First off - just a reminder that I'll be in artist alley this weekend (April 6th and 7th) at Planet Comicon in Kansas City, Missouri. I also might be on the Webcomics Panel. Hope to see some of you there!
So, it's April Fools Day. In the almost twelve years I've done S*P I think this is the only time I've done a strip that even mentions the damn day. I never really go into it the day. Way back it was pretty common for webcomics to do special things for the day, like trade comics or do strips that dangle fake storylines - stuff like that. I dunno why it's never interested me. Probably because I'm lazy as hell and anything I'd want to do would require a lot of time to be either appropriately fun or appropriately cruel to all of you.
I would make the worst dad ever.
Anyway, I'm sure there are other people doing cool stuff with their comics today. Just remember to check out any news article or blog post you read and make sure it's not a joke before you get excited or worked up. In fact, that's probably not a bad idea for the rest of the year.
