Gasp! Could Glenn and poor Samuel be dead? I suppose you’ll just have to come back next week to find out!
Lots of site news this week. Dana and I just wrapped up a big meeting, and besides all the writing and drawing jive we went over, we have a ton of new features planned for the site. I don’t want to get too deep into the details, but in the next few weeks we’re going to be implementing a ton of new things, ranging from ohnorobot search to a whole new look for the page in general. It may take us some time to work in the larger alterations, Dana and I being just two lonely, slightly overworked people, but the plan is set and in motion, so what I’m saying I guess is that the radness of the site is going to be increasing a bit more each week from this point on.
Of note, the first, and easiest, Web addition we have is the opening of a Twitter account. Hooray! You can follow us here, at this link: http://twitter.com/leadpaintcomics
I don’t actually use Twitter much myself personally, as discussed here, but I know from our analytics that a decent chunk of our readership is twitter-friendly. Not only will our Twitter feed provide update remidners, but Dana and I will be handing out periodic sass like it’s fine hotcakes, as is the fashion with Twitter. So, if you like sass, thing that are similar to fine hotcakes, or need a new way to keep up with the comic, give us a follow.
Aside from site improvements, I don’t have too much to report. My Ultimate Spider-man #3 came in the mail this week, and it was great, as always. The new art is still a little weird, but overall I’m starting to really like it. Once again, if you’re looking for a “classic” super hero comic to read, I don’t think there’s been anything better than USM in years. You need to start reading.
I’m super-psyched for Dragon Age:Origins as well. I spent most of my morning reading the teaser copy on their Web site, which was a pretty great way to spend a Sunday morning. I’ll leave you to explore the site on your own, which you can see here, but I do want to mention a couple areas of interest:
-There is so much game lore up on that site, if you’re even a half-decent fantasy nerd, you should be vibrating in your computer chair with glee and general euphoria. I mean, there are little blurbs on that site about elf ghettos and how the empire handles the naming of their calender, or as I like to call them, “fish hooks for Mike’s imagination.”
-Make sure to check out the shapeshifter screens, because they show how it’s possible to shapeshift into a giant spider and maul fools who don’t know their place.
-There is a fun little flash game you can play to bide the time until the game’s release. Not only that, but if you beat it, you win a special code for an in-game helm to be used in the game proper. Well-played EA, well-played …
