All A* daily comics and art gallery images are now available as hand-signed prints! That's right, I will now whip up the daily comic or gallery image of your choice as a printable graphic file, tote it over to the printers', have them print it up as a nice 8.5" x 11" glossy on heavy "cardstock" paper, sign it just for you with a fancy-schmancy metallic silver pen, run it over to the post office, pop it in a Priority Mail envelope, and whisk it off to you post-haste, pretty much anywhere in the world! Just look for the "buy hand-signed print" link next to your favorite A* images.
So that's my excuse for not actually having any new comics for you this afternoon (I did upload one at about 3:00am tod-- err, Friday morning, but that's not really the spirit of the "daily" idea, I know >_<). I fully intended to have time to squeeze out at least ONE new comic today, buuuut Perl scripting pretty much always ends up taking twice as long as I figure it will (you'd have thought I'd have learned this lesson from game development =p). The art galleries have a slick(er) new layout and should be easier to browse in the new print-enabled system, and you can access them directly from the episode list page
now, which also got a layout upgrade.
By the way, if you've never signed anything with a metallic silver pen, I urge you to try it: it is way fun and instantly makes you feel like an unqualified rock star. Thanks to Walrus and surplus MXO boxes for teaching me this guilty pleasure.
