Web(kinda)comics Wednesday
Posted by: Ian Chipman

A coupla-three week ago I wrote about using my brand-new iPhonish-like device to read comics.

Webcomics and the art of avoiding work
Posted by: Ian Chipman

So I was perusing the list of the 2009 Eisner Awards nominations this morning (I’m most invested in seeing the results for this category: Best Publication for Teens/Tweens Coraline, by Neil Gaiman, adapted by P.
