Happy 1 year Anniversary JW crew!
It sure hasn't felt like a year as a viewer, though I did start reading late November. Congrats again, love the shady dude with the maws.

I voted for Corey Feldman, but he launched a crazy-effective political campaign against you at the last second.

Hurrah for coming full circle

Comment by Sethers (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 17:49

I saw the page and at first though "What? Something's wrong with the upload it took me back to page one!".

Somehow, after reading dozens of comics over the years and forgetting about more than half of them, this one has become the one I most, if not the only, look forward to reading every week.

Keep up the good work and all that jazz.

Oh man, thank you so

Comment by Ananth Fri, 10/02/2009 - 01:43

Oh man, thank you so much! :D

Comment by DisposablePal (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 17:58

It's amazing to think that it's been a year since you guys started. In a single year you guys have become my favorite webcomic. I love the new page. As usualy the writing and art are both superb. Keep up the good work.

Wow, thank you! You're too

Hey guys! I've been a reader for a while, but this is my first time commenting. I just wanted to give a big congratulations and a "thank you" for working so hard to provide this awesomely epic comic! I got to say, it provides the highlights of my week!

I've been with you guys from the beginning, and I can't quite believe that it's been a year!

Good to see that you're still going strong!

awesome :D

Comment by kai (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 18:36

it's hard to believe it's been only one year 0_o in that time I went from clicking a link on Applegeeks because I liked Ananth to "HOLY SHIT MY FAVORITE ARTIST AND WEBCOMIC FOREVER <3"
congratulations on 100 and 1 year ^^

A year? Really?

Comment by TheHYBIRD (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 19:09

100 Years and 1 Comic since Johnny Wander- Wait... That didn't sound right.

100 Comics and 1 Year since Johnny Wander started. I've been reading since day 1 and enjoyed every page. Congrats guys. Here's to all the more years and more comics to come!

Wow I didn't realize it was

Comment by Lindz (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 19:18

Wow I didn't realize it was 100 comics also. Happy one year!


Comment by Malj (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 19:21

That year sure went quickly. X_x

100 comics and I still frantically mash F5 on TuTh. Easily my favorite webcomic!.... and I read like, nine of them.

Keep it up, guys! :)

Comment by Sarah (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:08

Congrats on 100 comics and Happy Anniversary! I can't believe it's already been a year since I started reading JW, time sure does fly. :]

Keep it up guys! Looking forward to the many upcoming comics! <3


Comment by ChristineA (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:24

On a very successful year of comic-ing. :D Here's to many more as well!!

Congratulations and thanks

Comment by Chelsea (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:37

Congratulations and thanks for the laughs. :)

One Year already.

Comment by Joe (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:41

Congratulations on the comic's first birthday! I've been reading since the beginning, and I can't wait to see what's coming up.

What I like best about this comic is how laid back it is, and how everyone can relate to almost every strip, be it getting caught in the subway doors, moving up and down several flights of stairs, burning food in the oven or waking up with a sunburned ear. I enjoy reading everyone's comments and personal stories about the current strip almost as much as I love the comic itself.

That's another thing, too. I'm incredibly comfortable talking away in this wonderful space down here. It's not something I regularly do for the other webcomics I read, but it feels like I know you guys, so it's a lot easier. I love that about JW.

Once I get over my inexplicable urge to steal Ananth's hat or sling Yuko over my shoulder, I'm sure I'll pop up at a con to meet you face to face. Until then, it's probably best that I stay on this side of the screen.

That's one of the highlights

Comment by Ananth Fri, 10/02/2009 - 01:47

That's one of the highlights for us too, the fact that people relate their personal stories to us after reading the comics. I try to reply to as many people as I can, but rest assured that we read every single comment on every single post! We love to hear stories. :)


Comment by Steph (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:50

Congrats guys! I started reading JW a little over half a year ago and I must say it is definetly one of my favorite webcomics. Looking forward to the new adventures and shorts! Happy anniversary ^-^

a whole year!

Comment by rejectedlogic (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 20:51

In celebration, I shall eat a banana!

WOO! Congrats, you guys!

Comment by RikaNeko (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:01

WOO! Congrats, you guys! You're all amazing as usual~.

(And is that man Ananth in disguise?! Or is it just Johnny Wander?)

Love the prose.

That is future Ananth. And

Comment by Ramiel (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:24

That is future Ananth. And you still can't see his eyes!

Well, just one, enough to PEW PEW lasers

That's no ordinary PEW PEW

Comment by Christopher (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:51

That's no ordinary PEW PEW laser, that's a Mikuru(Ananth) Beam!

Congrats on 1 year of JW you guys rock! ^_^ Looking forward to another year of awesomeness!

It's actually Odin. :)

Comment by Ananth Fri, 10/02/2009 - 01:48

It's actually Odin. :) Huugin and Muunin are perched on him. 


Comment by Christopher (not verified) Fri, 10/02/2009 - 02:50

Still badass Ananth! Future you could be a stand-in for Odin ^_^

Aw shucks!

Comment by Dani B (not verified) Mon, 10/05/2009 - 22:47

I'll start by saying congratulations! This comic is one of my favorites and is always at the very top of my suggestion list.

I'm a little disappointed at my riddle skills though... I thought the man was a tree!

I'm a fan of Nordic mythology though, so it's neat to see something that's usually so obscure (and awesome) where I wouldn't expect it.



Comment by Anon (not verified) Mon, 01/04/2010 - 04:43

I KNEW IT! Awesome. I was wondering if someone else would get that.

Wow, has it only been a

Comment by Andy (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:47

Wow, has it only been a year? I've been reading since some link at Applegeeks... I can't remember if it was for the very first comic or not. But I've been reading ever since, and Yuko's art is a delightful part of every day. :3


Comment by Toasty (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:50

Congrats to you for hitting the 1-year mark! The comic is totally boss, so I tip my hat to you! Here's to many more Year anniversaries~!


Comment by DJ (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 21:57

It's been a year already? I remember when this started! Doing great you two.

This has to be one of the fastest growing comics I've seen to date. (though that was expected with two internet famous peoples names on it.)

Good luck and good cheers for the upcoming years!

Happy Anniversary~

Comment by djSARS (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 22:00

May you illustrate the funnies of everyday living for many years to come~


Comment by Novarri (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 22:20

Honestly, I'm surprised it's ONLY been a year. I only just recently discovered this webcomic, and I assumed it'd been around for a long time. But, in that case, I'm looking forward to another year (and many more after) of awesome.

And happy comicversary!

A year!

Comment by The Limit-Breaking Cat (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 22:56

And they're still just as good as when I started reading! Keep it up, guys! I hope I can see your panel next year. By some stroke of bad luck, I had to miss both Comic-Con and Otakon. I had been planning on attending both... And no, Gonta freaking out comics really don't get old! I love that cat.

Haha, I'm glad to hear that

Comment by Ananth Fri, 10/02/2009 - 01:50

Haha, I'm glad to hear that Gonta comics haven't gotten old yet. I've tried to take it easy on them in case we were reaching a saturation point. 

And Many More!

Comment by Joe D (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 22:59

Here's to continued success, laughs, and artistic experimentation!

I can't believe it's been a

Comment by Joseph (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 23:00

I can't believe it's been a year already. Wow. Congratulations on a very successful first year run, and I hope there are many, many more to come.

This is seriously my favorite comic on the net.


Comment by halcy (not verified) Thu, 10/01/2009 - 23:16

Only a year? It felt like way longer~

This comic has been pretty great from the start, I'm glad you're still around. Congratulations on reaching this milestone.
