You *should* make those old collections available. As yopu know it’s very easy to publish things nowadays without the evil publishers, though I understand graphics are a special challenge. I’m convinced you have a market among the sarcastic set. Check out xkcd’s recent collection. http://store.xkcd.com/xkcd/#xkcdvolume0
P.S. I hope you still lurk here …. your link above is 404’d.

I hung a framed treasured copy twenty years ago

I cut out the strip where he carries the American flag and found it in (and I am not making this up) a pamphlet that tells you how to solve the Rubick’s cube.

I still carry around one of the strips about the Sacastics Anon meeting. I wish you would bring it back! For those looking, you can get copy on Amazon.
Doonesbury doesn’t hold a candle to Downstown.

Not many people remember my comic strip anymore. There were actually four collections of Downstown published over time, but none of them are readily available anymore.

It was a delight. I see the gal Kristin above said something about a book. Is there a book of strips available somewhere?
