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 02/22/03: More people have asked about this...yes, this was based on real events. I don't really think that I need to go into too much detail, nor do I want to - but when you're young(ish), confused, not quite sure what your legal rights are, mostly broke and scared because people are throwing legal terms at you left and right, you fall apart. We didn't know what to do, I didn't, she didn't, real-life Felix certainly didn't, he was the youngest out of all of us, and we didn't really have anyone we could just go up to and say 'hey, here's what happened, what do we do now?'. I've gotten so many emails asking why didn't they do a or b or c or xyz, and the honest answer is they didn't know. We didn't know. That's all. Both in the comic and in real life, Shannon came to terms with it, we all did, and events worked out how they worked out. As for the people asking about how a parent could hold their kid (in this case, Felix's fiancee) 'against her will' - they were a very strict family with very high moral and religious values, she was in college, and she was very firmly under their thumb. It's one thing to say you will marry someone, it's another thing entirely to do it when you're young, in college, inexperienced, and in love, and to make the choice of alienating the family you've grown up with for good by running away to take a risk and do something you aren't certain is going to work out. She was either a: not THAT in love, or b: too scared to leave her parents. That's all I know.
