Getting a better handle on the forums: As part of the 20+ site prep, we've been doing some way overdue improvements and maintenance to the forums. Today, the dev team put in some new anti-spambot measures, added strikethrough and spoiler code to posts, and created a support thread for bug reporting. Most importantly, we removed the "when were you born" question from the forums sign-up process. Anybody who was not able to log in (because you could not prove you were at least 13) should now be able to re-send their confirmation email and activate their account at Sluggy.net. This will be the only username and login you need for the new website, and the forums will stay essentially the same as they are.

And the link to the support thread is http://www.sluggy.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=95899

This is technically only half the comic I intended for today, but my work-speed was grinding to a halt and I was burning out. So I apologize that this is only half the intended comic. I don’t think this is a good solution, only better than running a filler comic mid-fall.

On “Sami” and “Urch”: Congratulations to Samantha and “Person Known Only As Urchin!” Samantha won our Dragon*Con SBG Sluggy Cameo contest in 2007 and it's taken THIS LONG for me to figure out a glorious way to kill her off. Similar to Thalia and Clint, Samantha wanted to gift the cameo to her friend Urchin and I decided (with her permission) I'd cameo them both.  Wait a minute! They're not dead yet! Maybe in a twist they'll survive! Tune in tomorrow to find out!

The original version of the strip had the fish in the last panel singing “Swimming, swimming, keep on swimming, keep on swimming…” But I thought even if you’ve SEEN “Finding Nemo” you still might not get it. And no, the fish is not a reoccurring sentient new character. If fact, if I wasn’t racing the clock (and losing), I might have cut the last panel completely. Anywho, congratulations again to our cameo winners, and happy Friday the 13th everybody!

I liked the Watchmen movie! So sue me! I'm sure I'll get this out of my system soon.
