While some of us were representing at Blogher, others in the SMITH family were working their craft at Comic-Con, an even bigger geek-fest than Blogher.* Shooting War, our first webcomic, was up for the Best Digital Comic. We didn’t take home the gold, but that’s cool: Shooting War is still what one person recently told me, “the best thing I’ve read online in the past three years.” Word to that, and word to creators Anthony Lappé and Dan Goldman, whose incredible story will soon be an incredible book. Click here for a sneak peak. And read Lappé’s intense account of meeting Ray Bradbury, “The Future Ain’t What It Used to Be: Or the Great Bradbury Bummer.” (It’s not quite the brush with fame Lappé was planning).

In other breaking news, SMITH’s own comic creator-in-residence Josh Neufeld and his wife Sari Wilson just created a baby girl who answers to the name of Phoebe Feuer Neufeld.
