- Will somebody please give Brian Warmoth, Friend of Webcomics, a break?
CBR News has confirmed that Devilâ€™s Due Publishing, the home of Tim Seeleyâ€™s â€œHack/Slashâ€ and Milo Ventimigliaâ€™s â€œRest,â€ among other titles, laid off two employees today: editor Cody DeMatteis and Marketing Manager Brian Warmoth.
Warmoth, you will recall, fled Wizard online (no link because they piss me off) scarce 11 months ago, and like fellow FoW Rick Marshall, has been both searching for and deserving of a permanent, long-term position in comics. If you know of any such, drop us a line and we’ll see that he gets it.
- Is it just me, or is Project Wonderful (even in these dread economic times) expanding its pool of advertisers? From the beginning, the users of PW (both those placing ads and those providing space) have been almost exclusively associated with [web]comics. As a result, there is a certain amount of monetary recycling within our
semi-dysfunctionalhumble li’l community but relatively little cash brought in from “outside”.
But of late, we seem to have been more broadly discovered by those wishing to vend to the sort that would frequent comicdom — for example, Sore Thumbs presently is seen as a good venue to advertise naughty ladies that want to meet you. Hey, as long as webcomics is getting paid, I have no problem with this.
- Finally: horrotacular photowork from Paul Taylor — a model, a camera, and bingo! His demon characters spring to creepifying life. Yikes.
