Mills Brings Devil Online
By Brian Jacks


Modern Tales, a publisher of subscription-based webcomics, announced today that Ignatz-winner and Xeric-grantee Scott Mills, creator of Big Clay Pot, My Own Little Empire and Trenches, will be creating a new online series exclusively for Modern Tales subscribers, updating every Tuesday and Thursday on the company's flagship website www.moderntales.com.

"We're excited to bring Scott on board the flagship site," said Manley. "Space Devil is one of Scott's sillier creations, like nothing else in comics, really -- I mean that in the best way -- 'Fancy Froglin' is the closest touchstone I can come up with, but, you know, there's no frog and no boner. You can tell that Scott's really pouring his artistic heart into it. The use of color alone is really unique. This work really reflects what we call the 'new mainstream' in comics -- comics that can appeal to any grown-up, reasonably curious and reasonably cultured human, not just a select cadre of hardcore devotees. This 'new mainstream' is what Modern Tales is all about."

Mills joins a line-up of approximately 30 other cartoonists on moderntales.com, which publishes the work of cartoonists well-known in the print comics industry (Donna Barr, James Kochalka, Gary Chaloner, Tom Hart, Roger Langridge, Lea Hernandez, etc.) alongide the work of
rising stars from the webcomics world (Cayetano Garza, Jr., Shaenon K. Garrity, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Dorothy Gambrell, among others).
