Cartoon subscriptions have been a terrific success.
Our amazing subscribers are using their cartoons to connect via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. They’re using their cartoons to engage and gain readers on their blogs and email newsletters. And they’re publishing them on their websites, in their e-books, and even on direct mail postcards.
In fact, over the past year hundreds of subscribers from over a dozen different countries have downloaded and used more than 10,000 cartoons! WOW!
It is so incredibly gratifying to see so many people using and enjoying my cartoons. Thank you so much!
Some of the success, I think, has been due to the value people are seeing. Starting at just $20 a month you can choose from thousands of cartoons and use pretty much as many as you like. But as good as that deal is, today I’m announcing something even better that many subscribers have been asking for – yearly subscriptions:
The existing Pro and Premium monthly plans are still available and will continue to be, but some subscribers asked if there was a way they could be billed just once a year. So we’ve added new Pro and Premium plans that not only renew once a year, but save you money too!
Signing up for either of the new yearly subscriptions will save you a little over 16% (and 11 emails!) over the cost of the same year on a monthly subscription. Other than that, the new yearly subscriptions work exactly the same:
So, if you’re a current monthly subscriber and you’d like to change over to the yearly plan, drop me a line and we’ll get you all fixed up. If you’ve been waiting to subscribe, now’s a great time to sign up and save some money too.
How are you planning to use your cartoons?
When I saw these 1966 Doubl Glo Batman Valentines on eBay, I could not resist. And once I got a good look at them I knew I had to scan them in and share them! (I’ve even included the packaging and the teacher card.)
Check out Batman’s giant head on the Batcopter one. Nora Fries is cured and loves puns? And what is that creature Batman is apparently stabbing in the neck (THUNK!) with a heart?!

Happy Bat-entines Day!

Drawing all those little Facebook Like hands took a while, but it was totally worth it as this is by far the most downloaded valentine cartoon.
I had to draw that little candy heart relatively large to get it to read well visually. At that size you’d probably only get two or three in that box. What a gyp.
Every man’s Valentine’s Day dilemma.
My wife is a teacher and hates decorating bulletin boards, so I came up with this idea about this teacher who just keeps adding holidays to the mix.
Drawing cupids is no fun. So I have to feel really good about a cartoon if I’m going to have to draw two.
You know there’s an interesting backstory there…
Drawing people in mirrors always bugs me. Add two cupids to the mix and I must have really liked this valentine gag.
I had endless fun coming up with all the names for these valentine chocolates, but I think “White” was my favorite.
I wonder if that’s Debbie there in the meeting. Awk-ward…
So those are the most downloaded, but I also wanted to introduce you to this year’s new batch of Valentine cartoons. Enjoy:
Believe it or not coming up with “Sports Supermarket” took a while.
Objection! This so-called “expert” is a mythical winged baby!
See, that’s how they getcha!
Why is Cupid rubbing it in!? What a jerk!
Sweetest Day is just the worst. Everyone knows it.
This totally makes sense. Word is they’re also looking into securing a number of egg and dye contracts.
Still not satisfied?! Sheesh! Fine, here’s some other Valentine’s Day stuff you might enjoy:
But that’s it. Seriously, that’s all I got.
Just a reminder that if you’re using my 1975/2014 Marvel calendar for your desktop wallpaper, it’s time to update.

A while back Mashable challenged readers to create some original cartoons on Vine. I really wanted to join in, but was swamped at the time and didn’t know quite how I’d get my cartoons to work on Vine.
But recently I had an idea I thought I’d try out and I created a few to see if it would work. Let me know what you think!
(BTW, for those of you not familiar with Vine, click the little speaker icon in the upper left hand corner of the image to hear the audio.)
So what do you think? What did you like? What didn’t work? Any ideas for improvements?
BTW, here’s a few of the cartoon Vines Mashable readers came up with.
