You may have noticed that we have a new sponsor this week - the awesome Joe and Monkey.

Now, normally this would be cause to celebrate all on it's own. But our good friend Zach Miller pulled a bait-and-switch on us. A very awesome bait-and-switch!

For the entire month of January, the erstwhile original punk rock gangsta of web comics Mitch Clem is running the show at Joe and Monkey!

You might remember Mitch from such previous web comic hits as Nothing Nice to Say and Barrett's Lament. And if you don't, it's time to make yourself familiar.

All of this awesomeness is leading up to the ultimate in awesome. The return of Clem to his own full-time gig, The Coffee Achievers in February. Who says winter has to suck!

So if you want to see if Mitch still has the mojo, check out Joe and Monkey for his triumphant return to web comics!

By the by, besides the current column sponsorship, all of the advertising spots are available for purchase. If you're interested in putting your site in front of a bunch of people for the New Year, now's the time to come aboard. I'm making a concentrated effort to re-introduce Theater Hopper to the web comic community, so I'll be stirring up a lot of press that will hopefully draw traffic here.
