Slowpoke on Daily Kos

It’s been a remarkably not-boring week here at Slowpoke HQ. Today I can officially announce that Slowpoke will be joining the comics roster at Daily Kos, alongside my colleagues Tom Tomorrow and Matt Bors. I’ve been hoping something like this would happen for a long time. For years, we cartoonists have watched in dismay as the only humor content progressive blogs seemed interested in was embedded video clips from the Daily Show and Colbert. Both shows are great, of course, but they were starting to feel a bit like Starbucks. Everywhere you went, there they were! Hats off to Markos (and comics coordinator Tom Tomorrow) for founding a great new home online for alternative political cartoons.

    This is cool, I hope it really works out for you guys.

    Um, how do you get paid? Is it by a cut of ad revenues?

  • Bill Freese

    Matt, Jen and Tom all in one place? I’ll never need to leave home again.

  • Jen Sorensen

    Thanks, everyone!

    @John – I’m paid a flat rate, but you should still visit Kos comics 1,000 times a day.
