First of all, I want to welcome all the new readers who have found their way here from the Phoenix Comicon, where I was at all weekend, handing out postcards, selling merch and meeting both new and longtime fans! I’m writing up a blog post now that I’ll be posting tomorrow about what a fantastic time I had there. Unfortunately,Β I just returned home from the convention yesterday, then worked at my job all day today, so I haven’t had any time to get back to the drawing board (aka drawing tablet) for Monday’s strip. Rest assured, although I’d like nothing more than to power through the night to get a new strip done (I’m creatively energized from interacting with all the readers, friends and peers, at the con!) I’m just physically exhausted, so I’m going to try and go to bed early tonight so I can shake off my zombie form, get back to my normal self, and get Friday’s strip done in a timely fashion. In the meantime, I’m hoping to finish my Phoenix trip write-up tomorrow, so come back for that, and then I’ll see you on Friday when we get back to Mombot’s deadly raptor-toe!

Again, WELCOME, WELCOME new readers! And thanks to my regulars for all the support you’ve shown over the past week, and for holding down the fort while I was away.
