“This is Thomas’s great achievement: he doesn’t turn his penguins into people; he turns us into penguins. Thomas lets his handsome, tuxedoed, adult birds, and fuzzy, adorable juveniles, speak to us, sometimes with humor, sometimes with sadness, about the seriousness of global warming. Because if we don’t see it yet, they do. “And they know what to say about it, if only we will swim with them a little way, and try to understand. So flop onto your belly, slide over the ice, and dive into this collection of strips from Thomas’s ongoing webcomic, “Pole-The Comic Strip with Penguins”. It will melt your heart.” (From Jennifer Hayden’s Introduction)
Thomas Baehr created the strip POLE in 2005. In the same year the New York Press published it for the first time. Since then, the penguins appeared in newspapers, magazines, books, and the internet in the USA and in Europe. “Make Guano Not War” is the first collection.

I participate with my strip POLE in this years Cartoon Contest of The Cartoonist Studio. The winner will get to run their comic on the GoComics.com website. Yes, I’m aware of Scott Kurtz’ and Brad Guigar’s opinion about this contest. But I took part in the contest anyway. Hey, you never know, right!?!

I hope you will find one minute to support me and vote for POLE.

I am Contestant 184 and voting started February 6th 2012. Everybody is allowed to vote, but there will also be a jury. To vote please go to http://www.thecartooniststudio.com/vote or click here. Unfortunately, you have first to sign in and become a Cartoonist Studio member. But it is free and easy to do, and you’re aloud to vote every six hours. To find the right strip, just type POLE into the search bar.

The contest will be a 10 week marathon where you will get a different POLE strip every week – as long as I will receive enough votes to move on to the next round. Thank you so much. Your vote/s is/are highly appreciated!!!

As a big San Francisco Giants fan I have to admit that the season could have ended better as it actually did. But so what? That's the way it is. Last year, they won it all.
But as a baseball fan I have to admit that the sport had a great September with an awesome last week, and a very exciting October (so far). What else do you want? (Getting rid of that stupid DH rule in the American League!?!!!)
Well, ask Hal Steinbrenner, the Yankees' managing general partner. The NYTimes (10/08/2011) reported him saying: "I personally share in our fans' disappointment that this season has ended without a championship."
You know what? Just give the trophy to the Yanks and let the other teams play some ball. That way everybody will finally have some fun. Even Yankee fans.

I'm not running for president. Nono.
But I decided to put my website penguinsforfree.com with my strip POLE - The Comic Strip with Penguins up for voting at Topwebcomics.com. As of today in my first month up there, I got 43 votes, which put me up on spot 656 in the ranking. Could be worse ... but to make it better you can do me a favor and vote for POLE here every 24 hours!!!

Thanks so much!
