Unshelved comic strip for 11/5/2008


Karen Cutter of the Nesbit School Library created this cool zine (in the shape of an old checkout card inside its pocket) for a workshop last summer and used some of our comics (with permission) inside. One of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. Thanks Karen!

Our Next President

Yes we did.


We've added a lot of new readers lately, so I'd like to take this chance to tell and/or remind you about some Unshelved features:

  • My favorite way to read comics and blogs is by RSS feed, specifically via Google Reader. It means going to one website instead of dozens. Follow this link and follow the directions to get started with Unshelved's RSS feed.
  • If you already get our main RSS feed, you may not know that we have a second feed for Drop-In Titles, our service for finding out about books that were released too late to get into catalogs.
  • If you can't get enough of my blatherings, you can always follow my Twitter feed, a stream-of-conciousness dump of my brain, combined with witty back-and-forth with fellow Twitterers. It's a good time. Warning: I censor myself substantially less on Twitter.
  • And, in case it isn't manifestly obvious, we have a store. Our books and merchandise are not only awesome, they are the way our readers help support us. Have a look around and see if anything appeals.

Now back to our regularly-scheduled comic strip.
