    The current format for your website has a problem and the images in the section Related Cartoons shows it, if you look carefully.

    I got your email notifying me of your new cartoon. I clicked on the link and viewed the cartoon, “The Road”. Below, the first cartoon in Related Cartoons is”Kick the Can”. I clicked on that. I was taken to the page with that cartoon. However, part of the image on the right was truncated so I couldn’t read all of the text in the balloon. I was able to find out what it was by clicking on the image and dragging it, which displays a somewhat transparent version, but readable.

    In other words, the images displayed in Related Cartoons are shown as roughly square, but the cartoons are actually rectangular, AND and the full-size version is displayed in the same proportions as the thumbnail (truncated).

    It doesn’t particularly matter if the thumbnails are square, but you really should display the full-size images in their entirety.

    I measured “The Road”, which is displayed at 490×371 pixels (on my computer) and is the same size when downloaded, but “Kick the Can” is displayed at 500×435, however, when downloaded to my computer is 576×436.

    How about making the full-size images all the same regardless of how one gets to them?

    I changed templates about a month ago and now some earlier cartoons don’t fit when called in. I fixed the problem on this one by resizing the original Can O’ Debt cartoon.

    If you find other cartoons with the same prob click the image for a full size version. And please leave a message if you have time.
    Thanks for calling this to my attention. – Chip
