Happy New Year and Christmas Comic Wrap-up


January 1, 2012 - Sunday

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year! I just want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for a great 2011 at Calamities of Nature. The support I've received for this comic never ceases to amaze me. I am truly lucky and humbled that so many of you enjoy reading and supporting my artistic creations.


Case in point, the Christmas comic promotion that we started almost two weeks ago has now come to a close. In all, this comic received 76,183 page views (click the picture below for the detailed stats), which means $152.37 donated to Doctors Without Borders. I was completely flabbergasted by the outpouring of support. The majority of the page views came from Facebook and was a culmination of the work of a large number of individual readers--too many to list here. I do want to mention a couple of key bloggers that really helped spread the word: Hemant Mehta at the Friendly Atheist, Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post, John Wilkins from Evolving Thoughts, Maria Walters at Skepchick, John Glynn of GoComics.com (the same site that hosts Peanuts), Gary Tyrrell at Fleen, and the blogs Movin' Meat and Robot 6 at Comic Book Resources. Of course there are plenty of other blogs I don't have space to mention or may have missed, so feel free to leave a link to your blog post in the comments below if you also posted this comic to your site. Thanks once more for your amazing support and have a great 2012!
