Some titbits from hither & yon:

Our phones in Halifax are messed up. We can make outgoing calls but don’t get incoming, so if you need to get ahold of Halifax, send an email, tweet us @strangeadventrz or drop us a note on the facebook page. Sorry for any inconvenience. We’re told this should be fixed soon.


Mark Crilley of Akiko fame has a “how to draw” book coming soon and has been uploading videos on youtube such as this one:

How to draw feet/shoes, front view, male & female

Many more on there as well for any aspiring artists out there!


One of my favourite cartoonists, Faith Erin Hicks posted this strip lamenting the stereotype that girls don’t read/draw/write comics. Take a moment and check it out, won’t you?

Faith’s new book, Friends with Boys, arrives at the end of February but you can read it now at


Kate at the Halifax store made some original valentine’s day cards and is selling them on her etsy site and at the Halifax shop
