Unshelved comic strip for 3/17/2008

Random House Library

Unshelved is made possible this week by Random House Libraries, who, based on their banner up there, have a much better cartoonist at their disposal than I. Because I've met these people and they really look like that, including the smiles and waving. But I digress. Random House is, like, the biggest publisher in the known universe, but their library department is as down-home and accessible as can be, with staff book picks and all sorts of resources, including information about their upcoming appearance at PLA. Drop by their website and check them out

Sunday's Crash

Photoshop crashed when the Sunday strip, unsaved, was about 95% finished. So I'm in a period of mourning. I will redraw it, and get Monday's done, when said period finished.

Needless to say it was the best strip I've ever drawn. Well maybe not. But it always seems that way.

HarperCollins Book and Film Festival

Thanks to Harper Collins for helping keep the lights on at Unshelved last week. Remember, you've got until the end of the month, or while supplies last, to get a free Book and Film Festival Kit.
