We are amateur cartoonists. We've never done this before so please lower your expectations. At least the price is right. We try to find humor in our daily challenges, our annoyances or just things that we find funny in our daily lives in the retail real estate industry. We try not to take ourselves too seriously. Accordingly, we may on occasion try to make light of things that just aren't very funny or maybe even offend some people. If we ever cross the line in your mind, please give us a shout. We just aim to make you smile. If we generate more smiles than groans, cringes, head scratches or blank stares, we will feel as though we've succeeded.

If we get enough positive feedback we'll try to generate a new cartoon every couple of weeks.

(NOTE: Readers of our comic blog are free to share, copy or use our cartoons, we only ask that you attribute any public use to Linear Retail Properties with a link to our website
