They're back!

My two favorite D&D-themed web comics, that is.  This may be old news, but in case you're one who gets discouraged checking for updates after a long stretch of nothing new, you might be interested to know. 

A big thumbs-up (irony intended) for Order of the Stick which has posted a couple new strips recently.  Rich Burlew's maimed thumb seems to have recovered sufficiently for at least the occasional update, and hopefully for both him and the fans who've missed his wit, that trend continues. 

My other favorite, Marvin the Mage, had been stalled seemingly forever on issue 41 for reasons unknown.  It looks like he's got a new gig with Gygax magazine now, and two new strips.  The graphic on the page says "Also appearing in Gygax magazine," as in additionally rather than exclusively, so it looks like those of us who've been following him on the web won't be left out in the cold. 

That's it for this post.  Just wanted to spread the word, in case there's some remote corner of Internet Game Geek Land where the news has not yet reached, and to proclaim my own elation at their long-awaited return.
