    (partly reposted from my blog)
    The end? Well sort of , more on that in a moment. After 100 weekly strips, I thought it’d be a good time to give the strip an overhaul. I still haven’t gotten things exactly as I want, but it’s getting there.

    Using Comicpress(a great wordpress theme designed especially for webcomics), I’ve spiffed things up with some cool new features, such as:

    - RSS feed (you guys have been asking for this!)
    - Comments for each comic and blog post (now you can easily tell me what you think!)
    - Search Function

    I’ll also be updating soon with new standees and new wallpapers which everyone’s been asking for. I’m also thinking about a fan section to show some of the great fan art and gifts I get!

    Now that I’ve wowed you all with the fancy new diggs, the surprise news! Hopefully it’s not bad news heh… If you haven’t figured it out from strip #100, Lil Formers will no longer be ONLY Transformers-centric. To keep things fresh I’m expanding the scope to cover any type of geeky toy, cartoon, comic, sci-fi, anime, video game, etc property. After 100 TF strips, I’m a bit burnt out on the big bots. Doesn’t mean I will never do TF strips, but it will no longer be the sole driving force behind Lil Formers. I'll still continue to drop by TFW whenever I do a new TF-related strip (and hopefully TFW will still want to front-page the TF ones ;) 

    For simplicity sake, the strip will continue to be called ‘Lil Formers’ until the end of time, even though there won't always be any 'formers showing up heh. Hope everyone enjoys and supports the new direction, but if you NEED your TF fix, I’m still doing a page of TF gags in every issue of the Official Transformers Club Magazine.

    So yeah, let me know what you think of the new site, new direction, new functions and stay tuned for future Lil Formers news. Also big thanks to TFW, both the staff and the forum community. You guys spreading the word and supporting the strip are probably the biggest reasons for its success.

    Thanks everybody!

    Now you have to upgrade your comic strip and call it 'Lil Dudes'.

    Lol, so we have, the Smurfs, Skeletor, Slimer, Iron Man, the RX-78 Gundam, Michaelangelo, and Link (though if we're going for the 1980s versions of these guys, Link needs to have brown hair, before Japan Aryanized him. ;) ). Pretty cool, though maybe you just need a hiatus and wait for more TF material to come from. Or if interested, you can explore other non-G1 areas like BW, Armada, etc.

    Too bad Lil Formers as we know it has come to an end, you've made quality strips for a lot of time, so you need a well deserved rest. Will you continue to post every monday or will the schedule change?
