Tuesday, December 3rd 2019 - Happy 20th Anniversary, Namir Deiter!
Snowcone Effect(3 of 8)
Happy 20th NDVersary! Isabel's first comic, Namir Deiter, began twenty years ago this weekend - November 29 1999. The "first" comic was added a bit later. Here we are, 20 years and over 9000 comics later*, still going! Back when Isabel started - and Namir Deiter is entirely Isabel's thing - there weren't a lot of women doing online comics, especially about girls and relationships.
Namir Deiter carried on for fifteen years before she completed it - and started the sequel three weeks later.
Whether you've been here since the beginning or are just joining us now, we're glad to have you. It's been a long journey. Not THE longest. But pretty respectable. We've made a lot of friends and had a lot of good times along the way. And some not-so-good times, but that will happen to anyone in the space of twenty years.
*: Counting Namir Deiter, You Say it First, Nicole and Derek, Wonderkittens, NamirDeiter.net bonus comics, and everything else. About 2/3 of that is in the greater Namir Deiter continuity. You don't need to read all that to follow along, but you're welcome to and we're not going to try to talk you out of it. Our current comic, Nicole and Derek, is a sequel to both Namir Deiter and You Say it First, give or take some timeline tweaks. Which are probably Shelby's fault.
Also, this year, we will not be doing our traditional Christmas card exchange. We're sad that we won't be able to. We got rid of our PO Box a few months ago, because they're only open during business hours and, well, we work during business hours. We hope to send something out to donors and will be confirming addresses in the near future.
