Webcomic: Special delivery to wreak havoc on cartoonists’ mental capabilities


Is that a stork flying over the Featherstone Inn? 

“It’s a Shore Thing” will be taking a brief hiatus over the next week as a special delivery is made to a lucky family in North Lower Bayheightsville – ours. 

Kristen and I are expecting our first child, so once we’ve had our fill of diapers and vomit, we’ll return with all new strips. Until then, pull up a chair and rummage through previous episodes of “It’s a Shore Thing” at

Be back soon! 
– Kristen and Rob


About It’s a Shore Thing

After the death of Wooster Greatshanks Featherstone III, the Featherstone family (Dan, Penelope and daughter Piper) packed up their bags and moved from the Philly suburbs down the Shore to take over the family business – the Featherstone Inn.

Nestled on the beach of the scenic Shore town of North Lower Bayheightsville, Dan and Penelope struggle with post-Sandy repairs and a lack of business as Piper sees adventure (and sometimes ghosts) around every corner of the 100-year-old bed & breakfast.
