Ahhhhh! It’s here!
Yeah! Congratulations. Love it!
OMC – even my dog is excited!
Congratulations, Georgia! You’ve earned this ~ enjoy living your dream!
CONCATULATIONS GEORGIA!!! All your years of hard work have paid off! What a memorable day this is for you and your family!
Elvis is right. Trust no-one. Not even Elvis when he says … er …
CONGRATULATIONS! on being on the news paper today and i love how georgia changes her style of drawing because it gets better and clearer.
On the one hand, Puck is a lot easier to see like this. On the other, Lupin isn’t going to find it as easy to become invisible.
Yay! Congrats, Georgia!
Yay! A new strip! :) And I love all the intros from our main stars. Yes, Elvis, that raincoat is VERY subtle—ha!
I’m grinning ear to ear! Congrats Georgia! Way to go!
Congratulations Georgia, it’s been a rocky road for you and yours at times to reach this point, but it’s clear from your past work that your artistic talent and story telling has always been too great to keep confined to paper hidden away in a draw in a bureau. The day has finally arrived for the launch of your comic strip in newspapers, enjoy every minute of it, I know your fans will. :-)
Way to go, Georgia! We love you!
So glad that you have been acknowledged for your unique talent and comic strip.Elvis puts up a cynical front but he is a old softy.
So HAPPY for you, Georgia! Now the rest of the country gets to enjoy your work!
Congratulations Georgia!! The breaking news print version would go all around the world soon! Hope to read it here in India too! Love your work! Big Fan!
Time for me—and any other BCN fans in the Greater Seattle area—to wake up the Seattle ‘Times’ about what’s in their backyard that they’ve passed up. I thought they’d see the light sooner.
Better than CNN, MSNBC, Fox News…
Catnip for everyone! lol
Great work, Georgia. But Tommy would make a better weather cat since he’s mostly outdoors. And Elvis hardly ever ventures out. (Just saying)
Congrats, Georgia! Purrrrr . . . .
So excited for you Georgia. You’ve worked so hard for this and deserve every good thing coming your way. I’m going to the library to check all of the area newspapers and call the ones not carrying they boys! Let the champagne & catnip flow!
Yeah, and congrats Georgia! As far as trust, cats are far more trustworthy than Foxes.
I’m so happy for you, Georgia…finally, you get the attention you deserve! You work so hard just to put smiles on our faces each day…I hope you’re celebrating big time today :):)
Congratulations, Georgia! All your hard work is paying off. The cats look gorgeous in their more intense colours!
OMC, what a perfect intro to The Boys ! This is just beautiful, Georgia. We are so proud of you for hanging on there, and so very happy for your success. Just keep doing what you do, and the purrs will continue out here.
WTG Georgia! I get my paper’s eNewspaper and they screwed up on the comics page! They had a duplicate of their “Money” front page where the full page of comics are supposed to be, so I emailed them to fix it and hopefully I will see your comic there. If not, I will always find it here!
I am so happy for you, Georgia! The new format looks great, and I’m so proud! The boys are putting their best paws forward!
Hooray! The day has arrived! I am so happy for you, Georgia, that all worked out for you. Now you can focus on your family and your art instead of working in a bank!
Yea! Just got my morning paper here and YES, Breaking Cat News is in it! (The Daily News, Moscow ID). Way to go Georgia!
I know I’ll get comments that I’m a spoilsport or something, but I’m going to miss the longer stories.
Congratulations. Now that you have a wider audience may you reap the financial rewards you deserve. I have been enjoying the strip immensely even the reruns and hope you have continued success with the boys.
Best news crew I ever saw!!!
So it begins. Congratulations.
Congratulations Georgia! May the news crew have a long and successful cateer!
FYI, with all the fake news out there, BCN is the ONLY news show I watch! Congratulations Georgia!
Ta-daaaa!!! Congratulations, Georgia!
Congratulations again, Georgia! I’m wearing my BCN teeshirt (the “Ma’am?” “Ma’am?” one) in honor of your excellent day! Now, to get you into Canadian markets….
so deserved! Slainte, Georgia D!
ALLRIGHT!!!!! This is so cool!! :D
Wow news team (and Georgia) con-cat-ulations on this!!! Really great!!
Adding congratulations to the list Georgia, you made it :)
Congrats Georgia! You totally deserve this!
Followed this since the beginning, CONGRATULATIONS Georgia, on making it big time. Good luck in the future. The strips are FANTASTIC !! Thank you, and your family, for sharing with us.
Yeah! the big day has arrived :-) Congratulations Georgia!!!
Congratulations! I loved that Puck introduced himself while holding Buzzy Mouse! >^..^<
It’s wonderfully great news.
Congratulations, Georgia!! I can’t wait to see all the new adventures the gang covers!
YAAAAY! Congratulations, Georgia! I’m so excited!!!
And AWAAAAAAAY WE GO!!!!!!!
YEAH! BCN is in the Houston Chronicle. Thrilled.
Hooray! Congratulations, Georgia!
Yay Ms. Dunn, we’ve seen you in the funny papers!
I will add my congratulations, too! Hooray!!! And welcome back – you’ve been missed!
Are the strips still hand painted? I cannot tell… :(
Congratulations! So glad you get a taste of success in the joy you bring to all of us, your loyal flock!
66 comments, (so far). I would say that you have done yourself good.
I haven’t seen this many comments in a forum since before the change.
Thank you so, so much everyone for all of your kind words!!! This has been an amazing day, and I am happily overwhelmed with everyone’s excitement!!!
To folks who are worried about losing the longer stories—I hear you, I completely get that worry. Even people who are excited, you may also feel a little worried seeing changes or maybe expecting a series of one-offs forever now.
No. I promise, you ain’t seen nothing yet! I grew up on ‘Peanuts’ and ‘Calvin and Hobbes.’ This is one of the best mediums there is for hilarious, heartfelt extended stories.
I’ve here to do two things—drink tea and write awesome comics. AND I’M ALL OUT OF… Oh, never mind, the Man just put on another kettle.
But seriously… I’m here to do this right, and I’m not going to let you down. Long time readers, remember when months into the original run I sprung the first Christmas special on everyone? And everyone freaked out, and was so surprised an ongoing story was happening? And the comments flooded in: ‘What are these feelings?!’ ‘What is happening?!’ ‘Why do I suddenly care so much about fictional cats?!!’
Well, look at it this way: I’m about to do that to the entire country. And you’re in on it this time!
I promise: This is going to be awesome.
I am crazy exited for all of this!! I’m writing into August right now, and I’m already pretty much dying to share all of it with you. I cannot wait!
This is the Best News since Bob Dylan receiving the Nobel Prize for Literature! No other songwriter ever accomplished that. And just because no comic strip artist/writer has ever won it doesn’t mean it can’t happen. Go, Lady G! Go!
yay! I love this comic so much!
