Brad Hawkins, the creator of Monkey Law forwarded to me the press release for a new political/opinionated webcomics collective, SpinZone Comic. Both Hawkins and Comixpedia regular Eddie Caplan (who does Line Item Vito) are part of the new project along with four other webcomics.

In a world where a boundless plethora of informationis available at oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fingertips on the internet, the casual web surfer could be forgiven for thinking that it has all been done...especially in the political arena. But while the internet may have revolutionized politics as a unique forum for dialogue and activism,there are still exciting possibilities yet left unexplored.
Enter SpinZone Comics, the webÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first collective of politically oriented webstrips that consistently bring fresh ideas and images tothe tedium of talking heads in the digital blogosphere.
Webcomics are an understandably popular artistic form online- quickto read and easy to digest, they fit perfectly with the speed andaesthetic obsessed online community. Though comics can be used toaddress any subject, they have all too often been dismissed or pigeonholed into the insular gaming and fantasy genres. With itsunique blend of styles and political voices, SpinZone Comics aims to change all of that.
