Matt Bors is the subject of a feature on The Economist‘s science and technology blog:

[C]ompetition among leading political sites may spur demand for daubs. Mr. Bors is pursuing this goal at Cartoon Movement, a site based in the Netherlands and funded by a combination of investment and grants. He is trying to attract cartoonists from around the world while encouraging websites to commission comics. Artists are paid a flat rate of €150 ($210) per item, and publications pay modest usage fees. Mr. Bors also wants to encourage comics journalism, in which contemporary news is presented in an extended narrative form.

    Matt definitely deserves the attention. I’ve been passing around his recent “Captain America” comic at the office because I found it so funny. People immediately assumed it was print media and then I had to explain to them the entire concept of Warisboring.com.

    “It’s for people interested in war. And cartoons.”

    And don’t worry, I e-mail your link around too. . .
