– We’re back to normal sized strips after the 3 part Mother story. With all the chomping I don’t know if anyone even noticed that I had switched to full sized pages! Anyway. that was a hard arc to draw, and I’m glad you guys stuck around for it. I hope that by the end of the season you’ll agree that it was worth it.

– We hit our second stretch goal late last night, which means that the book will now include 2 extra three page comic strips, one featuring Jake and the other starring Charles the Fish Scientist! We’re actually now less than $800 from our next goal, which is another three page strip  by me and a brand new 6 page comic featuring the Pirates by Patrick Devine! We’ve still got 7 days to make it happen! Remember, the deal was that for every extra $1000 I’d do a new 3 page strip, with extra bonus rewards at $15,000, $18,000 and $23,000. I doubt we’ll make it to $23,000, but we’ll certainly do $15,000, and e might make it to $18,000 if we try hard. That would be a total of 24 extra pages of comics in the book! Awesome!

– The art contest is over, and here are the all the submissions! Every single one of these is great, and I’m really glad you guys took the time to send them in. Thanks! I’ve chosen a top 3 to appear in the Season 2 book, and a favorite to get a free copy of the book! I’ve decided that if I have room in the book I’ll be including as many of the rest as I can fit it. Hopefully all of them, but we’ll see. Again, thank you all so much! If you’d like me to list your site next to your image (or lcredit your image to a different name) please let me know! Oh, you can click on each image to see larger versions!
