On Wednesday, January 6, 2010, @$$hole! turns 250 pages!
Trevor is excited to receive a visit from his online girlfriend Jess (see the 2008 and 2009 Drunk Duck Awards for Best Romance Comic), but little does he know that she's traveled all the way from Texas to Chicago just to break up with him. During the meet, Jess and Trevor lose their short term memory because of a magical hat. Can Jess's roommate Amanda help them regain their memories, or will she instead play match-maker and make sure that this strange couple have a happily ever after?

Monday, January 11th is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day. To participate, we formed the Comic Creator's Alliance–a group of over eighty comic book creators (both web and print) who volunteered our artistic talents to raise money and awareness for this cause. You may not know it, but there are currently 27 million enslaved people worldwide- more than double the number of enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. UNICEF estimates that 1.2 million children every year are sold into slavery, most of it sexual. The US Department of Justice estimates 16,000 victims of human trafficking are brought into the United States every year. Unlike slavery in the 19th century, what is happening today is happening in secret. So it won't end until awareness is raised, and people like you and me take a stand.
So here's what we did: each creator contributed an original drawing of one of our own female characters, and combined them into a single wallpaper image. The wallpaper features characters from The Phoenix Requiem, Girls with Slingshots, House of the Muses, Earthsong, Looking for Group, Shadowgirls, Marsh Rocket, The Uniques and three IDW Publishing titles: Fallen Angel, The Dreamland Chronicles and The Dreamer, and lots, lots more! Donate today to download this unique, once-in-a-lifetime wallpaper. The Donations Drive will last for two weeks, from January 11th - 24th. All proceeds will be split evenly between Love146 and Gracehaven House- two organizations working on rehabilitation of victims and prevention of this crime.

Note from Lora Innes, Creator of The Dreamer: Donations for this cause will go live January 11th at the CCA Site and at http://thedreamercomic.com/store.html
