First things first: you can download the big version of today’s page right here. It’s about eight megs, though, so take it easy. Savor it. Rub it all over your face.

Second, as promised, we have an announcement about the new artist– it’s going to be John Waltrip, a dearly trusted friend and longtime collaborator of mine, whose recent guest page got a lot of good buzz. John starts on Monday, and our chapter resumes, full speed ahead, from there.

Thanks for your patience with us throughout this difficult transition (and tonight’s slightly tardy update). We’ll do our best always to be worthy of that.
