My strip has now been running continuously for 1094 days. May 3rd, 2008 was the day the very first Rabbits Against Magic strip (above) ran on Comic Sherpa which makes three whole years worth of continuous stripping in full color and no reruns!


Comparing it with the most recent strip you can see how it has evolved over the years.  The first strip was colored with water color and inked with a much finer brush.  I had no regular characters in mind and it took a few months for Eightball and Weenus to emerge from the pack.  If I remember correctly it took about four hours to complete.  Today's strip took less than an hour from concept to posting.

Thanks John. All I can say is that you need to make optimal use of your lunchtimes. Who needs midday food anyway.
