Does that include shipping?

Mike Peterson

Domestically, yes. Anyone overseas should ask.

Herman Roozen

How much for shipping to The Netherlands?

Mike Peterson

Yikes. Looks like another $23 would do it. But it's a very nice coffee mug.


I suspect the answer is "more money than you can poke a stick at, plus the stick",since that's the standard shipping rate, but what sort of price for Australia?

Allan Holtz

I'm persnickety about my coffee cups (12 oz. minimum is my decree), and the postage to Canada would put more money in the pockets of multinational government bureaucrats than yours. So send me a Paypal invoice for $30 and help me sleep at night knowing I did my part to keep the gears of your superb blog properly oiled.

As a daily blogger myself, but one who has the luxury of stacking up a month of posts in one feverish weekend bout of researching and writing if necessary, I say that what you do is patently impossible. You can't get up every morning and have something interesting, let alone coherent, to say. It just ain't human. So let me just state in closing that I welcome you from whatever strange planet you hail.

Best, Allan Holtz

I wonder how many people got the polo ponies reference... LOL

Would love to order one, but as noted the postage to Canada would wipe out any benefits. So look for a donation instead. I'd support this over NPR any day.

Mike Peterson

I don't know that there is a Paypal invoice, is there? I think you just go there and do it.

FWIW, I just sent a cup to BC for an additional $16. Only slightly over half the price of the mug. I send good vibes for free, however.

Love the website and have linked to it more than a few times.

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
    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.
