Just a note - if you ordered original art, please check your ebay feedback - if I've left you feedback, your order was shipped today. If I have NOT left you feedback, then I have not received payment from you yet, and your item will ship as soon as that occurs - thanks! I was reassured by the post office that all internation artwork should reach its destination before Christmas, for any international buyers that were concerned.

If you have made a paypal payment for artwork, and I have not left feedback for you, please contact me via Ebay - if you've mailed in a payment and you haven't been left feedback, I probably just haven't gotten it in the mail yet, and your artwork will ship as soon as I get it. Thanks guys!

Comic updates are on hold for the moment as I am currently in the process of relocating - I'm hoping to have everything moved over by this weekend. Thanks for your patience with the delays!


Warehouse 23 is now doing poster printing, and as a result they are now offering the 'Read' design in a gorgeous, full-color 11x17 poster on heavyweight paper. I just received my comps today and I couldn't be happier with them. You can access the Warehouse 23 store by clicking on the 'store' button, or by clicking on this link - go give it a look!

Old News:

That's all, folks. Thank you for reading!

If you're despondent over the lack of QoW, this news may cheer you - due to an overwhelmingly positive reader response, QoW will start again next Monday and re-run all the original strips, seven days a week, with commentary. That's right, if you so choose you'll get to read my babblings about what exactly went on with the strips, stuff that wasn't supposed to happen, ideas that were ditched, ideas that were never explored, the works. I realize it's not NEW strips, but I thought it would be fun to do while I work on putting out my next project. Speaking of the next project - I will be announcing it as soon as it's ready to go. Keep an eye on the website, or the LJ community, or the forum, as I'll be posting it all over the place once it's live.

For those looking for other strips to read, check out my links section, and also the Keenspot dropdown up in the corner has a ton of good reads on it as well.

Hi there! You are reading the Queen of Wands rapid-fire reruns, a seven-day a week run of QoW with commentary. Commentary on later strips will contain spoilers, so if you are a new reader and here for the first time, I suggest you take a trip to the beginning of the archives and give the comic a read-through spoiler-free before jumping into the commentary.
This marks the first strip in the Queen of Wands/Something Positive crossover. To see the corresponding S*P strip, click here
Originally aired 9/16/02: This is the start of the first crossover I had with Something Positive. The way this came about was pretty simple: I emailed Randy and mentioned that I was doing a comic that was in a similar vein as his, as far as age-of-characters and vaguely-reality-based went. Our humor was also fairly similar, although his comic's always been a little snarkier and meaner than mine was. I asked if he'd like to do a crossover, because I figured it would be fun - I didn't get the chance to do crossovers when I was doing Xenith, because it was a self-contained universe and a complete story, so I really wanted to try my hand at them with this comic. Randy asked what I had in mind, and I suggested that Choo-choo visit my strip, because it required little effort on his part and little effort on mine, and we didn't really have to do too much in the way of drawing each other's characters, PLUS it would involve Choo-choo Bear, a fan favorite at the time who hadn't really been in many of the strips lately at the point that I contacted him. He agreed, and we started this up. Some fans liked it, others didn't, but oy it pretty much changed a lot of how my strip was laid out, unintentionally. I love drawing Choo-choo.

Randy divulges: Originally aired 9/16/02: When Aeire first contacted me about a crossover, I was severely confused because I'd mixed up Xenith (her other, very fantasy based comic) with Queen of Wands. Of course, I could have also been confused because I was rather drunk that month. Anyway, I was insistant on doing a crossover that required next to no work on my part. In fact, this commentary requires more effort - and it's my fault for saying I'd do it.
