    Three cheers and and a trumpet playing “Fanfare For The Common Cartoonist”! I’ve been around since about the middle of Ozy & Millie and I know how much this means to you. Here’s hope for a long, successful career.

    It’s about time! I fell in love with Ozy and Mille, and was terribly sad to see them end. Then I find you on goComics with a new strip that is just as good as Ozy and Millie -almost. (Sorry that I say almost, but Millie is my favorite character of any comic of all time, and that includes Calvin, Hobbes, and Caulfield (from Frazz).) Phoebe and Her Unicorn is going to be a wonderfully huge hit! I’m so happy that you’re going to get the recognition you deserve. I am looking forward to see what lies ahead for Phoebe!! Again, congrats!!!

    Cool!As one of those thats been here from the beginning, I’ve got to say that your comic is at least as good as anything else I’ve seen in the papers, and probably better than most.And, you don’t have to be a little girl to get it. Its fun on sooo many levels.I suspect that you are going to end up with a broad fan base.

    I thought the strip went print when it was renamed. Does this mean no more reprints after the newcomers are brought up to speed? (“‘Phoebe and Her Unicorn’ was not updated today. See previous strip.”)
