The Best of 2009 & Beyond

So what's this business about "The Best of 2009 & Beyond?" Well, let's start with the first part, and then I'll get to what exactly is "Beyond."

It has been in the back of my mind for some months now that I never gave readers a chance to pick their favorite episodes of 2009. My hiatus from the comic strip that began late in that year rendered that impossible. Sadly, I won't be providing that opportunity to you a year late, but I will be offering the next best thing.

Starting Wednesday, December 15th, the cast of the Wildcat's Lair will pick their favorite episodes from 2009. Obviously, Frank, Hip and I will be among the six who pick. You'll have to wait to see who else gets to pick a favorite. I'll be posting the six best episodes in place of new episodes on Wildcat Wednesdays and Frank Fridays for the remainder of the year, starting on the 15th. You might be surprised by a few of the choices. Each cast member will also get to explain why that episode is his or her favorite.

Okay, let's get to this whole "Beyond" part. Well, I'm not going bye-bye or anything like I did last year, so you lucky readers will get your chance to pick your favorite episodes of 2010. This time around, I plan to post the top five choices, once a week, each Monday in January 2011. I'll post details on how to vote for your favorite episodes next week on Monday. Until then, you might want to look back at some of this year's episodes to figure out which ones you want to vote for. In case you're wondering, there have been almost 80 fresh episodes for 2010, so I hope that'll make for plenty of fun reading.
