I just posted on your forum -- it's good to see your stuff again! I didn't know about the slave labor deal. I don't know if you remember meeting me at APE a few years back or not, I'm the guy who did Chutney Point, and I was also working on another comic that's since been retooled and i'm doing it online now. Anyway, i always enjoyed the Odd Adventure Zine stuff, and I'm looking forward to more of the web strip.
Good luck with it!
