Poll results

From 29 August 2014 to 24 January 2015, the following five polls ran on Sandra and Woo. All of them received over 2,500 votes and it’s time to present the results.

Poll from 29 August 2014:

Poll Nr. 71

PC Master Race reporting in!

Poll from 29 August 2014:

Poll Nr. 72

Our readers do not often go to the cinema. Only 6% go to the cinema more than a dozen times per year. I also prefer watching movies on my large TV set now where I don’t have to watch any ads and I can be sure that there’s no one ruining the movie by constantly talking or something like that.

Poll from 29 August 2014:

Poll Nr. 73

Interestingly, the result of this poll seems to clash a bit with the result of the previous one. Although many of our readers don’t go to the cinema very often, they still like the experience.

Poll from 3 November 2014:

Poll Nr. 74

Now, this bunch of story arcs surely contained some controversial material. Well, the story featuring Butterfly didn’t actually contain offensive material, but generally many comic readers don’t like it when a long story arc is focused on a minor character and the main characters don’t appear at all for several weeks. I’m not surprised that Larisa’s story received the most votes, but I am a little surprised that the Cinderella story arc only received 5% of the votes. I think it was a funny and innovative story.

Poll from 3 November 2014:

Poll Nr. 75

The result of this poll is interesting. “Medium rare” received 28% of the votes, “Medium well done” received 15% of the votes, but “Medium” reveived only 14% of the votes. I like my steaks “medium rare” as well if the quality of the meat is really good. But I had to experience that there’s a good chance that they just turn out too raw for my taste if I order them like that, so I usually order them “medium”.

New fanart! Woo!

Yesterday, our reader Raven posted fresh news about Butterfly’s current whereabouts in the comment section of the last blog post:

Our reader Elyk6546 on the other hand recreated the famous watercolor painting of Calvin and Hobbes sitting on a tree in fall with Sandra and Woo:

Character occurrence frequency 2008 to 2014

Here is a diagram that shows how often the main and supporting characters of Sandra and Woo appeared each year. Note that there were only 20 strips in 2008. There were 18 strips that only featured Butterfly at the beginning of the year which particularly reduced the number of appearances of Sandra and Woo.

In a few hours the new strip should be ready. And I can already promise that it’ll look amazing!


Short break to prepare complicated strip

We’re currently working on a sophisticated strip that consists of two large and very detailed drawings. Therefore we will only publish one new Sandra and Woo strip next week. In exchange, I will post two filler drawings that we prepared for such a case.
