Looking forward to another 3K+ days @ the new site. Congrats, Mike. (And just when your links started working for me again.)

David

So where do we look for you? I've bounced around the site there for 10-15 minutes, but don't see anything... will you just be a post (everyday) in the comic strips feed section?

Bill Williamson

I found you on the new site first try and I hope you will be as easy to find tomorrow. I will persevere if you are a little harder to find than a link on m bookmarks bar. I like what you say and how you say it. I hope you like your new home.

Re-doing settings as soon as I finish typing. Wouldn't want to miss out on CSotD!

Abbot of Unreason

Is there a way for the new place to feed rss?

Mike Peterson

Headline will always start CSotD and I'll ask about RSS feed, but you'd have to take the whole site's feed and not just mine.

The whole site is quite interesting, mind you, and worth scrolling through to see what's new.

Brian Fies

Wonderful! Best for you is probably not having to mess with the website maintenance stuff anymore. I look forward to reading you every morning over yonder.

They should have a CSOTD header at top, or at least in the pull-down "See All Topics" menu. Talk to DD or John Glynn about that.....

Enjoy your regular and surely immense income stream!

This is what happens when I step away from the computer briefly. Everybody changes their URL. See you on the other side.

What's so funny?

  • I read some 175 or more comics a day. Each day, I post a strip or two here that made me laugh, made me think or impressed me with its artistry. It's my hope that you'll see some new strips here and decide to follow that artist's work, and perhaps even to support that work by purchasing a collection of strips. But, mostly, I hope you'll find this a place to get a laugh or share a thought each day. After all, comic strips are a very demanding art form, but the ultimate point of all that work and all those deadlines is to give readers a little pleasure each day. If you find a comic hard to read, clicking on it will open a slightly larger version. (You may find that right-clicking and opening in a new tab produces a better result.) All comics here are copyrighted by their creators. -- Mike Peterson

The Prime Directive

  • The Prime Directive is that we don't single out comics for snark and abuse. This may change once I've won a couple of Pulitzers and a Reuben or two.

Independent publishers

  • Independent comic collections
    Not all cartoonists market their collections through Amazon. Here's where cartoonists can list their independently published, and marketed, collections and where fans can find, and buy, them.

Blog Roll

  • Comics Worth Reading
    Independent Opinions by Johanna Draper Carlson and friends News and reviews of graphic novels, manga, comic books, and related subjects
  • Comic Riffs
    Michael Cavna's Washington Post column on comics and related media news.
  • Mike Lynch Cartoons
    Cartoonist Mike Lynch's blog: Fascinating archival stuff he's found and scanned, tips on how cartooning really works and progress reports on his garden (in season).
  • The Comics Reporter
    Tom Spurgeon's Web site of comics news, reviews, interviews and commentary
  • Cartoon Movement
    An international site with sociopolitical cartoons from around the world, curated by Dutch cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards. A real mix of impressionistic panels and short-form graphic journalism.
  • Africartoons
    Cartoons from across Africa, which has an extremely lively cartooning culture. Most of the material requires you to be on top of African current events and political personalities, but even when you're not sure of the specifics, there's some creative stuff to envy in the lively nature of the art form as practiced there.

GoComics.com

  • GoComics.com
    Universal Press Syndicate's page. You can click on each strip and read for free, but for $11.88 a year, you can create your own page of strips and also avoid pop-ups. It's worth it.

Comics Kingdom

  • Comics Kingdom
    King Features' site, with free comics if you don't mind a truncated service, or a very good paid site for $20 a year. Some of the benefits, including Vintage strips, require that paid subscription. It's worth it.
