It's just one of those quiet news days (watch, right after I post, something HUGE will happen...). Have a great weekend!
MC HYPE-Z: The Sisters Grimm webcomic starts today with a schedule planned for weekly updates on Friday. Writer Dave Pauwels describes it as "The comic is your average adventure-comedy-political thriller-space rock opera. Set on Mars, in the year 2339, it follows a garage band and their exploits against a backdrop of Martian civil war." The webcomic is drawn by Nicolas R. Giacondino, who lives in Argentina - his Deviant Art page is here.
VIDEO GAMEZZZZ: Cameron Stewart reveals that he and Karl Kerschl and writing and drawing a new comic miniseries for Ubisoft, based on their hugely popular Assassin's Creed videogames.
PR0N: Erica Henderson explains in a short comic why 3D porn may not be such a good idea (SFW actually).

Rainy, dreary day in Washington DC today. And it's FRIDAY. Sigh... On an even more boring note, I'm slowly making some tweaks to everyone's "user account" (eventually I'll even get around to 'prettying up' your user pages) and you can upload a much better quality photo/picture for your user avatar here at ComixTalk now. Just log in and click on "my account" over there at the bottom of the right hand column, then "edit" and at the bottom of the page you should see where you can upload a picture for your user avatar.
