Scott Kurtz of the PVP webcomic has just posted about a new shirt available in his webstore. I think it is a hilarious slogan. “I’m killing newspapers by reading webcomics.” Ha ha, it’s funny because its true.
I like the little throwaway comment at the bottom of that page: “A follow up to our classic “I’m killing buggy-whips by driving in my auto-mobile” tee shirt from the late 1800s.”
I’m not sure this is how it is supposed to go, but I started listening to the Webcomics Weekly podcast first. I did not read any of the webcomics by any of the show’s principals. I had previously listened to the Blank Label comics podcast and was curious about this one. After listening for a while, I have subscribed to all four of the comics in question and now I even watch things like their goofy vlogs from Baltimore Comicon. I might be the first person to come to the comics in this fashion. I get the feeling that pretty much everyone that listens to their show is already a fan.
