Hey everyone. Today is a big day here at The Daily Cartoonist. I have the honor to announce two major changes: new ownership and unveil a new re-designed website.
A few weeks ago, Andrews McMeel Universal and I finalized the purchase of The Daily Cartoonist. TDC is now an independent publication of The Daily Cartoonist, LLC, a private company with the stated mission of providing news, analysis and commentary about comics, comic artists, and the comic industry – much as it has since I founded it in 2005.
I want to thank AMU, not just for their patience and assistance during this transitionary period, but for the years they kept the news flowing after I put the site on hiatus. Bringing on D.D. Degg and Mike Peterson was a smart move. I corresponded with D.D. Degg in the latter years when I was blogging solo. He sent me news tips before the news was even on my radar. Mike’s Comic Strip of the Day is always entertaining and insightful. Based on web site traffic it’s a must read for many of you.
Change is not always easy. There’s still a lot to be done behind the scenes. In the near term, I will be busy behind the scenes and do not anticipate posting news regularly for the foreseeable future. Fortunately, D.D. Degg and Mike will continue to posting the news and commentary you come to expect here.
In summary, it’s good to be back. I look forward to meeting the newer members of this community and re-establishing friendships with the many who have been here for almost two decades. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in the comments and I’ll try to respond in a timely manner.
