All readers' tickets that have been purchased up to now will be refunded - thank you so much to everyone who took that leap of faith! I've decided I wanted to open the strip up to a much bigger audience, and I'm relying on a small amount of advertising (discreet) and a PayPal donations system to help keep the site going. The advertisers are not sponsors, just Google ads, so only follow the link if you're genuinely interested - too many clicks from a single IP address and they'll think there's something funny going on! If you want to support the comic financially, go to the read strip page, and you'll see a donate button. Thanks.
Most importantly, the income from the webcomic version of the strip is to go towards the printed book version, and that is still the aim of the site.
