A little known secret of mine is that I really like the comic Sheldon. I don’t read it as often as I would like because I don’t like how comics.com treats my computer. I’m really just not a fan of comics.com honestly. The comics.com site feels like reading ebay ads. So when I read that on tuesday November 7th Sheldon was moving to www.sheldoncomics.com I did a little happy dance. Sheldon honestly on my top list of comics I would ad to my daily paper or daily news site if I was running one. Here is the news as Dave Kellett wrote it. Don’t forget you can read and comment on this news at Blank Labels site.
Sheldon Is Moving!
A heads-up for Sheldon readers…on Tuesday, Nov. 7th, I’ll be moving the strip to a new site at http://www.sheldoncomics.com.
The new site will feature:
- Free access to 5+ years of Sheldon strip archives
- Larger-sized Sunday and daily comics
- Faster loading times
- Free daily delivery of Sheldon by e-mail
- Free RSS feed
- Free “Send This Strip to a Friend” feature
- “Jump to a Random Strip” feature
- No pop-up/pop-under ads
- Daily blog
- Direct links to the forum, store, and more
- … basically, everything the strip didn’t have at comics.com
But here’s my one request: please help get the word out about the new URL: http://www.sheldoncomics.com. The majority of Sheldon readers currently get the strip via “comics.com/comics/sheldon”, or via United Media’s e-mail delivery. And when the strip moves, these readers won’t have any way of know where the strip went to (I tried putting a notice in the strip…it got edited out).
So it’s up to me to get the word out. And you, if you’re willing.
Please, spread the news. And I’ll see you November 7th at the new site!
Good Luck Dave!
