We got together, we recorded, and we got as far as the news. After that, for some reason, the audio fell out of synch for a good chunk, then re-synched.
So here's what works. Sorry about the tech issues. We hope to resolve them for next week.
Around the web: - The first 18 pages of the fantasy webcomic "Gaia" have were released November 27th at http://www.gaiacomic.com/ "Gaia" is the new comic of the creators of the comic strip "Sandra and Woo" ( http://www.sandraandwoo.com/ ), the German author Oliver Knörzer and the Indonesian artist Powree. "Sandra and Woo" is updated twice a week since October 2008 and now has 30,000 regular readers and up to 100,000 page views per day. "Gaia" will also be updated with two colored pages per week from now on.
The comic takes place in the self-created world of Gaia where political tension between the two most powerful countries Cania and Midgard has grown in recent years. Similar to several of his classmates at the "Academy for Arcane Studies and Material Arts", the young warrior Ilias Oter is much more interested in the beautiful wizard Lilith Caillean than in politics. But soon he has to learn that Lilith is standing in the eye of a dark storm that is going to sweep across the whole world...

- Comic Creators for Freedom is once again raising money to fight human trafficking. Like previous years, they're compiling a huge wallpaper from many popular artists (and possibly you!) Follow the link to find out how you can get involved, or donate to the cause.
- Remember the webcomic Freakangels? Well Paul Duffield, the artist on that webcomic is in the process of launching his own webcomic, The Firelight Isle. The story revolves around two young characters who have been friends since birth; a weaver named Anlil and Sen a spearman in training. The world is a fantastical one that forms a backdrop on which to explore human culture in a fictional setting. Duffield has started an IndieGoGo campaign (similar enough to Kickstarter) to raise some money so he can spend more time working on it.
Milestones: Local: - Incubus Tales will reach its 400th page uploaded on Friday Dec 2nd!
