I made it to 2008 in one piece? Whoo! January 2, 2008 Posted by Mookie
A couple of notes about the first two strips of the new year. First off, you'll notice that my signature in the corner still has the '07 mark. This is because these strips were drawn during my holiday break, so I was still in the habit of signing stuff '07. You'd think a guy who writes a strip about a seer would have that kind of foresight. Oh well.

Second, Madam Zanzibar from yesterday's strip is... me. A couple of years ago I dressed (in drag) as a fortune teller for Halloween and called myself Madam Zanzibar. I carried around a pair of crystal balls and asked people if they wanted to see their future... in my balls. I found the "character" so amusing that I'd always wanted to put her in the strip. So there she was. That's some new year's trivia for you.

Finally, I seem to have accidentally immortalized my godfather, Uncle Greg. He was my father's best friend from high school and tragically passed away a few years ago. I felt a pang of rememberance when I realized that our very own Gregory Deegan would be an "Uncle Greg." So there's some more trivia for you.

Now on to business.

I'll be attending IKKICON and KATSUCON in February.

January's Donation Wallpapers will be up by the end of this week.

My New Year's Resolution is to finally get my ass in gear when it comes to answering e-mails. If you wrote to me over the holidays I'll be doing my best to reply to you by the end of this week. If you don't hear from me, feel free to write me another e-mail reminding me of my Resolution. I'm serious about this. You're all the greatest readers in the world and you deserve to hear back from me ASAP if you have a question or comment. I just have a bunch of e-mails to sort through after being away for the holidays.

Wow. Long news post.
That's all from me for now!
