Welcome to the Over the Hedge Blog where we will discuss all things Hammy, RJ and if you insist, Verne.
In case you’re lost, confused or NOT one of our several dozen fans, Over the Hedge is an internationally syndicated comic strip that runs in about 130 newspapers worldwide. I say “about” because newspapers are melting away like ice caps and it’s just too depressing to check. I like to be optimistic, which is to say, ignorant, of our exact status.
Meanwhile, we (and by we I mean me) are moving our focus online in an attempt to define and exploit our niche. In other words, I have a theory that if I know each fan by name it makes it a lot easier to guilt them into buying a book or some swag. Like, “Jeff, the mortgage is due and I really think it’s time you bought another T-shirt.” Or, “Mitch, remember that time I patiently stood vigle while you had that certain embarrassing medical procedure back in ’84? I think it’s about time you repaid that debt with a purchase of a Hammy inside-the-egg-egg-scrambler. I’m very optimistic about this theory.
We’ll be adding lots of other content (and sales items) in the coming weeks. Thanks for checking us out and please, please, please, keep on reading Over the Hedge.
Your servant in need,
