I recently received some comic news about Sandra and Woo’s milestone and it’s worth taking notice about. Here is the text:
“On 19 October 2013, our comedy webcomic Sandra and Woo (http://www.sandraandwoo.com/) will celebrate its fifth birthday. The comic strip features the 12-year-old girl Sandra North, her mischievous pet raccoon Woo, and their friends and relatives. It is written by me, the German author Oliver Knörzer (Novil), and drawn by the Indonesian artist Puri Andini (Powree).
The 520 Sandra and Woo strips published so far have generated almost 100 million page views and 35,000 comments. The overwhelming support we have received from our readers gives us the motivation for at least five more years! By the way, fantasy webcomic Gaia (http://www.gaiacomic.com/) will celebrate its second birthday in just a month as well.”
Any comic that posts longer than a few weeks is doing well and any that makes it a year is doing great. And here Sandra and Woo is still going strong. Hats off to you folks.
Here’s a little tidbit that might catch your thinking fancy from the press release:
“The Book of Woo, a comic inspired by the Voynich manuscript and showing strange illustrations next to a cipher text: http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2013/07/29/0500-the-book-of-woo/ The cryptology experts Nick Pelling and Klaus Schmeh discussed the comic in their blogs, but nobody was yet able to decrypt it. I have therefore decided to raise the prize money for its decryption to $300.”
Finally, I thought I had reviewed this comic but it appears I haven’t. I will add it to my list.
