Sheldon In Your College Paper

Monday, August 27, 2007 - 09:46 AM

It's that time of year: you're headin' back to class, buyin' $400 chemistry books (that you'll sell back at the end of the year for $1.32), and divin' into the Sheldon archives between classes.

Over the summer, I had a few college readers ask me if and how Sheldon could be in their college paper... so now is probably a good time to follow up on that:

To get Sheldon in your college paper, just e-mail your head editor or features editor and request they add it in. Having your friends join in on the chorus will undoubtedly help: editors can be swayed just like any other human being. And, you can seal the deal with this: unlike professional publications, I give Sheldon to college papers for free. Because, c'mon, it's not like your college paper is swimmin' in funding.

Just have them e-mail me to get set up with a login to grab high-res versions of the daily strip.

Weekend Wrapup

Monday, August 27, 2007 - 07:31 AM

1.) If you missed it, the Saturday-Only Storyline had a nice, wordless moment this week.

2.) My favorite part about Sunday's strip? Sheldon collapsing on Legos. Speaking as someone who worked at Mattel for 8 years, I can tell you that Legos are probably the most amazing toy of the 20th Century. They will still be around long after Barbie, Hot Wheels, Cabbage Patch, and Transformers are gone. But if you've ever stepped on one of those puppies while barefoot -- it makes you want to curse the great nation of Denmark from which they sprung.

Legos: really awesome toy...really unthinkably painful to step on.
