And a concession to the 21st century, a small hit counter...
Old Updates, archived on sexy July 12, 2002!
May 29 - Update so early!
Yes, I'm off to Madison, Wisconsin this week, there to charm and amuse whoever I can in the hope that at least one of those charmed is a publisher or editor or high-up decision-maker at a fancy alternative news & entertainment weekly, someone able to make the decision to run my cartoon and begin the new age of BtAF madness. What does all of this mean to you, the humble reader of the Internet? Well, if you happen to have checked this site before Friday, you're finding out that there's an update a full two days early! WHAM! How do you like that, huh? Here's the long-awaited cartoon...
May 24 - A little tardy with the update
Sorry folks. Long night of watching Coppola's Bram Stoker's Dracula. Terrible, though some parts of the experience were truly delicious. Anyway, the cartoon this week's a bit old, but no fear -- I've got some crackers on the way, you bet! Here's the strip.
And hey --if any of you readers are Madisonites, I would love to hear about any good comic stores. I've got a free day on Saturday, so I'd like to hit a place or two and try to interest them in my astonishing publications. And that means you won't have to order them through the mail!
May 17 - Star Wars, and if they're... OUR wars...
Whew. What a week. What a bunch of weeks it's been, since I was born. Wild. By now everybody who cares has probably already seen Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Check out my impossibly positive review here. Cartoon-wise, nothing too fancy for you guys this week, just a little cartoon I call
May 10 - Yes, I've seen Attack of the Clones
A lot of people express jealousy and anger when they hear this, and I sympathize. All I can say is, it's coming in less than a week, and then everybody gets to find out for themselves what they think. Of course there's a publication ban, so you guys are gonna have to wait until next week to read my review.
What about cartoons?
And just to be clear, that's his hand all that stuff's ptooing out of...
May 3 - Spider-Day
Yes, the long, long, long-awaited big movie version of Spider-Man opens this very day in North America. Hollywood has finally --finally-- accepted its moral responsibility to give us a Spider-Man movie. I have seen it. It is excellent.. I haven't written my review for See Magazine yet, but when I do I'll link to it.
How's the weather, Steve?
Anyway, I hope some of you are able to enjoy this week's cartoon, a physical and emotional roller-coaster entitled
April 19 - Well, it's winter again
I guess it was crazy to start going on about how it was nice that winter was over, because I've learned again and again that you shouldn't talk about the future like you know what's going to happen. Case in point, the sweet taste of spring got about six inches of snow dumped on it here in sunny crappy Edmonton, and that means angry cartoons with mean sentiments. For example, here's a little number I worked up a couple of weeks ago, a gentle political tale I call
