Hoppy Holidays!Hey, BOTpeeps! Just wanted to give you a heads up as to why there hasn’t been a new comic this week. Well, for the past couple of months, I’ve been working to sell off part of my vast comic book hoard (I’m frankly running out of space in my apartment, something I’m sure many of you can relate to) and I finally got an offer for it about a week ago! Unfortunately, they want each of the comics sorted according to a checklist they e-mailed me, and delivered to them by December 26th. Well, that’s all well and good, but sorting thousands of comics and getting them packaged up for mailing takes time. A lot of time. I’ve been working on this for 12-15 hours every day since last weekend and am just now getting to the letter “P.” I need to get these shipped out by next Monday to guarantee they’ll get there by Friday so, needless to say, I’m under a little time pressure. No doubt I’ll be spending this entire weekend getting the rest of these comics sorted and ready to ship. which is totally bumming me out since this process has taken me away from getting to this year’s Christmas Bat story, which I’ll try my best to debut before Christmas. Anyway, thanks for letting me vent and sorry for the delay! With any luck, I’ll be able to wrap all this craziness up by Monday afternoon and get back to work on JEFbot posthaste.

I also wanted to remind everyone about the New Grimwald Tees! I was hoping to screenprint these this Sunday, but that will probably be pushed to Monday due to all the above craziness. Regardless, the orders will go out next week so you should be seeing your shirts before the new year! And if you missed the blog post about it, any orders placed this month will also receive a free, signed, 5×7 Hoppy Holiday print featuring Grimwald, jefbot and Mu, sprinkled with a little Christmas magic. Here’s The BOTshop link if you’d like to order.

As always, thanks for your overwhelming patience, understanding and enthusiasm! I’ll keep you updated as things continue to move. Have a great weekend.
