[wild applause] Congratulations! May this be the first of many.

Your strip has very quickly become an important part of my morning reading. Gotta have something to balance out (drown out?) all the cr*ppy news these days!

i also wanted to say "congratulations" and "on to 1209 more years!"

your work is something special and stands out with fun drawings and interesting characters.
so, thank you for that!

Paul said...

Congratulations! Every day I look forward to the moment it appears in my inbox.

Now, if only Amazon would deliver my darn Cul de Sac book…

Has it been a year already?

Congratulations, well done!

I second Andreas, you've created something unique and now it's hard to imagine the comics page without the Otterloops.

Long may they wave! Or live! Or exist...?

Brian said...

Congratulations!
And when is the darn Washington Post going to put you in the paper daily?
And is it me, or does Beni look like a little Kim Jong Il?

Bob said...

Congratulations!

Brian, Cul de Sac is in fact finally in the WP; they snuck it in there when Single and Looking (nee Out of the Gene Pool) folded.

A very merry birthday to the Otterloop clan! It's only a matter of time before Alice joins Snoopy at the Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Bear said...

Congratulations! I check here often and will definitely be buying your first book. You capture something with your work that few others manage to do. Keep doing it!

For years I looked for your illustrations throughout the Washington Post. Then came CdS. Then this blog.

It just gets better and better.

Thank you.
