Cigarro & Cerveja, the weekly comic strip about a cigarette-smoking rabbit and a beer-drinking goose, has turned 9 today. And to mark the anniversary it will go through a daily experiment (at least for a while).
How long can the weekly comic survive the daily grind? Turn in and find out.

Iâ€™m posting my San Diego shipping story so that anybody who can learn from my experience will be able to. I apologize for the length of the post but I figure that more can be gleaned from a larger post.
Back in 2002, I read about a fellow Canadian cartoonistâ€™s experience bringing inventory down to the United States for a convention and how a certain bureaucratic process prevented him from taking his books on the flightâ€¦ which resulted in missing the flight and missing out on the convention altogether.
Trying to learn from Stephenâ€™s experience when I printed Cigarro & Cerveja: Round 1 and was heading for the San Diego Comic-Con in 2003, I avoided carrying the books with me for the flight and shipped a box of books with a parcel service instead. I did some research and found that I was able to have the parcel delivered to a Customer Center in San Diego where it would be held for pick-up. All the declaration papers would be filled out before shipping it and there would be very little chance that it would influence my flight. Everything went smoothly.
