Daniel and I will be attending the Rock’n Comic Con 2010 at the Pasadena Convention Center, tomorrow, Saturday, May 29. Because of that, we may not be able to get back in time to put up tomorrow night’s (Sunday’s) Quillian. If we end up being more than four hours late, we’ll move the update to Sunday Night/Monday instead of a Beastly Thoughts update and we’ll put up a sketch or a Beastly Thoughts for the Saturday Night/Sunday post.
Clear! (12,000 volts surge through the cartoonist’s heart.)
Anyway, if you’re in the area, stop by the con. We’ll probably be hanging out near Scott Shaw!’s booth for a bit and we will definitely be attending his Oddball Comics lecture at 3 p.m. See you there!
Sunday topped last Thursday’s comic for page views with over 9000! This is good. Now if we can just start earning some money off of this. The Google ads are bringing in an average of about $1.40 a day, all of which is going into our own advertising. I hate to say this but there will be more ads, soon. There’s also now a donation box, courtesy of PayPal if anyone feels like contributing.
We are planning to have goodies, t-shirts for sure, and a comic, probably this fall. Maybe some posters. Daniel is experimenting with coloring photostats of the comics and we may put those pages up as a donation premium, perhaps. Or a screensaver? It is true that Daniel can’t do much more than two-pages a week without some money coming in.
I’m going to put the offer to sell original art back up next week. If you’re interested in that, please keep an eye out for it. Thanks.
May 6, 2010 we had about 9000 pages viewed on the site! 8800 if you go midnight to midnight, Eastern time, or 9500 if you use Pacific time. And already today, we’re getting close to 4500!
I guess the site is really taking off, so we have to start thinking about things like T-shirts and other goodies so we can keep on doing this. Is there any panel in particular that someone would want to see a t-shirt version of?
