Site Update + Dead Roots!

Happy Halloween everyone! What are you dressing up as? (I am sadly dressing up as a cartoonist with deadlines and no time to make an awesome costume. Ah well.)

The blog is still currently on the old system, but you should notice some changes in the menu above, and if you poke around a bit you’ll see a new homepage, more information in the About section, a list of webcomics and books in the Comics section, and new work in the Gallery!
