Station V3: The Birthday Cake!
I’m not sure if it counts as fan art or dessert (or both?), but I’d like to thank my brother Chris for making this for my birthday yesterday!
(And it tasted good, too!)
In yesterday’s strip (3/20), a rumormonger added two and two to get 4,376. I had considered several other numbers – like 22, for example – before deciding on a number that included the answer and the phone exchange of somewhere I used to live. Coincidentally, as pointed out by a reader, the asteroid 4376 Shigemori was discovered on 3/20/1987 – 22 years ago. Maybe I meant to do that?
And in other non-Station V3 webcomic news:
Robert Cook’s comic The Mansion of E recently hit the 2,000 strip mark. Congratulations, Robert!
While there haven’t been any new episodes of PodWarp 1999 uploaded since January, it’s not dead yet! There are more episodes on the way. If you have any suggestions for a future episode, you can post them on the PodWarp forum. Meanwhile, Mark Mekkes and I were among the people on the latest live episode of The Gigcast.
There’s a new webcomic rating site that started up recently – Is It Funny Today? Instead of voting for a site as a whole, you see individual strips, and vote on whether not you think they’re funny. You can vote from a list, or browse through random strips. Station V3 is one of the comics on their list (in the story comics section), so if you think any of the strips on their list are funny (today and the past few days), you can vote yes. Or if not, vote no! (I’m trying for “yes,” of course, but there’s always a chance my “yes” is someone else’s “definitely not.”)
And since I titled this post “New Sites and Things,” here are two Things: an alternate, more stand-alone version of today’s strip up as the new voting bonus at TopWebcomics, and a bad translation of today’s strip up at buzzComix!
