Hey, Scott, Tony, everybody :)
Here's an ad for the Pantheon/ROCR crossover for those who might be keen..

During their quest for the Towel of Douglas Adams (see here: http://keenvention.keenspace.com/keenquests/kq_one/keenquest1.html) Kel (of Clwyd-Rhan) and Satan (of Hell, naturally) find themselves transported into each others' worlds. While Satan finds Clwyd-Rhan to be a rather unfriendly place for a
demon, Kel discovers that Arcadia can be a little *too* friendly, especially if you've got no clothes on.

From opposite ends of the globe, Australian cartoonist Timmerryn and Dutch cartoonist Reinder Dijkhuis drew "Even in Arcadia" together, emailing each other their contributions over a period of several months. What started out as a neat idea to fill a few webcomic updates with turned into an ambitious, book-length crossover - a month's worth of supersized daily
episodes in full color.

The two comics that cross over in "Even in Arcadia" are both fantasy- and pagan-oriented, and both are influenced by Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, ancient mythology and folktales. But there are also differences: Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan (http://www.rocr.net) has a tightly-inked
line and CG colors, whereas The Pantheon (http://www.pantheoncomic.com), until recently at least, had a friendly, pencil-based look.
Instead of compromising their unique styles for a harmonious whole, the artists chose to emphasise the difference between the two styles in order to show the strangeness of the two characters appearing in worlds in which they don't belong.

Even in Arcadia - a daily crossover comic by Timmerryn and Reinder Dijkhuis.
Starts Monday 8th July at the Pantheon site.
