Amongst the web comic picks on our most recent show was the excellent comic Scooter and Ferret. Since posting the show we’ve had a nice exchange with Georgia Ball, half of the team responsible for the comic and we have come to find out that there were a few inaccuracies in our original discussion on the show.
We had mentioned that Scooter and Ferret was a relative newcomer to the web comic scene with only 3 months worth of comics in their archive. Continue reading

Gather your list of links to individual web comics with this month’s topic in them, demons, and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter the contest. The winner will be announced on our next show.
The new topic for the month of October will be announced in the next week, so be ready to dive back out into the sea of comics for a new treasure soon.
Today’s comic is a little reflection on the differences of opinion that goes on around here at Digital Strips. It is also my clever attempt to tie in the random strip I posted in the last second during the last comic update. I’m showing two versions, the color and black and white versions. I’ve been playing around with coloring the strips recently and I am still not sure which I prefer. Let me know which one you think is best. Continue reading
Just a reminder that the Digital Strips charity auction is still going on for another day on eBay. We are auctioning off the original artwork I did for the Web Comic Telethon and all proceeds go to hurricane relief efforts. Also, the winner will be getting a free CD with all our shows so far on it. All proceeds go right to the Red Cross, so please bid generously.
You had to know one of these was coming. There’s been a slight flood of news over the past week and perhaps I can lessen the tide.
Small Press Expo – SPX has come and gone and there was more then a few web comics making their presence know. At this Con outside of DC they have the Ignatz Awards which recognize outstanding achievement in comics and cartooning. A panel of five cartoonists develop the ballot, which is then voted on by SPX attendees. One of the categories is Outstanding Online Comic which was won by The Perry Bible Fellowship (Nicholas Gurewitch) this year.
I’ve decided to move the Digital Strips comic updates to Thursdays instead of updating them with the show posts. I’ve found myself working on both the show and the comic on weekends, but I should really concentrate on one of them at a time. This will space out the main updates for the site anyway. So, until this Thursday here is a totally random and meaningless comic to tide you over.
The hugely successful Webcomic Hurricane Relief Telethon, organized by Brad Guigar and Blank Label Comics, has now passed. But, the effort continues. The site for the telethon will remain up and available for the foreseeable future and the next stage of charity is at hand. Blank Label Comics has collected many of the comics that were used in the telethon into a printed collection and now you can order the book.
During the recent Webcomic Telethon for hurricane relief I submitted a comic strip to be a part of the event and to help out. You can view it on the telethon site by clicking here. I was proud to take part in such an important effort and such a big event in web comics.
Now, I’m taking it one step further and putting the original artwork for that comic up for auction on eBay. You can find the auction on the other side of this link. Continue reading

It looks like TV stations are catching on faster then the print world, but then I think we all saw this coming eventually. You Damn Kid! is a long time member of Keenspot and has been rather well lately, so well that Owen Dunne and Keenspot have signed with 20th Century Fox Television and former Fox TV group chairman Sandy Grushow’s Phase Two to bring it to the talk box. How does a web comic manage to get on the good side of some TV executives? From the press release: Continue reading
