It's official: new test comics

Beginning Monday you'll see "Candorville" and "Daddy's Home" in the test center.

I'm shortening the tests to 1 month. 2 months was OK, and 3 was definitely too long. I get most of the feedback in the first 4 weeks, so I'll stick to a month. Don't be shy in sharing your thoughts - here or via e-mail (

Whew! Not enough laughs of recent

Wow. Nearly 2 months since I last posted. Time flies when ... Well, I guess time just flies.

Anyway, I'm settling in at this new desk, in this new job, at this new computer, on this new computer system.

My goal is to resume posting, sharing funnies and news of the funnies. We need humor in our lives, gosh darnit!

John Matthews of Universal Press Syndicate stopped by yesterday on his swing through the Rocky Mountain states. John is always good for a laugh (I say that in the most sincere way). He dropped off new packets of "Cul de Sac" and "The Argyle Sweater," which I still enjoy.

He said I can add "The Argyle Sweater" to the Test Center. I think you'll like it. We shared a few here on the blog a while back. Look for that as soon as I pick another panel strip to test.

And I need to continue to share "Cul de Sac," because I think it's a great strip. Not for everyone, but what great strips are?

Brian Patten over at the Washington Post Writers Group says I can test "Candorville." I hope to start that Monday. I'll see if Creators will allow us to check out "Daddy's Home." After all the hubbub here on the blog, we'll see what other readers think of it.

Gotta jet. More later.
