I have added the following comic drawn by Powree (characters, shading) and BeatusVir (backgrounds, coloration) to our Artwork page. There’s also some other new stuff on that page if you have not visited it for some time, for example a fan comic by Willie O’ Brien.
The comic by Powree and BeatusVir retells an episode of the Indonesian novel 5 cm. It was created for a local comic contest and made it into the final round. I myself helped with the English translation.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Woo:
The first paperback collection of Sandra and Woo, entitled The Woo, is out! It contains on 135 black and white pages:
- All 116 strips published from 19 October 2008 to 30 November 2009
- Up to three drafts of each strip
- Several other sketches, for example the first drafts of Shadow and Sid
- All the artwork that has been created for the store, the image Lazy Summer Day is printed in color on the back
- The one pager Monkey Facts
- Six Full page versions (in landscape format) of the six visually most impressive single panels
- The script which was written for the strip Moms in Black
Generally, we tried to stuff all the images related to Sandra and Woo that we found on our hard drives into the book, so that nobody can complain that the book does not contain enough content .
>> Get Sandra and Woo 1: The Woo at Lulu!
The “unique selling point” of the anthology are certainly the drafts of each strip. Even for me, it is often quite interesting to compare them with the final strips:
Pages 44 and 45
Pages 60 and 61
- If you like the cover, it is also available as a poster (and on some other products, for example on a mousepad) in our store! Of course without the captions.

Okay, I usually don’t want to post links to funny videos on our front page because there are so many other websites which do a really good job at that, but this one is just beyond epic:

First of all, I want to thank everybody who voted for Sandra and Woo at the Webcomic Reader’s Choice Awards. It ended up on the fifth position in the category “Best new comic” which would have been the last spot to qualify for the final jury round and I was happy about that. Instead, sadly, the WCRC Awards went down the tubes in a delicious drama meltdown. After receiving some backlash for changing the rules during run time, the webmaster of Webcomic Planet and organizer of the awards lost all his manners and called the creator of Tara Normal (#1 at “Best new comic”) a “fucker” and “boy herpes” and the creator of Red Moon Rising (#4 at “Best new comic”) a “bitch”. I myself got accused of “bitching” and “whining” for asking some questions during a chat.
Until yesterday I thought there were only some minor problems, but oh well… I guess sometimes even rather trivial issues about trivial topics like a small webcomic award spiral out of control.
Thanks for voting anyway.

I was still to young to really understand what’s going on back then, though.
