I think we should all reenact the 3000th strip at your booth and take pictures. Then we will have a record of both events for posterity!
And, in the kind of awesome coincidence that you could never plan, that day will also be the first day of San Diego Comic-Con!
So let me put it to you guys: How should we celebrate it? What should we do? Comment below and chime in!
I think you should celebrate by gaining 3,000 new readers at Comic-Con so we can increase the readership of this awesome comic!
I personally would love for the 3,000th comic to contain the entire cast of Sheldon, just so we can see all of the building blocks which have made such a strong foundation for this strip.
I recommend flexin' the ol' creative muscles. Make somethin' a bit big and epic- moreso than normal anyway. Get it framed very nicely and then auction it off for charity. That's my idea, anyway!
Create buzz at the con. Make a big sign and sell raffle tickets to win strip number 3,000, and maybe a selection of books.
And I will say it; "Congratulations on reaching 3,000 strips. It is an incredible feat!"
There, now you can use my quote in the big sign that you hang at your booth
I'm sure whatever you do is going to be awesome and high-five worthy, but I wouldn't mind seeing another Dilly Duck strip. I quite enjoy when you experiment with different styles.
OMG, I totally *love* lealormyst's, Nuurgle's, AND ln569's ideas! jdkt's idea of an auction is good, too, but I like ln569's idea better. All of these ideas make me wish I could be there SO MUCH! I'm sending someone to buy the Drive book for me, though!
It should probably be a joyous occasion, but perhaps a hint at what happened to/where are Sheldon's parents? I'd love to see that elaborated on, but also feel like it would be kind of depressing.
Barring that, something nerdy involving the number 3000 would also work. :)
How should we celebrate it? What should we do?
Oh come on, you gave the answer to this and all questions already during the past years: WWAKD? :)
I would be happy about a cartoon about yourself though.
I must admit, that a Drive/Sheldon crossover, or a week of them, would be exceedingly cool.
If we can't have the open bar and orgy, that is. ;-)
Have all your loyal fans sign in
and ????, until your "hits" reach 3,000, that person will receive your original drawing of that 3,000th strip! Hi from your Pennsylania cousin.
