From Boing Boing:
Making Fiends is Amy Winfrey's hilarious and grim web-toon, which has just been picked up by Nickelodeon for TV. The premise is simple: Charlotte is a polyanna schoolgirl, while Vendetta is her savage mad scientist classmate who terrorizes the school by "making fiends" -- producing huge, terrible monsters. Charlotte makes friends, Vendetta makes fiends. It's great emo-toonery, a la Lenore, with a fantastic, dark visual style.
Hooray Amy Winfrey! She started out as an art school grad student with a penchant for muffins. Now, the sky's the limit. I think this may be the start of the next generation of mainstream kid's entertainment -- Flash cartoons, cheaply produced (web quality) but still entertaining and of high quality on the content end. I wonder if they'll change anything at all... Making Fiends is one of the best web shows around.
