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.
Originally aired 1/03/05: This is where it's all explained. Seamus is in another one of the same situations he's been in time and time again - he's in love with a woman who doesn't quite feel the same way. Whether Elaine was hung up over someone else or not was never determined - but this time, he knows what the source of that problem is, and he's unwilling to take it any further. The difference between Seamus and Angela is this - he cannot do what she is doing. She's dating him and in the meantime hoping that Kestrel will one day turn around and want to be with her - and he's dating her and hoping that one day she will turn around and want to be with him just as much as he wants to be with her. Once he'd realized the parallels, he decided he couldn't keep himself in that situation any longer - hell he spent years being Elaine's doormat and finally realizing that's what he was doing. It didn't take as long this time around, but he's in the same pattern all over again - and this time he's doing the correct thing and not staying in a relationship that isn't reciprocated. As for telling Kestrel about all of this - maybe he was right, maybe he was wrong, that's up to the individual reader to decide, but he can at least be at peace with the fact that he's told the truth and gotten things out in the open, instead of letting them rot away forever. The fact that he's done so right as Kestrel is completely stressed out about moving and leaving her friends behind and starting a new life, thus adding one more thing to the already overwhelming pile of things she has to think about and deal with, doesn't occur to him.
