WEREGEEK JOINS KEENSPOT
Submitted by Chris Crosby on July 30, 2008 - 20:18
As first announced at Comic-Con International: San Diego's annual Keenspot panel on Saturday, the popular gaming comic WEREGEEK by Alina Pete has joined the webcomics network.
WEREGEEK is a fun mix of reality and fantasy that blurs the line between role-playing games and real-life. Hunted by mysterious foes, the Weregeeks have taken to the shadows and game only by the light of the full moon. When Mark, a "normal" guy, gets bitten by the gaming bug, he has to come to terms with his new life as a geek. "I'm trying to show that role-playing games are really not as weird as people think, and that geeks have regular lives and jobs too," said creator Alina Pete.
Said Keenspot CEO Chris Crosby, "It's awesome to have WEREGEEK and Alina Pete on the Keenspot network. "Not only is it a lot of fun, it's a rare unique twist on the gaming geek comic."
"I'm really excited about being a part of Keenspot," said Pete. "There's already some great gaming comics on the 'Spot, and I'm happy to join their ranks."
A new comic can be found every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at weregeek.com.
