It is perhaps a sign of how far we have come since the infamous Danish Mohammed cartoon crisis that the Danish daily newspaper Information has today published three strips from Jesus and Mo in its print edition: danny, good, and badge (though only "good" appears on the website).

Warren Ellis' forum The Engine has a thread on webcomics and the direct market (i.e. comic book shops). The discussion ends up being more about the problem retailers see with creators debuting their comics at cons without offering them at shops at the same time, but also has some interesting discussion for webcomics with an eye on the traditional comics market.
Retailer Brian Hibbs:
In most cases, my knee-jerk reaction to something (anything) that is being made available to me secondarily is going to be minimal if not nil orders. [...]I've got no real concern about creators having an equal or better crack at the hardcopy sales, but where the advantage directly turns against me (ie: offering for sale BEFORE I have a fair crack at the work... be that on-line, or, yup, even in person at a convention or something), then I'm way way WAY less likely to support that work with my purchasing dollars as a retailer.
Hibbs elaborates a bit on this saying that he does not see as big a problem with comics offered free online. The problem is if the consumer has already paid for the comic in some format, which would make him/her less likely to buy it again through a store.

Brinkerhoff's long awaited debut comic book is being released in April.
"I Bet It Tastes Like Licorice" will be a full-color collection of awesomeness starring the web's favorite snarky rabbit divorcee. The first issue will be available at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle on March 31 and April 1. Soon after fans will be able to pick up their copy at brinkcomic.com. Any overstock from the convention will be available for a limited time as signed copies from creator Gabe Strine.

I was wandering around the DrunkDuck forums when I stumbled upon a post that DJ Coffman wrote. Basically his comic Hero By Night will be debuting this March! If you pre-order it now through New Dimensions Comics, you'll get a free limited edition print. Additionally, if you're one of the first fifty to pre-order, he'll also include a free sketch card!
American Jr is another comic on DrunkDuck and I just found out that the trade paperback is being published by Images Comics! It should be coming out in June and will contain the first 150 strips plus some extra stuff.
In other news, DrunkDuck recently redesigned the control functions and added some new features. Users can now create their own blogs/forums as well as have access to their comic statistics. There should also be a new creators interview coming out soon!
