Well, I’m back. I promised more news, and I’ve got more news. Ironically, this won’t be a mega-post like I originally envisioned.

I just wanted to make it public that Theater Hopper has been nominated for a couple of awards by the good folks sponsoring the Webcomic Choice Awards. We’re nominated in the categories of Best Hand-Drawn Comic and Best Webdesign.

Of course I couldn’t be more thrilled. I’m just happy for the recognition, so many thanks to those who filled in my name on the nomination ballot.

Voting for the general public won’t begin until all the nominees have been contacted and they verify the honor. I’m imagining it’ll be near the end of the month before things get into full-swing.

I’m not going to vote-whore, but I intend on promoting the WCA during the voting period. Once things get rolling, please think of us when casting your ballot. It would make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

Things are really shaping up for the big five-oh milestone on Friday. Geeze. 50 comics. I can’t believe it. I just started this up to see if I could do it. And now it looks like I’ve got an average of a couple hundred readers telling me to keep it up. You guys are the best. Seriously. If it weren’t for you, I’d quit. There’s no reason to throw all this creative effort into a void. I’m glad there is someone on the other side to provide a soft pillow for it to land on.

To celebrate this chapter of Theater Hopper history, I’ve made some plans for next week. There are going to be a few changes around the site. I’m going to be deleting a few things, adding some more cool things to replace them and… well… something big is planned for next week, so you gotta be sure to come back and check it out.

Lastly, I want to give a shout-out to Butah over at Hot Buttered Funk. He was kind enough to add me to his ever-growing cam-pic army. You can find me on page 8. Do some scrolling. You’ll find me at the bottom.

Butah was also cool enough to hook Theater Hopper up with a permanent link on his links page. I’m returning the favor by slapping this big ass banner here.

Hmm… I guess this post ended up being longer than I thought. Nuthin’ wrong with that!
