Today my new webcomic, Cleopatra in Spaaace, launched at the aptly named CleopatraInSpace.com. And I hope a lot my c&b readers will go and check it out and help support it and and comment and tell all their friends how much they love everything I do. Of course, if you don’t do any of this, that’s fine. We just can’t be friends anymore.
In all seriousness though, I’m really excited about this new comic. It’s something I’ve been working on for a while now and I plan to stick with it for the long haul. It’s going to contain a lot of the same humor you’ve all come to expect from c&b and you’ll even find that the two comics are connected in ways you might not expect.
ALSO, I’m not done with c&b! There’s a reason I put that “to be continued” at the end of the last strip. In the words of our future President Schwarzenegger, “I will be back.” For now though, you’ll find me hanging out over in Cleo’s world. I hope to see you there!
