Faithful CYNC readers, we greatly appreciate your support. We created CYNC #1 on July 12th, 2010– the day that Harvey Pekar died. Harvey was a pioneer of the “comics as autobiography” movement. He taught us that the most moving and fulfilling comics are those that force us to turn inwards and recognize that our ordinary, everyday actions are actually our most incredible and long-lasting legacies. Over the course of our first humble year, we posted 20 comics and received nearly 4500 page-views, averaging over 180 views per week. We exceeded all possible expectations I could have dreamed for us. And we have so many more ideas for 2011 and beyond.
As a “year-end special”, I’d like to post a 3-day series of lists that reflect some of the central interests of one of the “characters” (Johnny) in our comic. The first lists will be my favorite albums and songs of 2010; the second list will be my favorite comics; and the third list will be the best foods and beverages I consumed in 2010. I welcome your input on the lists. Please feel free to suggest your own favorites in each category.
We will return with another new CYNC in early January. In the meantime, enjoy these lists and peruse the CYNC archives. Thanks again for your support, and we wish you the happiest of holidays.
-Johnny (and Sookie)
