Just a note - if you ordered original art, please check your ebay feedback - if I've left you feedback, your order was shipped today. If I have NOT left you feedback, then I have not received payment from you yet, and your item will ship as soon as that occurs - thanks! I was reassured by the post office that all internation artwork should reach its destination before Christmas, for any international buyers that were concerned.

If you have made a paypal payment for artwork, and I have not left feedback for you, please contact me via Ebay - if you've mailed in a payment and you haven't been left feedback, I probably just haven't gotten it in the mail yet, and your artwork will ship as soon as I get it. Thanks guys!

Comic updates are on hold for the moment as I am currently in the process of relocating - I'm hoping to have everything moved over by this weekend. Thanks for your patience with the delays!


Warehouse 23 is now doing poster printing, and as a result they are now offering the 'Read' design in a gorgeous, full-color 11x17 poster on heavyweight paper. I just received my comps today and I couldn't be happier with them. You can access the Warehouse 23 store by clicking on the 'store' button, or by clicking on this link - go give it a look!

Old News:

That's all, folks. Thank you for reading!

If you're despondent over the lack of QoW, this news may cheer you - due to an overwhelmingly positive reader response, QoW will start again next Monday and re-run all the original strips, seven days a week, with commentary. That's right, if you so choose you'll get to read my babblings about what exactly went on with the strips, stuff that wasn't supposed to happen, ideas that were ditched, ideas that were never explored, the works. I realize it's not NEW strips, but I thought it would be fun to do while I work on putting out my next project. Speaking of the next project - I will be announcing it as soon as it's ready to go. Keep an eye on the website, or the LJ community, or the forum, as I'll be posting it all over the place once it's live.

For those looking for other strips to read, check out my links section, and also the Keenspot dropdown up in the corner has a ton of good reads on it as well.

Hi there! You are reading the Queen of Wands rapid-fire reruns, a seven-day a week run of QoW with commentary. Commentary on later strips will contain spoilers, so if you are a new reader and here for the first time, I suggest you take a trip to the beginning of the archives and give the comic a read-through spoiler-free before jumping into the commentary.
Originally aired 02/10/03: Oh Becca. You were the source of many confused and angered emails, so many times. Mostly over a latter storyline involving her that will be gotten into later in the commentary, but for now, Becca - I think everyone that has practiced Wicca or some 'alternative' form of religion has one. The one who takes things a little 'too' seriously, the one who decided that they are some sort of 'uber powerful gifted' badass that was secretly a child of Atlantis or a princess or a king or a whatever in a previous life. Why? I don't know - maybe it's because they think by throwing themselves in a constant state of 'peril', whether it be real or imaginary, they'll get the attention they want. Or maybe they just want to be special, unique, different, whatever. Who knows. But there's always a Becca lurking around every corner - a person who thinks they're the quintessial authority on everything you ever wanted to know about a subject, or at least wants to appear as such, even if that means making up bullshit for the general viewing audience that may or may not be bought into. Becca the character was, yes, once again based on someone I knew in real life - she wasn't a bad person, I still don't think she was a bad person, but the things she did to grab attention wherever she could were infuriating at the time, and now they just seem kind of sad. I'm not sure what's worse in this instance - that she felt it necessary to come up with these things when simply providing information and resources would have been enough to make anyone happy, or that there were people that whole-heartedly bit into her stories and incorporated themselves into them in an effort to either a: get on her good side, b: humor her, or c: be special as well. I can't really deny it, I was guilty of the same thing for a month or two until I realized that the land of delusion wasn't really someplace I wanted to call home.
