Local: - The upgrade of Comic Dish is steadily going forward. The proposed new system is Comicpress-based and is being adjusted to allow the features you request. But first you must request the features! There is a forum thread where you can discuss the upgrade and learn more about it.
Around the web: - The SOPA and PIPA bills have been delayed. It's more or less looking unlikely that either of them will pass.
- Fans of Penny Arcade put the hurt on an obnoxious customer service rep when he got flippant and unruly with a man who asked why his gaming peripheral had not been delivered yet.
- Comic artist Ryan Sohmer of Gutters got in trouble when he sent a Christmas card to major comic publishers of popular comic book characters worked into a picture of The Last Supper. Apparently Marvel was none too pleased and reprimanded him.
- The glorious Rob Liefeld has joined Keenspot!!! His character Avengelyne (famous from Liefeld's picture with the impossibly thin waist) is now starring in her own webcomic. Now before you go there to laugh, know that he's not the artist, but only responsible for the story.
Milestones: Local: - The 503 is a year old as of January 1st.
