    One upping The Watterson, Troy?! Bold move. And very well done. Nice work.

    This is a very intelligent and meaningful cartoon, Troy. Knock it off.

    One upping Bill? Noooooo, nooo. I appreciate the comment though. Mr. Watterson hasn’t drawn a new toon in 18 years and still has 200,000+ subscribers her on Gocomics. I think I’d have to go to the Crossroads and sell my soul to do that. Maybe that’s what Mr. Watterson did. :)

    No, but we are getting closer and closer. We are finding them. Now it’s just a matter of time to send a Rover to one of them. I hope they do that during my life time. Can you imagine sending back photos from another planet with life on it?

    Thanks Tom. That’s a wonderful compliment. I needed it today. Been in the dumps the last couple of days as I’ve lost 5 subscribers.

    I’m always amazed at how people spot tiny details like that. :)

    I think we’re a penile planet, we’re actually aliens ourselves. We’re like the Australian of the Galaxy. :)

    Whoa, Troy. Don’t let a loss of subscribers get you down. It is going to happen a lot. In the beginning it bothered me when it used to happen to me, but after a while, I realized that it is not really that bad.
    You should place much more significance on the comments of your peers here on your site rather than subscribers. Overall, you will keep far more subscribers than you will lose. It is an ongoing process that may have nothing to do with whether the general public (in majority) enjoys seeing your cartoon. People come and people go, just like in all other aspects of life.
    And remember the most important thing of all… It’s only what I think that matters. (Just kidding)

    I read your strip every day! I really enjoy it, but I rarely comment.

    I don’t subscribe to ANY because I had two very bad experiences a couple years back when I did. I know “numbers” are important, but they aren’t everything!!

    @Tame

    LOL, yes, Tom, only what you think matters. :) I completely agree. Thanks for the kind words. I will try to quit worrying about the subscriber count. I was just trying to use it as a gauge of whether I’m doing OK or not.

    Wow, everyday!!! Cool, thank you Molly. That’s too bad that you had some bad experiences. It should be nothin’ but fun here at Gocomics. I will keep on keepin’. Thank you.
