A loud knocking echoed through my home today. Someone was at my door! Who could it be?
It was the delivery man! And he left this mysterious package — I wonder what’s inside?
Find out after the jump!
Last night, I posted some exciting news and photos to the Haiku Comics Facebook Page. It really means a lot to Bob and I when you guys recommend Haiku Comics to your friends, so we are trying to find ways to reward those of you who have been so kind as to fan us on Facebook and share links to us on your Facebook homepage. It really helps us when you spread the word about the comic — getting people to just take a minute to even look at the site is really the hardest part of building an audience for Haiku Comics. Every little bit helps.
So, please, go take a look at the pictures! And, while you’re there, Bob and I would really appreciate it if you could take a moment to fan Haiku Comics on Facebook and share us with your friends. Thanks everyone!
So what the hell is going on with the above banner? Well, if you will recall a few weeks ago we ran a poll asking for our readers favorite comics. The reason for this was that we were trying to decide which comics to submit to the Cartoon Art Museum for an upcoming display on web comics. Silly museum, they actually liked our submissions and made them a part of their virtual gallery. BWAHAHAHAHA, the infection continues to spread.
Seriously though, it is a very cool thing to have your work accepted as a part of any display. Granted, we are one of about a hundred artists (never thought I’d use that word in the first person) who have comics on display, but it is still cool none-the-less. So, if you happen to be in San Francisco, stop by the Cartoon Art Museum between now and December and see if you can’t catch a glimpse of us. The entrance fee is cheap ($6 US) and they have a lot of very interesting displays.
Welcome! If this your first time visiting the site, we’d like to invite you to take a look at some of the highlights from our comics archive. While Haiku Comics generally follows the gag-a-day format, many of our best strips have featured reoccurring characters and story lines. Here are some of our favorites:

Fresh Bait (April 1, 2009)
Werewolves Vs. Vampires: Round Two (May 20, 2009)

If you’ve gotten this far, perhaps you’d just like to start from the beginning?
On Monday, I posted a poll. You might have seen it. It looks like this:
Of the following comics, which three do you like the most? (Click on the titles to view the comics.)
Total Voters: 17
Chances are, you looked over the poll and, for whatever reason, thought to yourself, “I know that the guys who make this comic work really hard at it and all they’re asking me to do is answer a simple poll, but there are so many funny cat videos I still need to watch. Hmm. I’m sure there will be plenty of other people who will respond to the poll, right? They don’t really need my input, do they?”
Yeah, well, here is the thing about that. As of this writing, we have only had nine responses to the poll. Nine. Come on, guys, help us out here and give us some feedback. We are a small operation and we need your support. All we want to know is what you think about some comics. So show us some love, okay?
