I had heard about comic easel and was thinking about moving over but was sort of hesitant. Thank you for this interview, which in turn eased my fears (ie. terrors) of switching over to comic easel and gave some great addons for WordPress. I will be switching over soon. Love listening to the Webcomic Beacon while I draw, keep up the awesome fun!
