Sunday, July 24,
Today is West of Bathurst's fifth birthday, and
therefore, I have done you an extra panel featuring me looking
grumpy in front of a brick wall.* If you haven't seen the big
Saturday comic yet, click on "Previous."
Hurrah for five years of procrastination, panic, ambiguous
fantastic elements, and angst. Please consider saying happy
birthday to the comic by putting a few bucks in the Clarion Hat.
If you don't want to give money to the nice sci-fi people,
perhaps you could send someone a link to the comic...or post the
link in your blog...or create a West of Bathurst TV Tropes entry...or
tweet something...or anything like that. My comic would like
not to feel lonely on its special day.
*If you are a relatively new reader, you may not know about
the bricks. I haven't been drawing them as much lately,
partly because Davies doesn't feature as a setting as much as it
used to and partly because bricks are time-consuming to draw.
I used to rant about bricks a lot. I do still stick 'em
in when I can, however.
Re. the write-a-thon: I have printed off my 364-page
manuscript, and I must now plough through it once more. I
can't quite figure out why Word Perfect has spontaneously decided
that p. 180 should actually be called p. 99, but then, computers
bewilder and horrify me. Everything will be much, much worse
if I ever open the document in Word.
