BEIJING, 3. Feb.2005 -- The world's first newspaper printed on gold paper was officially issued in Shenzhen, in southern China's Guangdong province yesterday.

Downloading comics: threat or menace?
Topic: Comics
I read about downloading pirate scans of comic books on Boing Boing 6.Jan.2005. The post was about this Newsarama thread. It says Z-Cult FM is "the largest BitTorrent feed for pirated comics... hosts the torrent files that allow people to download comics that other people have scanned in."

»Many bloggers wrote about this, and I like what Laura Gjovaag said in Bloggity-Blog-Blog-Blog: "There are Golden Age stories that are not in print, DC has no plans to ever reprint them, and buying the individual issues would bankrupt me. I have no moral problem downloading those stories, as I will buy any reprint DC puts out and if I ever have the money I'd buy the originals, too. I have serious issues with more modern books, however, and especially with any book that's actually in print."

»Jason St. Claire says "Scanning comics is like crack; it's addictive". Read the article 'Free Comic Book Day 24/7/365: The Scurvy Dogs of Comics Piracy' at

»Personally I don't have the time to search for and download comics. I buy some trade paperbacks and I read a few comics online. I prefer comic books printed on paper, and today you can find almost any old comics on eBay. But I guess if I was 15 years old I'd be downloading comics all the time.

»Right now "are experiencing problems but will be back on Feb.8th.2005."
