Although Ocean’s 12 is probably the least creative title to a movie sequel since Analyze That, I’m excited to see it when it comes out on Friday. Heck, even my PARENTS and my IN-LAWS are excited to see it. We saw both sets of parents this weekend and separately they asked me if it was coming out soon.

I think I’m probably a fan of the series because it has a very light retro feel and isn’t quite as morose as most caper flicks seem to be these days. No one dies. There are no gunfights. Just smart people speaking sharp dialogue and outwitting each other. It’s a fabulous concept.

I’m kind of monkeying with the idea of taking today’s strip and stretching it out into a week-long story arc. I don’t know if that means three days or five days – if I manage to stretch it out at all. I’ll be honest; I don’t have any ideas down on paper. But I can clearly see an opportunity to have a little fun with things. If you have any thoughts, leave them in the THorum.

Speaking of the THorum, I finally penned the holiday-themed artwork that one lucky participant will receive in our first-annual gift exchange. I thought you might get a kick out of it, so I decided to post it to today’s blog:

Buried by envelopes!

I think the opportunity has passed to submit your name to the gift exchange, but I’ll probably take some time soon to color this in and offer it as the wallpaper for the Donation incentive. I’ve been meaning to update that for a LONG ass time!

Also keep in mind that this week is the last to get a pre-order in for our newest shirts, baby doll and hoodies available in the store. December 10 is the cut off date. After that, you’ll have to wait a few weeks before I put them up for sale again. Place your pre-order now!

Last bit of site news I’ll mention, you’ve probably noticed the new round of sponsors on the front page and would like to know more about them!

Hypocritical Hero is a marvelous manga-style black and white comic just getting its start. It’s clear that there is a larger story being told here, so now is a good opportunity to get in on the ground floor!

O’Deer Comics is a frequent sponsor and a great comic to boot. Normally the comic is about what Santa’s reindeer do the rest of the year. But now that the big day is approaching, how do they prepare? Read O’Deer Comics to find out.

Our last sponsor is also a recent newcomer to the web comic scene. Kendara is a fantasy/adventure comic taking place in 1553!

So as you can see, we’ve assembled a very eclectic group of new comics for you to check out. So do yourself a favor and spread a little love. Investigate these great, new comics!
