The nice chaps at a bit nice dot com have done a nice roundup of some comics they picked up at the WebAndMiniComixThing back in March. Titles reviewed are The Bedsit Journal, Sklent, My Spacehorse Weekly, Girl Spy, Stripped Bear, Hong Kong Pussy, Viva Che Fly, Mr Beltman, The Midnight Ninja and Local Girl.

Most of the titles mentioned are available at Gosh in London, to which a bit nice is tenuously related, in that most of the gang work there or used to work there...

I submitted yet another t-shirt design to Threadless.com to be voted on and hopefully printed. This one might actually win...

So be a pal and help that happen! If I get enough high scores the shirt will be printed and sold from the site and I will win some prizes. Take a look at it and give it a score. Yes, you do have to register and no, they won't send you lots of junk.

I've been ordering a fair few cool t-shirts from US sites recently (the exchange rate makes them cheaper than UK shops, which is somewhat surreal) and the obvious question is, are there any other UK cartoonist-types submitting designs to these sites? And if not, why?
