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.

* NeverSpeakIllOfTheDead: When [[http://joshreads.com/?p=11816 Bil Keane]], creator of ''ComicStrip/TheFamilyCircus'', died in 2011, Josh was very somber, recalling the era when the strip was a lot edgier, and how the man himself [[SelfDeprecation had a great sense of humor about all the parodies of his work]]. Even the comments section has nothing but respect for the man, everybody agreeing that their mocking was in good jest, and that despite how unfunny many may have found the comic, every single commentor still respected him as a cartoonist and human being.
