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 6/04/04: I still get emails asking what happened to Felix's daughter, and Julie, and what happened to Joshua - despite this comic. This one pretty much nails it on the head - yes, Felix still cares about Julie and his daughter, whoever she might be. Shannon still cares about Joshua, cares about him a lot. But here's the thing and it's said clear as day in the strip - you can beat yourself over the head for the rest of your life wondering and waiting, or you can take the knowledge that you did the best thing you knew to do at the time with the information you were given, and move on. Not FORGET, Felix still hasn't forgotten about his daughter, nor has Shannon forgotten about her son, but he is letting Shannon know that it is okay to let go. Joshua was left with a family that could and was taking very good care of him and loved him very much - and Shannon made the decison to leave that be. Good, bad, look at it however you want to look at it but the decision was made, and she could spend the rest of her life worrying herself into a husk over it, or she could say 'Okay, it was for the best' and move on. Felix says in the strip he's not hiding and if Julie or his daughter ever got in contact and wanted child support or anything else, he was right there for them - but there is no use in beating yourself up over a situation that happened years in the past. That's why you won't see what happened to Joshua or Julie or Felix's daughter - because for good or for bad, they've left that behind. I guess the same could apply to Becca as well. (No, her erstwhile appearance in S*P was not continuity, it was a joke. Cartoonists make those sometimes. Heh.)
ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NOTE: If you have been reading Something Positive, you may have noticed someone very familiar come into play these past few days. Other observant people may have noticed an addition to his cast page. For those that have questions (and I know you're out there my inbox is flooded what the hell), I have written a response to the majority of the questions and accusations and whatever else has been thrown my way over here in the livejournal community for your perusal, check it out if you're curious. Or if you're content with leaving the end of Queen of Wands as the end of Queen of Wands, that is peachy as well. Thanks!
