in Six Things
Well I for one happen to be a big fan of your strip, including the new ones. So there.
Thanks! I always appreciate it when people step up when I'm fishing for compliments. But I really am only reporting what I read.
I'll get the cliche over with, so we all won't have to wait any more:
"You're good enough, you're smart enough, and, doggonit, people like you!"
I hate myself for writing that.
This was nice, but your early stuff was funnier.
Frankly, it's all been downhill since the Mystery Pages.
Your stuff, especially your "Six Things" cartoon stuff, doesn't suck. In fact, I wish you cartooned for NYer so they'd pay you big bucks and their magazine wouldn't suck quite a badly as its current incarnation does. But then you'd be a big shot and probably quit blogging to appear on Regis and Kelly and like that. And your cartooning might start to slip and then you'd suck just like NYer. Maybe it's better like this. After all, it's all about me, anyway....
I think some of our earlier comments sniping at your work were better than the criticism now.
oh #5..... we all do it. I continue to love your strip, read it every day, and would actually pay money for products associated with Six Things (anthology, t-shirt anyone...?). You dont suck. The cool thing is, you have your blog readers to affirm you too
For the record, I would consider purchasing a T-shirt of panel 1 for the girlfriend. Then I would remember that she blames me for pointing out to her the existence of Luxor: Zuma II and forcing her to fall behind in her elaborately planned schedule and would decide that perhaps being suffocated with a (albeit amusing) T-shirt isn't how I would like to go.
I would buy a six things t-shirt. Especially if it were funnier. You know, like your early stuff.
P.S. We just finished moving, and I discovered my old copies of "Get to Work" and "Bad Time".
P.P.S. I still have your birthday present, but now it is packed away in a box somewhere, not just out in the open like some 15 year old scripts.
I think you should sell sets of six T-shirts, each depicting one thing. Then if you want to read the whole comic, you have to find the whole set of six people that are collectively wearing the strip. Or you could wear a different shirt every day, wearing a six-things strip over the course of a week, with Sundays off.
I'm a dedicated fan and I haven't even read the earlier stuff!
And what the hell does zucchinigirl know??
She sounds like a self absorbed malcontent, just like the rest of today's newer generations!
