What are the haps my friends

November 6th, 2006: So Sheldon has changed hosting and URLs! You can now find it at Sheldon is not only a funny comic which incidentally features a billionaire 10-year-old BUT it's one with a fascinating history, because Dave has actually moved from the syndicate United Feature's (which put popup/popunder ads on his comic and refused to tell their online readers what the new URL is) to his own place, moving from the support network of a syndicate to going his own. You can read his post on his main page for more details! It's an interesting story and I wish Dave all the best and really think he's made the right decision.

I always find it interesting that outside of comics, a "syndicate" is usually something sinister that Batman has to punch a lot of dudes to break up, but in comics, somehow joining a syndicate is omg the best thing ever. I just wrote OMG there and didn't even capitalize it but we're cool!


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

One year ago today: t-rex has a cold :(
