I can't answer the first question, but I can answer the second.
War of the Webcomics was something I drew to sell at MIX.
I didn't sell very many copies.
The characters on the red and blue teams are from my previous webcomics. (I don't blame anyone for not recognizing them. Amuse Me! has been off the internets since about 2003. Jack of All Trades
's archives are still online.) War of the Webcomics was meant as an introduction of the new comic (Northwind) so I put it up on the site so more people could read it. I'll probably move it to its own section on the site after a month or two.
