West of Bathurst 5th anniversary

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.

Panel 1: A cartoon version of Kari stands against a brick wall, glaring.

Kari [thinks]: ...Damn bricks.

Alt-Text: Ironically, this particular panel didn't take all that long to draw.
