The First Order of Change

I hope you’ve got those loins fully girded, per my earlier instructions. The first thing I’m changing around here is that I’m de-emphasizing the name “Slowpoke” and using my name instead, the way most daily editorial cartoonists (and op-ed columnists) do. You may have noticed this week’s strip lacked a logo. Or not. It’s pretty subtle, actually. I’m pretty entrenched with the old name, so I’m not going to start calling the strip “The Cartoon Formerly Known as Slowpoke” or anything.

Why the switch? Well, Lil’ Bow Wow eventually had to become Bow Wow at some point. (Hopefully someday he’ll just be Wow.) I’m designing a new site that encompasses all my different projects, and this keeps everything simple.
