Be sure to refresh your browser to see our brand new cover from the talented Gisele Lagace, currently handling art on the webcomic Penny & Aggie. May is our "all ages" issue and we should have a number of reviews of all ages webcomics this month. Our weekend update, however, includes a review of a decidedly not-all ages webcomic, Journey to Mt. Moriah which officially wraps up our April issue and to kick off the May issue, a new piece from Joel Fagin titled Reinventing Micropayments.
- Man Man, the saga of a man with all the powers of the average man (because he was bitten by a radioactive man, natch) will hit 1000 strips this May 18th.
- The Damn Good Comics blog reviews Zap!. (The blog is a good source of webcomic reviews: past ones include The Wings of Change, RÃªveillerie, and Indavo.)
- Max Riffnerâ€™s Quick Step won the 2007 Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics. (link from Comics Worth Reading blog)
JUSTIFY MY HYPE
- Dave Wright's webcomic Todd and Penguin is back.
- The Boids, a new webcomic by Steve Campbell and Larry Merrill takes flight today!
- The webcomic G.A.A.K. gears up to deal with an alien armada plotting to invade the Earth!
- The finale of Chapter 3 of Draven: The Vampire Chronicle is up!
- I saw Hot Fuzz last Friday (funny! if not quite as good as Shaun of the Dead). Spidey 3 made a HUGE amount of money despite mixed buzz. Not sure when I'll see it though... What movies are you definitely planning on seeing this summer?
