These may be the coolest commercials ever. (Does it really count as a commercial when American Express only shows up briefly over 4 minutes?) Jerry Seinfeld and Barry Sonnenfeld are making webshorts about Jerry Seinfeld and Superman. They are a lot like a few commercials Seinfeld did a few years ago (Patrick Warburton does the voice of Superman again). The first one is up at the website along with some extras (don't miss the sing-a-long to "Oh Yes! Wyoming!").

From Boing Boing comes this link to a site that is posting folks efforts at photoshopping real life versions of Far Side cartoons. A strange, but inventive concept. (A warning: the page takes a bit to load at first)

Itâ€™s time to wake up and smell the coffee.
Over the last few years, the UK indie comic scene has seen an explosion in quality and quantity. Perhaps compensating for the relatively small numbers of outlets for creators in Britain today, artists and writers have been turning more and more to self publishing with many astounding results, whether through traditional print media or the Internet.
