“The Neighbours”

LKB71_TheNeighbours_WebSpeaking of pop culture references, you probably won’t find any of this funny if you don’t recognize the sitcom catchphrases spouted off by our heroes in panel 4. Even if you did, there’s still a chance that you didn’t find this funny at all, but there’s nothing I can do about that.

ITEM! Today’s strip marks the one year anniversary of Laura Knows Best! Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has supported this blog one way or the other. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, your support goes a long way in keeping me motivated to produce the best I can week in and week out. I should also give a big thanks to Laura herself who lets me record our lives for posterity with only the occasional grumble.

One of the snazzy features available on WordPress is a map that breaks down the visitors to the site by country. I think that one of the amazing things about a webcomic is the ability to reach out to a global audience, something that’s much harder to do hawking the traditional paper and staple variety. So, after 71 comics, here’s a glimpse of where Laura Knows Best has been seen worldwide:

Another jazzy WordPress feature is the ability to see what search terms people used to find the site. These can often be quite random, and I often wonder if the people searching these topics were disappointed with what Google found for them. Here’s a rundown of some of my favourite:

5) Webcomics eyepatch

4) Chikungunya jokes

3) Biological clock ticking comic strip

2) Toughlove Laura

1) Marriage night in bed in America

That’s it for this week’s special anniversary edition! Have a wonderful New Year!
