The Long Wait

The Long Wait published on 5 Comments on The Long Wait

Follow us on Facebook and Bill Murray will come to your house and offer to shovel your walk.  If you share our comics with your friends, then apparently he’ll do it and not just steal your snow-shovel

That’s what I’ve heard anyway.  I may have been misinformed.

If you’re not a gamer here’s a comic from our archive to cheer up your Thursday, “When the Wife’s Away.”

This has been a really good time for us here at Unicorn Soup.  As you know we got nominated for a spot on Kotaku’s Sunday Comics page.  Well fans the news is we didn’t win a spot–I call it “news” rather than “bad news,” because I don’t think there was anyway that the nomination could have turned-out badly for us.

Would it have been nice to win? Certainly, but we gained a lot from the experience. Here’s a quick list:

  1. We got a nice bump in our readership, and hopefully picked up a few more regular readers.
  2. People on Kotaku actually said complementary things about our strip–this from one of the snarkiest collection of trolls on the internet.
  3. It really is flattering to have been nominated alongside the biggest and most popular comics on the planet.  Ego boost!

Sincere thanks from Jim and I to everyone who voted for us, posted our strip, and worked to get the word out.  It’s humbling to have people appreciate and believe in your work.

Thank you!


PS  If you’re in a holiday mood you’ll probably enjoy this from our archive, “The Gift that Keeps on Giving.”  In a related story ,I bought my 19 month old son every Lord of the Rings themed Lego in existence. Happy Thursday!


I don’t really believe Kotaku commenters are particularly snarky; I have seen far worse.

I voted for you at least twice, so is it okay if I feel all defeated and stuff?

I almost bought all of the LOTR sets. Almost. I couldn’t really buy them for my daughter, you see, because she has a tendency to lose pieces, and I COULD NOT ALLOW THAT. So I almost bought them for myself, but didn’t. They were even on sale as an entire set at one point on and I almost regret not buying them then. Almost.
