First Previous Next Last

The fifth-anniversary panel still exists; if you want to see it, click here. It will also be available via the Archive page and the Miscellaneous page.

It should also be noted that a WoB reader who goes by the Internet moniker of Earthgirl has gone and created a brilliant West of Bathurst TV Tropes page for the comic's birthday. Go ahead and contribute if you like. Tropes are fun. And thank you very much, Earthgirl.


$666.66! As per the message below, which I don't have time to change just now, there will be an extra Casey panel presently.

Yes, it's true: $111.66 was donated just yesterday. Some explanation is probably warranted. Part of the donation was made by someone who donated before; however, PayPal apparently decided to withdraw his contribution spontaneously. He was understandably confused by this and redonated yesterday. Please be wary when using PayPal; it does weird stuff sometimes. Luckily, there are ways of donating that bypass PayPal entirely.

The other donation was for $66.66, and it came along with a note explaining that I had, in fact, now sold my soul. I cannot name the donor, as he/she seems to wish to be anonymous (as far as I know), but I can say that this person has now donated twice and has contributed a total of $170.93, meaning that he/she (I do know his/her gender, but I am being mysterious) is almost entirely responsible for commissioning seven of those extra comics. I would like to thank all the donors, but this one especially; that's some extraordinary generosity there.

SPONTANEOUS CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY: If we do happen to hit exactly $666 at any point (or, I suppose, $666.66, since that would just be cool), I shall draw a bonus colour panel involving Casey. We don't have to stop at $666; the donationmeter just has to say "666" or "666.66," however briefly. We now have exactly $30 left to go before we hit this number.

Here's another thing: Clarion doesn't give us donor contact information, but if you would like me to send you a special WoB-themed thank-you card (with Marie on the front and a doodle inside), just send your mailing address to kmaaren(at)gmail(dot)com. I may procrastinate on the thank-you cards because that is just the way I roll, but you will get yours eventually.

Incidentally, the lady who tallies the Clarion donations has called you all "rock stars," and I agree.

I am slightly less of a rock star. I did not have time for my story yesterday. Stupid, stupid marking.
