I’m sorry, but I find the recipes of print cartoonist’s concoctions to be far tastier than webcartoonists’.

@Jim Lavery – Actually Brian Anderson is a published print cartoonist in over 300 newspapers.

@David Jones – Email me and we can discuss other projects.

Hey, Jim Lavery, the book is not about print vs. webcomics, it’s about we’re raising money for the holidays to support the food banks of the USA and Canada. We’ve done really well so far, and I want the focus to be on that, not which format you prefer.

So, please help us out, regardless of your personal preferences of format for comics. We’re feeding hungry families here with this project. Thank you!

Ha! Clearly Jim’s comment was a joke, and a funny one too, given the heated debates we’ve seen on this forum.

Been selling these at cons and craft fairs and getting some decent interest… the pitch is easy- “ya like food? ya like comics? ya like giving to charities? Good, buy this.” LOL!

Seriously, a great idea by Kurt…. glad to be apart of it.

@Dawn Griffin – It’s a great pitch and truly it helps out the hungry in North America.

@John Hover – Sounds like an interesting comic, I’ll have to check it out. Why not compare recipes with what you have to ours in the cookbook?

Just have to click on that link: http://webcomiccookbook.org/order

Clearly this project discriminates against cartoonists who can’t cook.

@Donna Lewis – Actually, no discrimination at all. In fact, it’s so user friendly that family members, friends and even cartoonists can cook with no issues at all.

No way, Kurt Sasso. I know discrimination when I see it. This is a perfect class action….since cartoonists who can’t cook are a protected class.
