Episode 713

Read the comic here.

Actually, most of the excuses Kent gave are valid. If you read the blog, you know I've been busy at conventions for the past few weeks - where I came down with a terrible case of ConCrud. And then had to go back to work anyway to face all the stuff I'd missed because I was off on vacation. And then the ConCrud won, and I went home sick on Friday, and spent the weekend trying to recover.

In other words: Real Life got in the way.

Despite still being sick, I did get a bit of work done on the strip over the weekend - we should be back to a nearly daily schedule now.

Thanks for your patience, and for those of you who took the time to write nasty blog comments about what I did choose to post? May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.

I would like to say that I have been reading your comic for over a year now (starting back at the beginning and catching up to the present) after someone sent me a link to a Lego church and that person had a link to your website. I find the comic funny, entertaining, and (when it was posted every week day) one of the very first things I would look at on the internet in the morning. :) It would give me something nice to look forward to before an annoying day at work (at home now, about to have a baby), so thank you. I know that it is a highly underappreciated job that you do creating this comic, but there are people who appreciate it like myself. :) Feel better soon!

Thanks. :) It's a sad truth that while people are quite likely to fire off an irate comment or email, they'll rarely take the same time to share the positives. And while I do like to take the occasional pot-shot at the naysayers, I do realize there's a decent sized group of folks who do just enjoy the comic for what it is.

And, at the end of the day, I take the time to put the strip together for people like you.

Thanks for reading.

Was the Chrome Vader a joke or did you finally get one?

Real life takes precedence -- glad to hear you're feeling better and squeezing in some time for the strip!

It takes money to produce this "comic"? I figured you were flush with cash after winning that big fancy award earlier this month.

You know I'm kidding of course. Hopefully the con crud will clear up soon.
