The Sidewinder (of Read My Complaints) y2cl review that he refused to publish. Thatâ€™s right, y2cl was in such a â€˜class of itâ€™s ownâ€™ that he did not post this review. But I am, for you all to read. Itâ€™s from September 2008.

The latest strip of Shuriken Diaries, "Mudansha", can be enjoyed by clicking HERESMOKEBOMB!
Think xkcd is the most popular stick figure webcomic around? Don't be so sure - Cyanide and Happiness consistently pulls in similarly large numbers on publicly available sources of data such as Alexa and Compete.
C&H resides on the website explosm.net which features work from creators Matt Melvin, Kris Wilson, Dave McElfatrick and Rob Denbleyker. We recently interviewed one of the four: Matt Melvin about the webcomic, the website and what's next.

- Features article update: Tim Broderick begins a new series of articles on taking your comic to a traditional publisher -- an option every comics creator should consider. I also catch up with what's going on now with five folks who appeared in the pages of ComixTalk in a previous October issues: Jon Morris; Jamie Robertson; Bill Roundy; Thomas K. Dye; and Lee Adam Herold.
- I'll have details on the winners of the Blade DVD giveaway tonight (entries closed this past Friday at midnight)
- This is interesting to me at least: Imaginova Corp., a digital media company that manages a network of several science and technology-focused Web sites, has acquired Newsarama.com, a news and community site geared for comic book fans. The companyâ€™s network of sites includes Space.com, LiveScience.com and Aviation.com. Though the new acquisitionâ€™s editorial is not science based, Imaginova CEO and president Dan Stone said that the site reaches a similar audience. (h/t Dirk Deppey)
- More on Zuda from Todd Allen.

AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 BLOGS
- Digital Strips reviews White Ninja.
- August Pollak has a new book of comics out: Junk in the Toaster will debut at this weekend's SPX.
- Tom Spurgeon (Comics Reporter) writes up his mixed feelings towards webcomics. Tom doesn't cover webcomics as much as he should which is a shame because he's a good, even-handed observor. More coverage of the digital screen from him will be good. As to the points he's making in his essay I've heard them all before and for the most part they're hardly worth making let alone taking the trouble to take apart. (Someday I will try to write a more coherent where we've been and where we're going type of essay though that may help serve as sort of an insta-rebuttal to some of the sillier memes of criticism of "webcomics".)
- Mike Hawthorne puts his comic Hysteria online.

One of the phenomenal cosmic powers bestowed upon bloggers by the gods of the internet (including but not limited to the former vice president Al Gore and that poor fat kid with the invisible light saber) is the ability to foist their opinions on unsuspecting victims. This is a power this reader relishes. So today I am going to pimp some comics I think you should be reading: Cosmobear, Havesomehats and Sluggy Freelance.

Mike Lacroix is a cartoonist, blogger and finely-tuned athlete. He's currently working on his third webcomic, the appropriately titled Foxy Lollop. His previous efforts include the long-running Gluemeat (since 2001) and the underground classic, Aren't We Real. Lacroix and myself were both founding members of the pioneering, but short-lived webcomics collective ALTBRAND.
