We’re One Year Old!

Hey everyone, it’s our first birthday!

As anyone who was present at my Bar Mitzvah will gladly confirm, I’m not one for giving speeches on these sorts of occasions, so I just wanted to thank everyone who has helped us stay more or less afloat over the course of this past year.

Mari NaomiThanks first off to our team of freelancers, who, in spite of the massive sums of money that we shower them with, have never let their talent go to their heads. As I’ve learned the hard way, time and time again, good writers are hard to come by, and even harder to keep.

Thanks to our fellow passengers on this crazy comic blogosphere rocketship. Your constant linkage helps hyper-inflate our self-importance to legendary proportions.

Thanks to everyone at the publishing houses who help us find things to write about. Thanks also to all of the artists and writers who have been incredibly helpful and candid during our interviews, and largely forgiving when haste or faulty recording equipment results in an egregious misquotes.

Thanks most of all to our incredibly loyal readers. Your eyeballs and heartfelt feedback helps us get out of bed in the morning—or at least makes us feel a little bit guiltier when we sleep in too late.

I’m going to cut it off here. If this were some self-aggrandizing awards ceremony (which, I suppose, in a way it sort of is), the music would have no doubt commenced to drown me out by now. But thanks again to everyone who has helped the site succeed better that I could have possibly imagined in this hard-knock world that is comics blogging, now let’s all get hammered on strained peas and powdered formula.

PS, thanks to Jeffrey Brown and Mari Naomi for the birthday art!
