Monday's News 'n Notes

Sunday, October 19, 2008 - 09:55 PM

1.) For all of you who liked the Dubai storyline from a few weeks ago, I thought I'd share this little news item.

2.) Sheldonista Kirsten C. sent in a neat shot of her Sunday Original Art all framed up. I always love to see 'em in their final state...

2.) At Baltimore Comic-Con, Sheldonista Kit Q. couldn't make it to the show, so she sent along a friend with a note asking if I'd draw "the Christmas porpoise" in her book. I knew right away what she wanted: It's one of my favorite bits of weirdness from the archives.

Anyway, Kit followed up by sending me a shot of her Sheldon collection:

...not only does Kit have all the books, she's even assembled her Ty pug, duck, and lizard plushes like the guys in the strip when they're playing Rex Chestington. I love it, Kit!

Thank you for the book stores!

I wanted to thank everyone who sent in their favorite independent bookstores. Because of your help, we were able to add about 220 stores who might welcome "Sheldon" on their shelves. Stores all around the U.S. and Canada, and even some overseas. Your local viewpoint is invaluable in spotting stores that would work -- thank you for that!

As promised, I'm going to be sending some new desktops to folks who sent in suggestions. Those should be going out this week.
