—SUPPORT THIS CARTOON: subcribe to Sparky’s List as if Sparky’s life depends on it! Because it kind of does!  You’ll get to read the cartoon a day before it goes live anywhere, and you’ll get exclusive access to my weekly newsletter, featuring behind-the-scenes notes about each cartoon and various supplementary ramblings. And you’ll be helping to keep this cartoon sustainable in a media environment that grows more challenging by the day.

There are multiple ways to receive the newsletter. Pricing varies slightly due to platform minimums, but the content is the same however you choose to receive it.

Mailchimp. This is the old school newsletter I started up before there were any other options, sent directly to your inbox. It’s the lowest-priced version, but you won’t have access to archives.

— Patreon. Same as the Mailchimp version, but on the Patreon site, with a growing archive.

I’m done with Twitter.  I am mostly on Bluesky these days:

I’m also on Instagram, but kind of sporadically: @realtomtomorrow

Facebook: my facebook account is run by someone else, purely to push out comics. I never look at it, or check messages there.

— Don’t forget to visit the online store for t-shirts, signed prints plush Sparkys, enamel pins and more!

— Here’s my Amazon Wish List, since I always enjoy an unexpected package to brighten up the lonely tedium of my existence. Just saying.
