Today's strip was brought to you by the good folks at Crotchley Labs, which we haven't seen in a while. (See three earlier strips, here: 1, 2, and 3).

I love the idea that, in the Sheldon universe, Crotchley Labs really did exist in the 1950's. It's a theme we might see more of in the strip someday.

Also! Peeps! I have yet to celebrate an Easter where *somebody* didn't bust out these chalkboard-tasting candy. And I never learn. Ever year I try one, and every year they taste like foot.

So here's hoping your Easter is a Peeps-free day!

Kind Words on "How To Make Webcomics"

Saturday, March 22, 2008 - 09:17 AM

Sheldonista Noah A. sent me in a kind little review blurb from the folks at Blue Line Pro (the company that makes all the page templates for comic books). Here's Robert Hickey from Blue Line:

"There's a new book out that everyone that is or wants to publish a comic or strip online needs to read and keep by their computer for reference. HOW TO MAKE WEBCOMICS by Brad Guigar, Dave Kellett, Scott Kurtz and Kris Straub. I got it on Wednesday and I'm 2/3 finished and it's amazing. I'm going back and rethinking every step of publishing on the web. The information rolls off the pages and every chapter is well planned and delivers a punch without intimidating you."

...coming from a company that traditionally deals with comic book supplies for print, that's kind words indeed!
