Points to be doled out to Lord Enigma, U_Queen, and WalkinonAirx3!

I'll do something with all this... eventually. But first, I should get around to renovating this place. What would you guys like to see in a website update?

After William McKinley won the presidential election in 1896, Hawaii's annexation to the U.S. was again discussed. The previous president, Grover Cleveland, was a friend of Queen Lili╩╗uokalani. McKinley was open to persuasion by U.S. expansionists and by annexationists from Hawaii. He met with three annexationists from Hawaii: Lorrin Thurston, Francis March Hatch and William Ansel Kinney. After negotiations, in June 1897, Secretary of State John Sherman agreed to a treaty of annexation with these representatives of the Republic of Hawaii.[41]

The treaty was never ratified by the U.S. Senate. Instead, the Newlands Resolution by both houses of Congress annexed the Republic to the United States and it became the Territory of Hawaii. Despite some opposition in the islands, the Newlands Resolution was passed by the House June 15, 1898, by a vote of 209 to 91, and by the Senate on July 6, 1898, by a vote of 42 to 21.

In 1900, Hawaii was granted self-governance and retained ╩╗Iolani Palace as the territorial capitol building. Despite several attempts to become a state, Hawaii remained a territory for sixty years. Plantation owners and key capitalists, who maintained control through financial institutions, or "factors," known as the "Big Five", found territorial status convenient, enabling them to continue importing cheap foreign labor; such immigration was prohibited in various states.
In the 1950s the power of the plantation owners was finally broken by descendants of immigrant laborers. Because they were born in a U.S. territory, they were legal U.S. citizens. The Hawaii Republican Party, strongly supported by plantation owners, was voted out of office. The Democratic Party of Hawaii dominated politics for 40 years. Expecting to gain full voting rights, Hawaii's residents actively campaigned for statehood.

In March 1959, Congress passed the Hawaii Admission Act and U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed it into law. (The act excluded Palmyra Atoll, part of the Kingdom and Territory of Hawaii, from the new state.) On June 27 of that year, a referendum asked residents of Hawaii to vote on the statehood bill. Hawaii voted 17 to 1 to accept. The choices were to accept the Act or to remain a territory, without the option of independence.[42][43][44] The United Nations Special Committee on Decolonization later removed Hawaii from the United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories.

After statehood, Hawaii quickly modernized via construction and rapidly growing tourism economy. Later, state programs promoted Hawaiian culture. The Hawaii State Constitutional Convention of 1978 incorporated programs such as the Office of Hawaiian Affairs to promote indigenous language and culture.

Your strip pages are perfect for the original style of the strip, but I don't think it gels well with the refined coloring style that you've come to use. More elements from that in the web layout and it'd be more cohesive.

hmm how about make layout similar to the comics coloring style? Could fit

Would filling the background with a bunch of speech bubbles with Duck's questions be too much of a spoil for the rest of the comics? You know, overlapping bubbles everywhere. And a soft colored background in the coloring style you use. Though then you'd probably have to put a frame on your comics...

Anyhow, the page is perfectly functional, the rest is just aesthetic. Though for some reason I like it when my comic pages allow me to go to the next comic by clicking on the current comic itself. Wink wink.

It's all fun and games until your boat gets flipped over by Question Duck

Call me crazy, but my teacher used a rubber duck in a pond to prove how perspective makes things look large -- Question Duck like that is a perfect example. xD
