Welcome to Monday's TOGM!

Very excited to go check out a house tomorrow... I'm praying to the housing gods for this one.. It's pretty far from where I work right now, but I think that it would be a godsend for our family...

I was seriously considering doing an artist table for Fan Expo in Artist Alley, but I'm thinking that maybe I'll just order up a TOGM shirt and go as a spectator for the first year... I would have liked to get a table, but I'm not sure it's an expense we can afford right now.

I'd like to solicit for those guest strips... It probably wont be used for a while, but it would be awfully nice if we are moving to have a weeks worth of content to put up for people to check out. If you're interested, we'd love to see them :)

Have a good week!

He's kinda cute, for a rotting corpse.

And good luck with the house/move.

You have the Wicked Witch as your icon.. Your idea of attractive might be a little ... odd :)

Actually, that avatar is kind of cute :) Is she the lady who played her in Wicked?

how did "John" get up like that..? O.O

oh, and for the "artist table"... (it's for a comic convention or something like that right?) i recommend you to not get one (yet) if you really cant afford it like you said. draw and write more TOGM first so you can be mobbed by more fans when you do get enough for your table>.O

We were seriously considering bringing promo material for other comics as well :) But thank you for the suggestion...

I'm thinking he lifted himself up on one side and then braced against the other... Though, having worked in a warehouse, I would say that he probably had more trouble in not having the boxes fall on him sooner :)

Wish I could help with the fan art, but in the middle of a move myself, so I can surely commiserate!

Oh, we'll have time ;) Just soliciting early before we need it, with the understanding that I know we probably will ;)

How is it going? Looking forward to you being back on the fun side of the world ;)

I bet he jumped up there all slow-like and matrixy...
Also I think there is no alarm, the crates are just full of alarm-clocks.

Bona fortuna with ze house.

At first I was like "Oh no! She figured it out!!" but now I'm thinking "Hmmm, maybe that -should- be what happened..."

Soooo if the entire future storyline is based on a warehouse full of alarm clocks, and the secrets and lies behind that fact, blame Effigy :D

I am loving all of the action in this comic lately! Who knew that John could pull off those moves? I wonder if Beth taught him a thing or two about self defense while he was there? lol Anyway, good luck and happy house hunting! :)

Wonder if I can get a TOGM T-shirt online :o

Yay Alicia! It is an awful lot like his mental image of the butt kicking he would have liked to do rather than fainting... I'm glad you noticed :D

Uhm... As for T-shirts, I'm still looking at it... I know that they charge a decent amount for the shirt / printing, and then I presume that they charge more for shipping... I'd like to make some, just because I think that we've got some sweet ideas for t-shirts that I'd like to have myself, but I want a solution that is good for the fans of the comic...

Right now I am considering looking to a local printer so that my costs are as minimal as possible, and see if I can arrange some deal with the local shipping company, and see if maybe I could manage to bring down the costs...

But the problem with that is that we'd probably have to do a certain amount to get any kind of deal... So we might be better off holding off until we get more readers so that we have a reasonable chance of breaking even...

One last alternative would be pre-order... Putting up a group of pictures and a poll with which one people would pre-order, select the winner and then make an order when we have sufficient numbers.

I would almost certainly buy a TOGMtSHIRT.

Pre-order sounds good to me :D

Running/walking really is quite dangerous. Anyone who does it extensively without training and proper supervision becomes extremely injury prone.

Yeah, it sounds silly, but it's actually true. :P
