A New Set

Hello Readers,

This is the new series. Gilding the lily? Never. Just watering it with blessed effort. New things will spring up in the attending weeks, with comics coming every two. Posters are in the shop, our podcast is here. The sun is very bright. I'm going for breakfast.

The new episode: in many respects a normal episode.

Please visit the Freebies page for a number of tantalizing new items. First, we've got three new wallpapers, each depicting one of the characters introduced in this episode. Second, there's the podcast we posted last week. I didn't make al ot of noise about it because it's an experiment for us and it seemed best to gather some feedback first. It's been well-received, with an occasional caveat that it gets better than it begins. Please check it out, and let us know what you really think in the forum.

ATTITUDE 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists is a new book by Ted Rall. Dale and I are interviewed within, along with a slendid array of our contemporaries. Please pre-order Attitude 3 through Amazon! Not only will you be a trend-setting early adopter, but pre-orders helps more copies of the book get into bookstores!
