And, we're back up. There was a massive show of support for the blackout from the webcomics community. If nothing else, that so many could mod their sites on such short notice is a testament to the power of controlling our own means of distribution.
Here's a quick and incomplete list of what we saw: censored comics from Randall Monroe (xkcd) and Joey Comaeu and Emily Horne (A Softer World); blackout pages from Aaron Diaz (Dresden Codak), Zach Weiner (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal), Matthew Bogart (The Chairs Hiatus), Dirk Tiede (Paradigm Shift), (and a blackout drunk from Ambs Myers (Killer Spoons)); banners from Jeph Jacques (Questionable Content), the gang at Not Invented Here, David Willis (Shortpacked), Dan Shive (El Goonish Shive), Danielle Corsetto (Girls with Slingshots) and Dave Kellet (Sheldon); words of support from Dave Shabet (Dead Winter), Sandy Debreuil (Crowbar Benson), Meredith Gran (Octopus Pie), Joseph Hewitt (Atrexia Theatre), Scott McCloud (Zot!), Jamie Noguchi (Yellow Peril), and Tycho (Penny Arcade) (plus an episode of Penny Arcade TV).
As usual, Otter (A Girl and Her Fed), nailed the commentary:
...Don't spend all your fury on this one fight just because it got a lot of media attention. Recognize that even if (when) these bills fail, the next bill might not roll by with a huge bandwagon attached to it...
