Congratulations to Ross Richie and BOOM! By just putting out good books on a regular schedule, they have won Wizard's Best New Publisher, expanded from two books a month to four, and now have offices and minions etc. The website now has its forums up -- where they may be nice enough to host a Kung Fu Monkey forum. Ellis convinced me ages ago that babysitting forums was a pain in the ass, but Ross doesn't mind turning on the fire-hose regularly, so far be it from me to stop him.
Also, the fine folk at Beaucoup Kevin are doing a regular comic strip for BOOM! Kevin is the creator of Otter-Prime, the most fiendish stick-wielding supervillain on earth!
