2:47am: NEXT-DOOR NEIGHBOR - Radar video
The mini-documentary series Radar did their first ever episode on Next-Door Neighbor, the truelife webcomics anthology edited by Dean Haspiel, featuring many artists from ACT-I-VATE. Radar just converted all their fab docs into embedabble versions, so here's the one about NDN and read the comics free @ http://smithmag.net/nextdoorneighbor

The readings shouldn't take more than an hour and then all the readers, including other contributors to the ACT-I-VATE PRIMER will sign books for the rest of the event before heading off to a nearby bar for celebratory drinks.

12:42pm: PopMatters reviews the ACT-I-VATE PRIMER

"As someone who already spends more time in front of a computer than I would like, I often have trouble remembering to keep up with the webcomics I enjoy and feel intimidated by works that require me to catch up on 200 pages of backstory to enjoy the newest page. The ACT-I-VATE Primer serves as a good print introduction to these works, and I hope some of the longer running stories on the site find their way into print as well."
