Hi --

Just wanted to congratulate you on 1 year of the strip. I found it through "Number 12's Webcomic Reviews," although I kind of know Doug from #callahans .

Hey, put in a link to the Broken By Design page! (I like that you had continuity for the New Year's Eve strip -- Bernie being on vacation in both strips. But the guy who stayed overnight was a Sean clone...) Bernie rules!

Happy birthday to one of the best, most original comic strips to emerge in years! You guys are the best; keep it up! Hope to be wishing you a happy second birthday (and a fifth, and a tenth, etc...)

Happy Birthday guys! And many more. WFB was the first online comic strip I ever read, now I've got 5. Thanks for the addiction, what a great place to start.

I love your strip, and the comic's not bad either (that was painful - even the knife in my hand couldn't stop it).

Bernie is of course my favourite, being so witty, urbane and scarily fun (or funnily scary). I have to admit Jane can annoy sometimes, with her whining and whingeing, but every now and then she cracks me up, so it all evens out.

Good luck for many more years of collaboration and thank you for entertaining me so well.


PS I loved their trip to Canada - especially Bernie's contretemps with the cop.

Yay one year! Congrats, you two. It's been a year you've kept me amused, at least. ^_^

So... are you doing another Frütripping story? ;)
