Summer 2011
by Breck

Hey everyone, long time no see.  Well, it is summer again, and after a long, LONG hiatus, AM is suddenly showing activity.

By "activity", I of course mean that I deleted the two "filler" bits I did way back when so that once again the only content to be found here is, well, content.

Anyway, I've got some good news and some bad news.  The good news is that in just a few weeks, I'll be launching a regular strip again, and it will be awesome.  The bad news is that it will probably not be AM.  I KNOW, we're all upset about it, but it just wasn't in the cards for a summer season.  But we'll see, you never know what will happen.

Anyway, feel free to read through the AM archive to your heart's content, and check back in these next few weeks for updates on what is to come for the summer.  Remember, it WILL be AWESOME.




Happy Fall
by Breck

Well, if you hadn't noticed, AM is back up and running.  Hurrah and happiness for all.  I haven't been using the blog all that much, as conveying news through comments is just so much more convenient, but I felt the need to post some kind of news story here in order that I might convey exactly what is up with AM.  So here goes:

Animal Magnetism will be running twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) forever and ever amen.  Well, at least for the forseeable future.  Its a manageable schedule during the school year, and it MAY expand once summer rolls around (but that's not for a loooooong time).  So for now, enjoy AM on the offdays - the weekdays when XKCD doesn't update.  Tell your friends.  Spread the word.  Make it famous. 


50 Strips
by Breck

Last Friday, February 26th, I posted AM's 50th strip.  These past few weeks have been very productive.  There's been a lot of new material, and a lot of new viewers.  So thanks everybody, and lets make these next 50 even better!

See the strip here:

Scanner Delay
by Breck

There won't be a new comic up tonight, simply because I can't use my roommate's scanner at the moment.  It is already drawn, however, so it will be up within the next day.  I would expect this to happen a fair amount.  The strips may not release on time, but they will release.  Probably.

Tons of stuff has happenned with AM this week, apparently.  Not only did I just post the guest comics (which you should check out if you haven't already.  They're very badass), but it has also just passed 2000 views.  I guess it happenned at some point while I was away at band practice, rocking hard and makin noise.  Good times.  At any rate, thank you everyone, and please enjoy the 2000 view pinup in honor of this occasion. 

There will be a new comic this Monday (in 6 hours) so hurry back!

Guest Comics!
by Breck

Hey all!  Hope you had a good week.  So I'm sitting here working on this Monday's comic, and I suddenly realized that I hadn't uploaded the guest comics that NarcoticVenus and Night made for AM at Christmas.  This situation is now rectified. 

Regular update as usual on Monday.  See you then!
