  • Old site sinking, New needs linking

    Hey, remember how the studio I’m part of added several new members and changed its name from Mercury Studio to PERISCOPE? Well, Steve Lieber decided it was time to make the studio blog reflect that as well, and hit the Blogspot button that allowed the move to a new name, Periscopestudio.blogspot.com. But like a rational human he assumed the old blog name would be ended or at least refer to the same dns. HAW. Instead it became abandoned and was sucked up in minutes by a spammer’s web-crawling software, and they promptly pasted viagra and online gambling ads into a google cache of the site’s template. So now we’re all linked by name to home mortgage lenders and other vile creatures.

    So, if you want to help a down-on-its-luck comics studio out, link somewhere to the current site and eradicate an old link if you had it. Steve updates the blog with lots of good info on the other 19 members (who could also be updating the blog, yet strangely, don’t) and sometimes actual news emanates from there. And who knows, maybe we’ll offer loan refinancing and term life insurance like our old blog.

    I posted the link on the Comicart-L group, which gets heavy traffic. Hope that helps out. Gotta say, the Modok drawing by Colleen Coover is way cool!

    You know, I’m going to be repeating this post title to myself in an awful singsong voice for the next 24 hours.

    Um, Parker? The link in your margin is still trying to sell me Ciallis…

    It has the cadence of a Young MC line. Give it a listen.
