We miss you Johnny!

We do! Did you see how the Jets played last night without you?

Man ... I can't believe Winnipeg Jets management did this to me. A guy pours his heart and soul into a comic strip, orders 1,000 ADVENTURES OF JOHNNY ODUYA t-shirts, and banks his whole future on the success of this new enterprise ... and the next thing you know the lead character is traded to the Black Hawks.

Reaction to the trade has been mostly positive, with a 2nd and 3rd round draft pick coming in return, while at the same time picking up another D-man off waivers to fill a spot on the roster. Yet, getting draft picks for a proven performer (feel free to debate how good the performance was) always seems like a step back when it happens.

We here at the Peanut would like to wish Johnny well in his new adventures in the Windy City, and we shall pick ourselves up off the ground, dust ourselves off, and figure out what our next time-wasting enterprise will be.

"Tim Stapleton vs. The World" has a ring to it.

Your comic was the first thing I thought of when I heard he'd been traded!

Too bad, I woulda bought one of those shirts :)

I'm going to have to donate those shirts to a third world country, just like the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 2011 Grey Cup Champions caps.

I second the 'your comic was the first thing I thought of...' comment.

There's always the possibility of doing a Clitsome comic...

Announcing my new comic: Here Clitty Clitty! (His real nickname by the way).
