Today is the second annual Dialog Free Comics Day (not to be confused with last week's Free Comic Book Day, which did feature Jim Woodring's dialog-free Weathercraft and Other Unusual Tales). By happy coincidence, pages 10 through 16 of Electric Puppet Theatre are dialog free, and we are thrilled to unwittingly take part.
You can check out the rest of the comics at Noel Curry's site.
Shaenon Garrity, magnificent human being, has posted our fan art on Skin Horse today. In the unlikely event that you aren't already reading Skin Horse, you can start here (and then you'll be wanting to check out Smithson and Narbonic).
BeamItDown Software, makers of the iOS based iFlow Reader, are going out of business. According to their website:
The key point here is that all sellers now get a 30% commission and Apple now wants a 30% fee, which is all of our gross margin and then some.
On a more positive note, from Jonathon Coulton:
Here are some things I do differently from some other artists: I own all my music 100%, which means I have complete control over how I sell it (or not). I can give it away, I can bundle it on a USB key or in a zip file, I can allow people to make and post music videos, and I don't have to deal with lawyers or labels to do any of that. I also get all the profits.
Again, the full post is worth reading.
Well, this has been a long time coming.
