Bandages on my legs and my arms from you

As it turns out, my guest strip for White Ninja ran on Monday, not on Tuesday. I was a little confused, I suppose! Anyhow, said guest strip can be viewed right here if you missed it. Subbing in for a comic as weird as White Ninja was certainly a challenge, so I tried to do a guest strip that was even weirder. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Three days left to order I'm Communism shirts! They won't be available again until November!

I'm not breaking down, I'm breaking out

I have done a guest strip for White Ninja, but it won't actually be going up until tommorrow (Tuesday). Don't worry, I'll remind you all about it again when I update on Wednesday. EDIT: My bad, it went up today! You can view my White Ninja guest strip here.

I may have joked about the silly rivalries between webcartoonists, but in all honesty, most of the time I've found other webcartoonists to be some of the coolest folks I know. That's probably why this time of year always gets to me.

You know... the time of the year when masses of webcartoonists start posting their post-convention reports and photos. It's just a reminder that, for only a scant few days, so many of my online friends and cohorts got together in one physical location... and I was somewhere else! What a gyp. Hopefully, now that I am employed, I will be able to afford the trip stateside to the conventions next year, where I can finally meet John and Jeph and Tim and Brian and Neil and Jeff and everyone else in person!

Speaking of webcomics, the winners of the 2004 Web Cartoonists Choice Awards have been announced, and I'm not one of them. This is probably because lots of other very talented folks were nominated, but I'm not totally ruling out that it was because of the conspiracy.

I've said too much. The men in black suits are already at the front door. FIGHT THE CONSPIRACY!

Like clocks without their springs

Thus ends another Sam and Fuzzy storyline. Next week: sweeping changes, and yet comfortable familiarity! Startling innovation, but reassuring sameness. Don't miss it!

Not a single reader has emailed me about it, but I'm sure at least some of you noticed that I have been using a font to letter the strip since last Wednesday. You may recall a time when I boasted that lettering the strip by hand was faster than by computer, but that statement stopped being true a long time ago. While reading through the entire strip archive, the growing neatness and legibility of the lettering you see are not a result of my writing getting better, but of an increasing amount of time spent touching it up on the computer. Ending this unpleasant, time-consuming process was necessary for my sanity.

The font I'm using was constructed from my writing by extremely dedicated reader Leland Aldridge. It is saving me bundles of time, and I think it looks pretty sharp to boot. Applause and thumbs up, folks.
