Oh man did tonight's comic take a long time to draw. Started at about 8PM and I'm only just finishing now. Still, I'm pretty happy with how it came out. Each panel is all hand-drawn, there is no Photoshop copy n' paste trickery whatsoever. I seem to be doing this a lot more lately, perhaps because my compositions are getting a little more complex. We shall see.

Tip T-shirts are in the mail, and should be to pretty much everywhere by the end of the week. Other shirts are still pending, but I should have more info very soon.

If you or someone you know is looking for a good Windows machine, I happen to have one up for auction here. I think it's a pretty good deal for a kick-ass system. A lot of the earlier QC strips were drawn on this machine, before I switched to Apple hardware, so I can vouch for its power and reliability. All the system specs are in the item description, so if this sounds like something you would like to buy, feel free to drop a bid. it would be neat if this went to a QC reader, I would probably throw in a couple silly extra things as well.

QC is hangin' tough over on Buzzcomix, it looks like we'll stay in the top 10 this month, which is super-cool. Some of my most vocal readers came to the strip via BCX, so I am glad that QC maintains a presence there. Thanks to everyone who votes!

If you do not own the new Franz Ferdinand album, I STRONGLY suggest you immediately go out and buy it (or order it on Amazon). Seriously rockin' stuff- think Parklife-era Blur, or Interpol with more of a swagger and less rigor mortis (John from Scary Go Round will probably hate me for comparing them to Interpol, hehe). Anyway it is a very fun listen, and definitely something that Britpop or Interpol (or hell, even Rolling Stones) fans would enjoy.

That's it for tonight. Time to go shut off my brain for a few hours. See you Wednesday!
