Over time, the blog has developed a great deal of media attention as the authors of many comics have discovered it. Some comic artists or writers are even fans of the blog, including Chris Browne (''ComicStrip/HagarTheHorrible''), Mark Tatulli (''Lio'', ''Heart of the City''), Francesco Marciuliano (''[[ComicStrip/SallyForthHoward Sally Forth]]'' and also the web comic ''Medium Large''), Ed Power (''ComicStrip/MyCage''), "Jumble Jeff" Knurek (the ''Jumble'' puzzle/comic), James Allen (Jack Elrod's assistant/successor on ''ComicStrip/MarkTrail''), and Bob Weber, Jr. (''ComicStrip/SlylockFox''). Marciuliano, who is also registered on the boards, even created a logo for the site (and the image for this page) during a major site redesign in early 2010. Also, Bob Weber has actually used the blog to sell official ''Shylock Fox'' merchandise directed at the adult fans of his strip.
