Out of the frying pan…

Happy anniversary!

Twenty-three years ago today, I posted my first comic on the Web. Greystone Inn, first appeared on a GeoCities site on February 14, 2000. I have been continually publishing comics — and working on comics-related projects — ever since that day.
On April 16, 2001, it began running in the Philadelphia Daily News. Several other newspaper would pick up the comic, but only the Daily News ran it from its first strip to the last.
fond memories
Greystone Inn ran online Monday-through-Saturday until the end of June 2005. The next day, Evil Inc was launched.
At the beginning of 2016, the comic-strip format was retired in favor of a comic-book approach and the site began updating twice a week in half-page chunks.
Over the past 23 years, I have also been fortunate enough to work on other comics I'm proud of. Courting Disaster, a single-panel strip about sex and relationships, was launched on Jan 12, 2005. It was originally created to accompany a sex-advice column that ran in the Philadelphia Daily News.
It ended in 2012, when I left that newspaper, but it was reinvented as Courting Disaster Uncensored, a NSFW feature available only to Patreon backers and in printed collections.
Phables was a full-page comic about life in Philadelphia which started on Feb. 20, 2006. It was nominated for an Eisner Award for best webcomic the following year.
And, of course, Evil Inc After Dark, my first NSFW series, was launched officially in April 2015.
Along the way, there have been dozens of other projects...
Whew! It's been a busy 23 years!
And none of it would have been possible without your participation — on my sites, at comic-convention appearances, and of course, on Patreon. You folks have been with me every step of the way, and I couldn't be more grateful.
