The fifth-anniversary panel still
exists; if you want to see it, click here
. It will also be
available via the Archive
and the Miscellaneous
It should also be noted that a WoB
reader who goes by the Internet
moniker of Earthgirl has gone and created a brilliant
West of Bathurst TV Tropes page
for the comic's
birthday. Go ahead and contribute if you like. Tropes
are fun. And thank you very much, Earthgirl.
GREAT BIG BLURBY
THING ABOUT THE WRITE-A-THON:
$666.66! As per the message below, which I don't have time to
change just now, there will be an extra Casey panel presently.
Yes, it's true: $111.66 was donated just yesterday.
Some explanation is probably warranted. Part of the
donation was made by someone who donated before; however, PayPal
apparently decided to withdraw his contribution spontaneously.
He was understandably confused by this and redonated
yesterday. Please be wary when using PayPal; it does weird
stuff sometimes. Luckily, there are ways of donating that
bypass PayPal entirely.
The other donation was for $66.66, and it came along with a note
explaining that I had, in fact, now sold my soul. I cannot
name the donor, as he/she seems to wish to be anonymous (as far as
I know), but I can say
that this person has now donated twice and has contributed a total
of $170.93, meaning that he/she (I do know his/her gender, but I am
being mysterious) is
almost entirely responsible for commissioning seven of those extra
comics. I would like to thank all the donors, but this one
especially; that's some extraordinary generosity there.
CHALLENGE AND OPPORTUNITY: If we do happen to hit
exactly $666 at any point (or, I suppose, $666.66, since that would
just be cool), I shall draw a bonus colour panel involving Casey.
We don't have to stop at $666; the donationmeter just
has to say "666" or "666.66," however briefly. We now have
exactly $30 left to go before we hit this number.
Here's another thing: Clarion doesn't give us donor contact
information, but if you would like me to send you a special
WoB-themed thank-you card
(with Marie on the front and a doodle inside), just send your
mailing address to kmaaren(at)gmail(dot)com. I may
procrastinate on the thank-you cards because that is just the way I
roll, but you will get yours eventually.
Incidentally, the lady who tallies the Clarion donations has called
you all "rock stars," and I agree.
I am slightly less of a rock star. I did not have time for my
story yesterday. Stupid, stupid marking.
