February 16, 2007 - The "Cubetoons" comics are provided to IGN by illustrator JKR. The series, which has in the past poked fun at Nintendo's consoles and the IGN editors, began its life in the GameCube N-Query section, hence its platform-specific name. JKR still uses the Cubetoons name and regularly updates his official website for the funnies, www.cubetoons.com.
However, with Nintendo's transition to its next generation console, Wii, we have decided to move the funnies out of the mailbag area and into their own article types. We have done this for two reasons: first, because we want to make them more accessible to readers; and second, because this way we can easily relate all of the comics, making the process of reading back-editions much more intuitive.
In addition, since the funnies themselves may no longer be either GameCube or Wii-centric, we are referring to them locally as IGN Toons. The comics can also be found under their original name at the official Cubetoons website.
