Voting, Welcome Scalzi Readers, and Sponsorship

A bit of news for you all.

First, thanks to all of you for voting for RRT at TopWebComics.com. This is a great way for you to help the comic get more exposure. It also another reason to drop by RRT every day, even though comic updates are on Mondays and Thursdays. In the future, we hope to provide extra artwork as incentives to those who vote. I also want to make the vote button a bit more pronounced on that top bar. It’s kind of hiding up there all sneaky like. Let’s give a hand to the Incredible Lurking Button, folks! (Add golf clap here.)

Second, here’s a welcome to all of our fellow John Scalzi readers who discovered us from his blog posts and tweets. Thanks, John, for being a good sport.

Third, Rocket Road Trip has signed up as a sponsor for the 2Day Designs Twilight: New Moon Premiere. If you haven’t heard about this, you should check it out. If you’re not a fan of Twilight, then maybe you’re a fan of the RiffTrax version of Twilight, like we are. Check it out.

One lucky person (or monster) at the 2Day Designs Twilight: New Moon Premiere will be selected to appear in an upcoming comic to be written and drawn after the Premiere event. A color-printed version of the comic, signed by both Shawn and me, will then be sent to the winner.

Exclusive RRT flyers will also be found at this event. For those who don’t know, 2Day Designs are the talented people behind the awesome swag in the RRT store. We feel lucky to be working with them.

Fourth, we hope you’re enjoying the website redesign. Every few months, I get ambitious and start moving things around. We’ve come a long way since our first design almost two years ago! We’ll continue to refine it as we move along. Let us know what you would like to see on the site, and any ideas you have for spreading the RRT comic.

Fifth, thanks for reading. We spend a lot of time on this little hobby of ours, and it’s you guys, the readers, who make creating the comic worthwhile.

Thanks for joining us on the road trip!
