Comjourn.com With my job, I spend a lot of time keeping tabs on the best new music, trending Web start-ups, and painfully cute cat videos. In my never-ending search for the best of the Web, I stumbled onto ComJourn.com, a refreshing new project from two talented Columbia College students. Erik Rodriguez illustrates the unique journalism of Darryl Holliday in a rather perfect mashup of comic journalism.

As it turns out, the duo was awarded an Albert P. Weisman Award that will allow them to print a compilation of stories later in the year. While the stories look great on the Web (the site provides a number of different views), I can't wait to get my hands on a printed copy, which is how these pieces deserve to be read. Here's to hoping this genre catches on beyond the Chicago skyline.
