Nicole Jantze's Mission

Over at The Norm, Nicole Jantze has a mission. Like me, she wants to see her husband Michael keep making The Norm, one of the most insightful and best illustrated strips there is. He recently announced he was giving up on the rat race of syndicated cartooning, and that means the end of The Norm as we know it. Unless he can make a living from this crazy webcomic thing I've heard so much about. So Nicole is asking his fans to become members (which is very cheap) and if enough people sign up, by gosh by golly he'll keep up his good work. Check it out and pay up. He's worth it.

P.S. It's not completely out of the question that you'll hear a similar plea from us one of these days, but we're hoping to avoid that by becoming titans of merchandising and publishing. Speaking of which, buy something from us. They're on sale.
