If you haven't read it, last year's Christmas storyline was one of my favorites. So if you're new to the strip, I might humbly suggest you give it a try.
Also: now that the rush of Christmas orders has passed, I'd like to say "thank you" to everyone who voted with their wallets and got Sheldon books and original art for themselves or their loved ones. You're directly supporting the strip you enjoy -- and that support means a lot to me.
I've received so many cool e-mails from folks who are enjoying their just-arrived stuff, and let me tell you, there is no greater feeling as a cartoonist. Orders came in from Japan, Sweden, France, Austria, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Germany, Denmark, Spain, 10,000 people in Sussex, England, and a heapin' helpin' of Canucks and Americans. All of these different folks from around the world have ensured that Sheldon can continue it's new life online.
It's a gift that I don't take lightly...and I thank you for it.
