Unshelved comic strip for 12/18/2008

We're still shipping

Just so you know, we're still shipping orders out from the Unshelved store. I can't guarantee they'll get to their destination by December 24th, but everything is going by Priority Mail and we'll do our best!

Transcription: Almost Halfway!

Unshelved readers are awesome - in less than two days you have already transcribed over 1100 comic strips! And I am awesome because I have personally edited and approved each one. Let's try to get the rest knocked off by the end of the week so I can put the Search functionality on the site and the games can begin (I personally want to know how many strips feature the word "coffee").

Some style guides and tips for you:

  • Book Clubs look like this:
    The Unshelved Book Club presents "Title" by Author

    [[describe the scene here]]

    Dewey: First line of book description here.
    Next line.
    next line.

    [[In the library]]
    Dewey: You'll love it!
    Merv: I doubt it.
  • Some ongoing character names: Cathy is Dewey's girlfriend, Sanjay is Merv's friend who is being homeschooled, Computer Victim is the totally bald, well, computer victim. Fred is the partially bald hapless patron, Grandma is Dewey's grandma, and Angry Lady is the always-irate female patron with only one eye showing at a time. There's also a Little Old Lady in the flowered dress and a stature-challenged Little Old Man in a suit and hat. And the mother and son who look and talk alike are Mother and Son.
  • Some of you are putting in complete scene descriptions. I appreciate the attention to detail, but it's not necessary.

We all appreciate the work you're putting in. It will benefit everyone who uses Unshelved for many years to come!
