    Stephanie was watching slow cartoonists, then. It's usually less.

      Glad you liked it and want to see more. Thanks! Simone & Ajax will return later this year. Working on the new story now. Keep watching here at ComicMix and at the official Simone & Ajax site, http://www.simoneandajax.com, for news.

    "The closest ComicMix comes to an "all ages" book is Simone and Ajax, which has the look of an Archie Comic, but the sensibilities of a Marx Brothers Movie."Congrats on completing another volume of the Simone and Ajax Saga. Will we ever see Monica Moon on ComicMix? How about a Monica Moon/Hilly Rose crossover event! B.C. Boyer's probably not doing much with Hilly. Maybe a HUGE "Sirens of Space" event? Legends of the Stargrazers? Celestial Mechanics? Penny Century? Barbarella? Sundra Peale? Maybe this would make a cool Munden's Bar story?Ah, I would just be happy to see the adventures of Monica Moon here on ComicMix. "Woody" has a striking resemblance to "Norbert!" Could they be cousins? Vinnie would love you long time if you gave Norbert a cameo.Looking forward to more Simone and Ajax in the Fall. Rock on!

      Glad you liked the latest Simone & Ajax adventure. Working hard on the next one. Where did you find that very complimentary quote about S&A? Being compared to both Archie Comics and the Marx Brothers is high praise. I'm a fan of both.And if you want to see Monica Moon, just keep bugging ComicMix's Mike Gold (I'm sure he'll appreciate my telling people to bug him). While ComicMix is, thankfully, keeping me busy with Simone & Ajax for a bit, it never hurts to let them know that you'd like to see Monica Moon, more Simone & Ajax, or more of any of your ComicMix favorites. If anyone will be out at Comic-Con in San Diego, stop by the ComicMix Table, set up with the Insight Studios booth, and let them know what you think, while checking out some nifty suprises they'll have. I'm, unfortunately, missing it for the first time in 13 years, but I'm sure they'll pass on any S&A comments to me.

        The quote was me, which is why I left it unattributed. But I said that in the comments to Mike Gold's column, "Why Comic Book Sales Suck,"which is why I put it in quotations. I think it sums up Simone and Ajax pretty well. You can certainly see the Dan DeCarlo influence (which I read as "Archie") and the pacing is frenetic and zany, like the Marx Brothers. The whole thing has a nostalgic or timeless quality. Have you ever read Arn Saba's "Neil the Horse"? That comic was surreal nostalgia too. But it was sweeter, more "precious" and cutesy than Simone and Ajax. I hear that there is a complete, unpublished, 64 page "Neil the Horse" graphic novel. Arn Saba was notable for trying to merge comics with musical comedy. I think that kind of experimentation would be perfect for web comics! Comics with a musical soundtrack.
