My forumers have pointed me in the direction of a really cool webcomic... Lackadaisy! The mix of real-world history with animal characters reminds me more than a bit of Don Rosa's work, although the art and writing themselves are not especially similar to his. The visuals are incredibly lush and expressive, and feature the kind of strong posing that you tend to get more often from animators than comic artists. And the story -- a 1920s prohibition romp told with, uh, cats -- is equally enjoyable.

As many of you know, my BA is in American history, and I am basically a huge nerd for comics that manage to touch on the subject without losing their pure entertainment value. Lackadaisy is one of those comics. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

In other news, I have been really actually responding to my emails for three whole days now! Can I make it to four? CAN I?

One of my new years resolutions for 2007 is to be better about responding to my emails. There was a time when I would respond to every single one! But at some point, it all became too much. I still read them all, sure, but I started putting off my responses. I kept telling myself that at some point, I'd go back and answer all the ones I'd put on hold.

But that was a long time ago, and now I have a stockpile of emails so old and so immense that there would be no point in even trying to reply to them all. And that makes me feel bad, because I love getting emails from readers, and I don't want to discourage that by ignoring them.

So, it's time for a fresh start. Really fresh. Today fresh. From this point on, I'm going to try to respond to ever email that seems like it needs a response. And I'm going to try to do this right away, every week, so that I can keep ahead of the onslaught and make sure I don't wind up with another pile too intimidating to deal with.

This is my resolution! I think I can go without breaking it for, oh, at least two weeks. I will do my best. Go team!

Save point

Scott Pilgrim is the business. It meshes amazing energetic artwork with a charmingly bizarre story that's one half character drama and one half video-game boss fight. But do you know what? I don't even have to tell you why it's good! You can just see for yourself by checking out one of the many free online previews. Scott Pilgrim: it's what's for dinner.

In other news, I have eleven different t-shirt designs on sale right now. Isn't that insane? I think it's probably too many for me to afford to keep in constant stock. I'm going to have to make some hard choices and retire a design or two soon.

Or maybe I should retire all of them! Maybe it's time to start imposing my nudist agenda first hand.

(No, that last part wasn't serious. It was only a joke. You can tell because I'm laughing, and I always laugh at my own jokes.)
