Yah, although unfortunately right now it's on an 'update whenever' status, which usually doesn't bode well.

The Ramon Perez comic? It's being updated more regularly now. He just finished the AMAZING Tale of Sand and had been really really busy while working on it.

Chapter 2 of the Wormworld Saga is up, don't know how many people were keeping track. :)

The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed.

You should get acquainted! The Dark Tower goes off the rails a bit towards the end but it's an excellent read.

They are releasing an eighth Dark Tower book soon, which takes place between the 4th and 5th books. So it is sort of the Dark Tower 4.5

Nice find, TMCM, Corporate Skull is great!

I spent my entire lunch yesterday catching up with the archive.

It's too bad that Dresden Codak kickstarter probably won't quite hit 700k, weekly updates would be epic. I am really still kind of stunned by the amount of money he has gotten, though.

Me too, honestly. His new stuff is just way less interesting, and his "update every 3 months maybe" schedule is pretty annoying.

Meanwhile he's spamming Indistinguishable From Magic with livestreams of him re-designing art for some pop-culture something like three times a week. Maybe draw Zelda less and do your damn comic.

A friend of mine is involved with a comics kickstarter. As usual, her art is amazing. I worry about their reward structure, though - $100 for two printed, signed copies, with two more copies of issues 4-8 if they hit $39k? Seems... kind of crazy.
