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 09/24/03: Man, I miss Zot. Zot was my kitty, I got her under very, very different circumstances than those shown in the comic - I already had this huge mouthy siamese named Caleb, who while endearing and beautiful was also one of the stupidest cats I'd ever owned, and my roommates and I got a call from a friend. Said friend tells us that his girlfriend was working at her convenience store job, and some kid came into the store with two kittens shoved in his POCKETS. Mind you this is the middle of the summer, it's hot enough already, and his girlfriend was horrified at this kid, so she offered him five bucks for the kittens. Said child had little concept of anything beyond 'oh money is good' and handed the kittens over. However, as our friend related, his girlfriend was not allowed to have pets in her home, and he wondered if we would be kind enough to watch the little buggers "just until we find someone to take them." yeah since we were all a bunch of suckers for critters we said okay. It wasn't until he showed up at our door with the kittens that we realized just what he had pawned off on us - the two kittens had barely opened their eyes and were roughly the size of the palm of my hand. I don't have big hands. The real-life Felix could hold both of them in one hand. Our friend hurriedly mentioned something about probably having to bottle feed them and made his exit, and after a trip to the local PetSmart and a discussion with a helpful employee we realized that the little guys were so young that we were going to have to bottle feed them every few hours for the next week to two weeks. By the time we got done doing so, Caleb the idiot had decided he was mom, and the kittens decided WE were mom, and were thus christened Zot and Orb, and we informed our friend that we'd be keeping the kittens - which he'd probably planned on all along, the little snot.
