A REPORT in the New York Times said that DC Comics, which publishes a heap of comics like Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman, is looking to entice some online talent.

The site, introduced today and dubbed Zuda Comics, lets people bung in eight panel comic cartoons.

Those will be reviewed by editors at the firm, given awards, and also a contract to produce the online comic for a year.

The comics don't have to be about super heroes and the like, however. Cartoonists can submit whatever they see fit.

Naturally, DC Comics is seeking to expand its online business. There's little to stop a talented cartoonist going it alone in these wibble webble days. Many have already.

There's more here. µ
