Steve did some Underground art as part of The Hero Initiative’s WAKE UP AND DRAW fundraiser. You can see the art here.

They’ll be putting all the pieces they’ve gathered up for auction starting September 18th.

Coloring Underground was just a sideline for Ron Chan. He’s a top notch illustrator. He just posted a terrific pin up featuring Wes and Seth in trouble over at our studio’s sketchblog.

Via Techdirt:

“As part of (DHS) Agent Reynold’s argument as to why Torrent-Finder is liable he points to a series of posts by the Torrent-Finder Admin in
the site’s forums. Specifically, he names the following:

I was able to view several posts by the user “Torrent Finder,”including “Top 10 Most Pirated Movies on BitTorrent,” “Piracy in the Music Industry,” “Piracy Can Boost Book Sales Tremendously,” “The First Episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ Leaks to BitTorrent,” and “Piracy domain siezure bill gains support.”

“In other words, the “support” that Agent Reynolds provides for why Torrent-Finder’s domain should be seized is that he claims that
Torrent-Finder’s admin linked directly to infringing material. But that’s not true. Instead, the admin was simply pointing to a bunch of
different news stories. Even worse, some of those news stories highlight why the claims of the MPAA, which Agent Reynolds relies
upon, are simply made up — such as TorrentFreak’s story about comic artist Steve Lieber (which was actually based on a Techdirt story
about how Steve Lieber embraced the so-called “pirates” and ended up making a lot more money — we later interviewed Steve about his
experiences)…. How is that evidence of probable cause? “

I’m trying to get up to speed with digital comics formats, so I’m putting this up as a test. Flytrap #1 is a short comics story that my wife wrote and I drew. Is it set up correctly for your readers?
EDIT: I’ve used Zipcleaner to strip out the hidden Mac files. Here’s a new version:

It’s a great little story, and there are more in the series. If you like it you can thank us by using the paypal “donate” thingy. But mainly just tell me if I did it right.

Hey there:

I can’t begin to say how thrilled we are with the response we’ve been enjoying. We’ve got more books on order from Image, and they should be here next week. As soon as we get them, we’ll start signing, sketching and shipping!

If you’re looking for a hard copy of the story right now, try your local shop, or TFAW or Amazon. Or we’ve still got some sets of the original comic series in stock in the Etsy store.
