The weather has been strange so far this spring, but we're hoping for a little less snow and a little more sun this month!

To celebrate Mom's day, we've posted our motherly matching game and our free egreets to send to your mom or mother-in-law.

We have written an extended biography for Duane Mitchell, Elizabeth's friend with the funny hair. To read it, visit Liz's character page, then scroll down and click Duane's name.

Want more chances to win FBorFW prizes? Like our Facebook page. Don't forget to try your luck at our Ned Search contest; we pick a new winner every week.

New interview: Ruth Graham of The Grindstone talks with Lynn about cartooning - a career that's not for the weak (and about a few other things as well).

"Farley and the Lost Bone" is now available as an enhanced iBook for iPads and other newer Apple devices. It contains animations; Lynn recorded the narration in February. Visit our News Bites page here for a link to the iTunes store where you can preview or purchase this iBook and find out more about the Farley Follows His Nose audiobook, also available from the iTunes shop.

This month's studio photo (below) features a very young Aaron in his Jolly Jumper enjoying (possibly) some special attention from Farley. Katie discovered this photo while going through materials for the treasury books and thought it would be fun to share.

Lynn will be a special guest this year at the San Diego International Comic Con. The con runs from July 12-15 and will be hosting plenty of talented artists.

We've been keeping you up to date on our progress with the Farley golf club cover; we're happy to report that we've found the right material and the initial sample shipment has arrived. We'll be making them available in our store soon; watch out for opportunities to win one through our website too! They're adorable and would also make a funny hand puppet.

We keep getting asked "How do I get FBorFW by email?" Universal Uclick offers two types of accounts on GoComics.com - paid (Genius) and free - and both allow you to get comics by email. Sign up for your free account here. You can also learn more about the difference between services and upgrade to Genius level if you wish.





This month's challenge: tell us how you feel about golf! We'll choose one winner to receive a golf club cover!
