Help support the comic strip by sponsoring for a day!

The new “Kevin & Kell” collection is now available for holiday gift-giving. “Masked Romance” features the complete year of 2020, including the unexpected encounter between George and Ophelia.
As with the previous book, every strip is presented in full color. I’m delighted that Terrence and Isabel Marks’ talents are finally available in the print medium.
One request; please buy through Lulu and not through Amazon. Simply put, I get a fair compensation through Lulu, but I only see pennies per copy through Amazon. Thanks!
"Kevin & Kell" 2023 patron program
Every year, the most important day for "Kevin & Kell" is the autumn launch of the annual patron program. In one 24-hour period I can see as much as 1/6th of the strip's annual income. Yesterday, however, saw a problem when the site went down during mid-morning, the most heavily trafficked time of the day. As a result, many readers never saw the special strip that appeared for 30 seconds before the regular strip. The impact was significant.
As a result, I'm requesting that you go to https://www.kevinandkell.com/support/ for the ways that you can keep the strip going. Thanks in advance!
Dethany's video for May
Dethany and Fi, the Office Oracles, become appliances to discuss the security challenges posed by household connected devices, and offer tips on decreasing the risks.
Fastrack and Safe Havens books
We have a new “Fastrack” collection, "Runaway Fi," which is now available. It contains the complete year of 2017, which was quite eventful for Fi.
We also have two “Safe Havens” collections. “Feryl and the Feline” features the complete year of 2017, and “Safe Havens on Mars” consists of the first 18 months of the epochal voyage to the red planet, spanning 2018 and half of 2019.
Dethany's graphic novel sequel
Big news! The good folks at Hermes Press are going to publish a sequel to the graphic novel, “Dethany and the Other Clique,” which will debut next summer at the 2024 San Diego Comic Con.
Those of you who’ve read the first book know that it concludes at the end of the school year. The sequel, entitled “The Phantom of the Swim Team,” picks up on the first day of summer vacation. Changes of all kinds are in store for the Other Clique.
The book will be 125 pages, in paperback this time. Hermes has asked for the cover art to begin promoting the novel, so we hope to have that in the next month or so.
Meanwhile, here’s the link to the first book!
New "Kevin & Kell' collection...in color!
I'm excited to announce that for the first time in fifteen years I'm able to offer a "Kevin & Kell" book in color, where Terrence and Isabel Marks' wonderful coloring work can be seen in print. This is due to Lulu offering a price point where it's reasonable; just three dollars more than the previous black and white versions. (For some reason this only applies to U.S. Dollars, Euros and U.K. Pounds; I haven't yet been told why that is.)
It features the complete year of 2019 strips, and also Lindesfarne's Blog adding background to the action. It's titled "Revenge Served Wild" as it features the story where the Dewclaws try to get Angelique to see the error of her ways.
