Want to know more about Digital Comics? Start here...

Howdy all,
This is a basic one-stop-shop email with links to useful and enlightening information you might need to know about the Digital Comics frontier, though, to clarify, when we say Digital Comics, we're specifically talking about comics developed for the digital medium, using storytelling techniques not replicable by traditional print media. So, no digital comics presented in traditional form, or similar web comics. Not that there's anything wrong with them, they're a valid creative-style choice, but there's plenty of places out there already talking about those guys and gals.

So where to start?

"The Legend of Spacelord Mo Fo is an ass-kickingly kick-ass post-apocalyptic, space-western dramedy, with anime influences and a bit of that dark and sexy HBO stuff... but really, it's a love story... No... Really! Oh, and as an Advisory Warning ... it's for a more mature audience... well, not for 'kids' anyway... not really sure about the 'mature' part."
