Good news. Enough pledges were received to continue the journey of Brewster and Bono in their walk across America. Bono may have to change from his gourmet dog food to a store brand, but he'll survive. Thank you for the support, both financially and through the nice notes we receive.
Again, all the money raised goes to pay artist Yul Tolbert. He will be graciously working for half of what he should be paid. Yul is an African-American artist who lives in Detroit. He works at McDonalds to try and make a living, since making money through art is very difficult. Illustrating Walking Across America has provided him some extra income, but more importantly, he believes in the strip's long term potential and invests sweat equity (metaphorically speaking, since artists probably don't get very sweaty drawing comics).
