It always seems the biggest news any strip pr collective can make is getting to the one year marker, and Blank Label Comics is no different. BLC was formed May 23, 2005, by a small group of keenspotters in Brad Guigar, Paul Southworth, Kristofer Straub, Paul Taylor, Steve Troop and David Willis. A year later the group has been living up to all the hype and has added 3 new members since.
To celebrate their anniversary there’s going to be a drawing. The winner of the drawing will receive a signed book from every member of Blank Label. To enter, send your name and address to drawing blanklabelcomics.com
All press releases aside the BLC group does have a lot of notches on it’s bed post but there was one particular claim to fame that made me clean my glasses. Here’s the statement I’m hoping is just a little jab at us DS guys who were so supportive when the collective went live:
Over the course of a year, BLC has established itself as a leader in the webcomics community, with a robust advertising system, several self-published books, a widely-copied podcast, and community activism for charity.
Just to clarify they’re claiming to have a widely-copied podcast. Is it just me or were we just stepped on? I mean by Sept 5th we had done pretty well for ourselves and there were already other podcasts out there which had come before them, but before us the only online web comic audio was Talk About Comics, Fanboy Radio, and My Extra Life. Don’t get me wrong but wouldn’t that imply that either Scott Johnson or Digital Strips have the widely-copied podcast?
