Meet Hilo
Unshelved comic strip for 9/18/2007

Unshelved, the first volume

In all the excitement of our fifth collection Read Responsibly I don't think I mentioned that we also reprinted our first collection, Unshelved which means it's the third printing. That's exciting, because it means we've sold a lot of books, but also scary, because it means my garage is full of inventory. Buy our books! This new printing contains a few design tweaks, most notably the cover now bears our new logo (but the old ISBN). While supplies of the old book last you're as likely to get one as the other. If you order from our store you can ask nicely for the new one (or the old) and we'll do our best to get you the one you want.

Your Kind Responses

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you who responded so positively to my posting about house hunting for a more ethnically diverse neighborhood. I think I heard from everyone in the world who supports and/or experienced homeschooling, adoption, and ethnic diversity, separately and in various combinations. I draw this strip alone in my studio, and sometimes I forget how many fans we have and how supportive they are. I also got a wealth of votes for having us move to various Seattle neighborhoods - maybe we should put it up for auction? This is a slightly scary adventure on which we're embarking, and it's good to know so many of you are with us, at least in spirit. (surreptitiously wipes tear from eye)
