Pretty cool article! One correction... they start it with "More

by Joe Sparks as of May 2002). Millions of unique viewers have seen
Radiskull & Devil Doll by now. Radiskull can easily get 10k viewers
in a single day.

A long time ago, a great big story on the making of Spaceship Warlock
appeared in the 5th issue of New Media Magazine. Nearly 10 years later,

I'm still popping up in the great NewMedia.
