Magical Adventures in Breakfast

Today's Wigu strip will be the last. From beginning to end, it is a truly a special piece of work -- one of my favourite comics ever, online or in print. I'm sorry to see it go, but I'm glad Jeff is ending it on top -- instead of dragging on forever until the comics becomes bland and repetitive, like I am planning on doing. Besides, I know that deep down, that brave little boy will live on forever in our hearts. I mean, unless Jeff shoots him.

The United Nations and the Red Cross are ready to accept donations if you are so inclined. Canadians can do as I did and donate directly through the Canadian Red Cross website. Browsing around those websites is also a sobering reminder of all the other areas in the world in need of aid. There is certainly no shortage of worthy causes in need of funding. There are a limited number of world problems that can be solved entirely by throwing money at them, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

She loves your electric dumplings

It never ceases to surprise me just how much this website's daily visitor count drops during the week or so surrounding Christmas. Several other authors of webcomics big and small have mentioned to me that the same thing always happens to them around this time of year. Perhaps this is an indication of just how many folks read our comics while they are at the office! Glad to see everyone is working hard.

Fuzzy may not care about the outside world, but... well, Fuzzy is kind of a dick. I think most of us are following the news pouring out of Southern Asia. It is almost impossible to wrap your mind around a disaster of this magnitude. I know the old saying about one death being a tragedy and a thousand being a statistic, but I don't think anyone can be that indifferent when they turn on their televisions and see what is really happening over there. There's no option to be blissfully ignorant of the details on this one. If you want to help out, even in a small way, you probably can't go wrong with the United Nations or the Red Cross.

Wandered around with nothing more than time on my hands

I'm back! I hope you all enjoyed Rikk's special... uh... thing on Friday. I also hope you had a wonderful Christmas, or if it is not your thing, a pretty good Saturday.

I was lucky enough to be given a copy of Flight, the much-hyped (and deservingly so) comic anthology spearheaded by Boltcity's Kazu Kibuishi. It's a gorgeous book, and an intimidating one to give a young cartoonist. The work is of such an enviously high calibur, and most of these artists are only a couple of years older than myself. Vera is even younger. Young artists, you will be motivated to either work much harder or quit and take up accounting. There is some truly wonderful stuff in there, and I eagerly await volume II.

I got some other great gifts as well, but unfortunately, no one was able to find me a reasonably-priced copy of the first Traveling Wilburys album. Somehow, it manages to be out of print despite the fact that it features some of the most famous musicians of the last fifty years. What the hell, people!
