Coming Up In Episode 247 Of The Digital Strips Podcast: ???

Paul Southworth, cartoonified, angry

Yeah, no idea what we’re doing on this week’s show because it’s Steve’s pick and he hasn’t told me what he’s chosen yet. And he doesn’t even know about that fact because he doesn’t read our blog. You know, the one that supports the podcast that he co-hosts on a weekly basis?

In lieu of that news, Paul Southworth has put himself in his very own comic (pictured, left), playing a graphic designer who hates the characters he himself helped birth. Whoa.


Not Invented Here Latest Comic To Join TopatoCo Juggernaut

Chances are, if you own a webcomics-inspired T-shirt, it came from the TopatoCo home office. This massive warehouse of all our greatest webcomics fantasies houses merch from pretty much every single comic published on the web, or at least the ones worth mentioning.

Fitting, then, that Bill and Paul have joined the fold with their latest foray, Not Invented Here. Congrats, guys! A comic as fine as this deserves to be in such outstanding, distinguished company.


Tweet Thread of the Day ~FOR~ Monday, June 21, 2010

It was a busy Monday in Twitterville, so let’s get started! Kicking things off, it looks like Kate Beaton has another comic in the New Yorker. It features “tiny fat ponies” and is thus the most important thing you will read today.

beatonna good morning! our second cartoon was published in this week’s (june 28th issue) new yorker: about 1 hour ago via web

Up next, Kris Straub and Scott Kurtz have decided to start another podcast series, with this go ’round being a simple morning show wherein they discuss… well, pretty much anything and everything. Tune in live and your question/topic could be next!

pvponline Listen to Kris and I do a dry run of our new podcast, “The Morning After.” It’s audio only and it’s happening NOW. 9 minutes ago via Twitter for iPhone

Another fine find comes to us courtesy of Paul Southworth, this time in the form of the next great something from Jon Rosenberg, formerly of Goats. You’ll recall that Jon recently stepped away from that comic in favor of something more commercially accessible. This is that comic.

Southworth Get in on the ground floor of @jonrosenberg‘s great new comic, “Scenes from a Multiverse”, starting today! Retweet! 5 minutes ago via Seesmic Web

And last but absolutely not least, Meredith Gran grants us a peek into the beginning of a very long, but infinitely satisfying process that she is currently going through.

Tweet Thread of the Day ~FOR~ Friday, June 18, 2010

When you tweet a lot, you’re more likely to be our Tweet Thread of the Day. When you actually tweet quality topics, such as lunch choices and beard updates, you’re nearly guaranteed this honor. So it goes with Paul Southworth, who now adds another comic to his catalog with Isaac Splode. I’ll let the thread do the rest of the ‘splainin.

Southworth There’s a new “Isaac Splode” today, as well as a slight format change: about 1 hour ago via Seesmic Web

I figured stacking the panels 2 x 2 instead of 4 in a row would make them easier to read in the Tumblr format. about 1 hour ago via Seesmic Web

Hollywood pitch for Isaac Splode: It’s like “Ghostbusters”, “Men in Black” and “Hitman” had a three-way love child and kicked it into a wall 35 minutes ago via Seesmic Web
