May your 2017 be filled with friends that have your spleen. My spleen and I will be celebrating the holiday this weekend, which means there will be no new comic posted on Friday. The Little Vampires will be back to on Monday, January 2nd, 2017.

I will end my 2016 by sharing a little insight into my writing process with you. I was getting ready to go to lunch when I thought of the perfect punchline for today’s comic, so I hastily scribbled a reminder on a sticky note. I came back to my desk and saw this.


If I ever write a book on writing, it will be nothing more than a random assemblage of sticky notes scribbled with words that look like parts of some mad scientist’s grocery list.

Happy New Year!
