: Freshly Molted Penguin
Feb 24, 2006

I knew we needed some closure on this molting issue. Two weeks of molting, we practically watched Osbourne molt in realtime. I could have had a molt cam set up and running.

Actually if you’ve been watching the penguin cam I posted a long time ago you would see the chicks have grown up and the adults have been molting. Looks like there is currently some technical difficulties with the nest closeup camera though.

On the Rocks Reviewed

Various people that enjoy sharing their opinions and commentary on webcomics have been writing up some reviews of On the Rocks. Apparently it has drawn enough attention to warrant review, where these critics corner your little comic in a back alley and deliver kidney punches. I guess there is not much point to read them if you are already a reader, but if it amuses you then feel free to check them out. Actually mostly nice stuff was written. I just like to print out the nicest things said, lay the printouts out on the floor and roll around in them while playing loud opera.

“Funny… attractive… It’s just what a webcomic should be: a quick bit of well-crafted entertainment, with a skewed point of view and a neat way of portraying situations.”
— Comics Worth Reading

I was just so relieved to find my comic mentioned on a site like, it is just so much better than finding it on say… or something, I would have have been in tears.

“The humor is consistently good, and the artwork surprisingly expressive… this series bears watching (pun unintended).”
— The Webcomics Examiner (Scroll it down)

They even said that I was competent and funny. The funny is a given, but competent, ha, I have even fooled the critics! I laugh!

“Are you lauging out loud, because you should be.”
— Online Comics Blogspot

This one seems to be by Julie who comments here, thanks Julie!

“…it’s a pretty good read. No real commitment level to speak of, and a high degree of “chuckle-factor”…”
— The Webcomicker

Gilead sliced the comic open and displayed its inner workings and organs. Gross but informative!

“On the Rocks is always funny.”
— Jim Burgess of Able & Baker (Scroll it way down)

This isn’t even a review. Jim has just plugged the comic a couple times and said nice stuff. On the outside I pretend I don’t even know or care, but on the inside I go in the corner and cry little tears of joy.
