George Takei Shared Break of Day

5 Aug

It’s not everyday when you get Mr. Sulu himself from Star Trek sharing my cartoons on Facebook.  So when he did last Friday, I was pleasantly surprised.

I guess I feel bad for not being a big Trekkie now (sorry about that, George).  It’s truly humbling that he would share such a commodity as my material to his 2,386, 262 Facebook followers.

I’ve had a good time reading the comments and got a couple of new fans from the exposure.  Awesome (thanks, new fans).  Now, if I can just get Eminem, Johnny Depp and that dolphin from Flipper to hop on board and share some Break of Day comics, I could start shooing off paparazzi.

So, what does such a share do for a comic?

Well, typically I get several “likes” and so-forth when I post my work up.  However, when they get exposed to the masses, that number can go up just a little bit.

Here’s a look at the comic from Friday, two hours later and then 48 hours later (right now).

Hope you enjoyed this cartoon as much as others.

Now, I need to go brush up on my Star Trek.

Above:  It was awhile until I actually realized it was shared, so here’s after about an hour.

Above: Aaaaand two hours.

Above:  Holy cow!  All the likes, shares and comments.  Never have I saw such a thing.  Well, except on Garfield’s Facebook.

    WooHoo! The President of the Internet knows your stuff!
    George’s post-trek career is much more entertaining, so don’t go crazy. You either like Star Trek, or you don’t.

      Actually you’re totally right. I like him on Howard Stern the most!

    Nice…did he share your post or the cartoon? If just the cartoon did he at least give you a link?

      Just the comic and unfortunately no link. I have my info on the comic but it’s not as effective as a link would’ve been. Oh well….

        DAMN HIM…doesn’t he know to provide link love.

    I know….I know. Now people that might want to be fans have to struggle to read the link. Can’t have it all I guess.

    I was thrilled to see it there, I knew the drawing style looked familiar, but I didn’t see the signature until just now! CONGRATULATIONS! 🙂

    […] Everything is kinda at a stand still.  One cool thing was George Takei from Star Trek shared one of my comics on his Facebook page in front of his 3 million plus fans.  It was pretty awesome.  What did it do?  Well, not much.  It’s not like I get royalties each time someone re-post it.  But, being exposed to those kind of numbers is a nice treat.  I wrote all about it HERE.
