When David Anez used a collection of pictures from a popular video games as a placeholder while he worked on his real comic, he didn't know he was inventing a genre. One listing of comics based on these "sprites" (that's the nerd word) has "more than 1,200 entries," says this Wired article. But, like the article, we also wonder what will happen when the legal blokes scent money here. If that doesn't bother you, you might want to check out Arnez's How To Make A Sprite Comic.
Also on Wired, also on comics, but more recent: that beep on your celphone? It could be your daily dose of Garfield coming through. A supplier called GoComics will message them to you at about US$3 a month. Worth it? Tell you what, give us them dollars, and we'll send you links to the best strips of the day, every day. Ok, two dollars? A dollar?
