Tuesday July 3, 2001:

UPDATE: This page originally held a response to a series of text pieces attacking me, but I've been in direct communication with several artists involved, and things have calmed down quite a bit, so I've removed the response to a separate page. "Tycho" (of Penny Arcade) and I had a good phone conversation and he's posted this, so as far as i'm concerned the flamewar is over. If you've read the original Penny Arcade news story and wanted to see my response, it's here. But if you've already read Tycho's newer post, linked above, don't bother, it's just a footnote in comics history now.

All's well that ends well.
