  Bloomington Permaculture Guild member Kevin Polk just launched a new 
web comic strip:

        Permyz <http://www.permyz.com> Composting 7,000 years of empire.

Permyz is a light-hearted daily comic about a bunch of suburbanites 
trying to convert their unintentional community into an ecovillage.  
Rather than just kvetching about a very broken status quo, the strip 
showcases positive alternatives: permaculture, transition towns, deep 
ecology and a host of others that don't get much press. The name was 
inspired by permaculture, a system of regenerative design whose students 
sometimes refer to each other as "Permies <http://www.permies.com/>."

This strip contains no pesticides, sprays or animal products. It was 
inked by hand in the USA and minimally processed in GIMP 
<http://www.gimp.org/> on an old laptop running Ubuntu 

Kev Polk, who writes and draws the comic, earned his permaculture design 
certificate in 2006, published his first book <http://gaiome.com> in 
2007, and participated in Transition Training  in 2009. Prior to that, 
he worked in software, astronomy, space exploration and archiving. He 
lives with his wife Kimberly in Bloomington, Indiana.
