On the Spectrum #50 - Time for bed, part 2

(click to enlarge)

Sometimes "quiet in the room" works out better than others...

So I've made it to 50 issues! W00t! W00t! And this is the last one that will post in the myspace blog. From this point onward, this blog will be the official home of On the Spectrum. I'm still going to maintain my MySpace page, but only as a personal profile and blog; not for the comic.

So if you're just tuning in, and wondering how I created 50 comic strips in two days, haha, yeah, I didn't. This strip was stared on MySpace over a year ago, OTS#1 posted on 7/31/08 to be precise. And while there are a lot of cool things you can do in MySpace (why would anyone use facebook?!) There are also some limitations with it that make the Google blog a better product, IMHO. I've still got to see if I can tinker with the size of the images though - it would be nice to be able to post them legibly w/o having to click out. I'll see what I can do about that. (Maybe do the four panels vertically?) We'll see what works. But every strip that posted over the past year on MySpace (OTS #1-49) has been moved here. And going forward, the strip should update about once a week, typically late Saturday night.

So please enjoy! And please feel free to leave comments, or send me a message. I really love hearing from everyone, and am fairly good about getting back. If you want to see my myspace page, it's www.myspace.com/on_the_spectrum. And it will be undergoing some major renovation now that the comic is here and that page has a different purpose. (And if you do check it out, scroll through the blog a bit. I've got some other comics that I've been working on, as well as some other tidbits, pics, youtube links, etc...)

I was despartely looking for a parent that finds the humor in day to day life with autism - thank you so much for showing me I'm not alone! I sat down the other day and read through the whole set, such a great comic! I can't wait to see more!

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoy them! And no: YOU'RE NOT ALONE!

BTW - if you have any stories to SHARE, I'd love to hear them... never know when I might need some material! LOL :)

Thanks for commenting!

Sam does this all the time. Well, both things actually.

He goes in his room and parties when he's supposed to be sleeping. DH and I joke that he must have a night club in there because no child can make that much noise.

And if he knows he's about to get in trouble he says "I want to be good!" or "I want to sit down" (or whatever he's supposed to be doing).

Love the strip so far.

LOL. That's so cute! Lately Michael's been saying "That's not a bad Michael." whenever HE knows (or thinks) he's in trouble.
