I'm finished up action Bob's World scene in the next couple of weeks.  Despite what you the readers say I think humor is more popular and I enjoy the ability to jump on a topic or idea as I go. A usually and feedback or ideas is great.

Have a great holiday season.

OK true believers, What Elsewhere strips do you like the most? The everyday live stuff or the big adventure comics? Looking at old strips and am amazed at how good they were at doing nothing (But being funny at the same time).
