Fun and Interesting Fact For The Day: "dagurerreotype" (sic) is a real-life word, an early method of photography named after its French creator, Louis Jacques Mande Daguerre. If you thirst for more information on the subject, you can consult the experts here. As for my invented-life, as detailed in W. M. Sonnenberg's guest strip a while back, Rosemary owns a daguerreotype of herself and her Aunt Eva. And yes, the man who invented the process was also called Daguerre. His first name, however, was "Willi". And he wasn't French.

ACK! I almost be forgetting! Today be International Talk Like A Pirate Day! Arr!


Patreon 21st Jun 2021, 10:06 AM
 I have a Patreon account. If you want to encourage the MoE to continue, please consider using it to toss me a buck or so a month. In order to encourage all of you, I'm going to try and post some extra stuff there for subscribers. Not sure what exactly, but to start with, I posted a full-color version of the strip for June 21, 2021, so you can see Wkirp's outfit in all its glory.

ComicGenesis tech problems 19th Jun 2021, 8:08 AM
Once again, the ComicGenesis update system has broken, and I can't load new comics there. We'll see if it staggers back to life one more time, or if this is finally it.

Extra navigation feature 2nd May 2021, 10:48 PM
Following up on a visitor request, I belatedly learned today that ComicFury does let you engage keyboard-based strip-archive navigation. Which is to say, from now on, hopefully, you can page ahead and back in the MoE archive by clicking on your "<-" and "->" keys instead of mouse-clicking on the Previous and Next buttons.  Tho I guess if you're a smartphone or tablet user, you might not even have those keys. Are there a lot of you out there? Would it help if I adjusted them to something different?

Name a character for cash 19th Mar 2021, 6:29 PM
Here's your chance for Mansion of E immortality: if you toss me $5 via either Ko-Fi or the PayPal email address "", you can name any one of the new characters who appear in the March 19, 2021 strip, yes, including the dog. Doesn't have to be your name, but it can be if you want. First come first serve, and I reserve the right to reject or alter submissions to make them fit into the canon. (ie, Nomes don't have human names, but if you choose "Fred", the recipient might be the "Freid" or somesuch.)
