Woo hoo!

Batton Lash is one of my favorites. I'm very proud to have his work on WCN. In print or online, he has always been a standard-bearer for quality, professionalism, and an outreach to the real, everyday, Soccer-Mom world (as opposed to the geeky minority who already know they like comics, like you and me). He calls his audience the "New Mainstream," playing off of the way that superhero comics are considered "mainstream" in the comic book world, even though they appeal to a specific, sub-cultural audience of die-hard fans. That audience is perfectly terrific -- but it's not, really, a mainstream audience. There are so many more people to be reached! His ideas about the new mainstream have been inspirational to me in all my efforts to go beyond the typical comics audience. Let's hope this attention helps him to achieve that goal!

The quickest, easiest way to get to the Supernatural Law webcomic, by the way, is this:

This is great. I also like how those Book of the Year Awards are almost the BOOYAs.


Fetus-X is the greatest comic in the world.
