"I have checked out your website, and you have a bright career to look forward to. Keep up the good work. I hope you pick up enough papers soon enough to make your strip a success. It looks like that shouldn't be too much of a problem." - Jim Toomey (of Sherman's Lagoon)

"Your strip looks great! Perseverance is paramount. Keep hitting the syndicates and you get there." - Dana Summers (of The Middletons)

"Your comic strip looks pretty good. I don't really have time for more than a quick look at things, but it seems better than most of the stuff people ask me to look at. Good luck with the syndicates!" - Bill Amend (of Foxtrot)

"Thanks, I'm glad you like the strip. I've had emails from people that relate because they're personal trainers, or cartoonists, or like chickens, but never all three! The trick is usually getting a reader to relate just one point. I checked out your site; looks great. Good luck with it.!" - Mike Belkin (of Unfit)

We like your comics. We like the one where Robin has a meteor crash through his nest the best!- Denavya, Jessy, and Ryan, Students at Edison Elementary School in Willoughby, OH

Hi!!! I am a turtle fan and now a huge Aford fan!!! I just love Aford! - Mars

I totally love the Aford comics that you make! I always get a few laughs out of that witty turtle, even when I'm in a bad mood! It's also a reeeely big releif to finally have some good, clean comics to laugh at. I just want to thank you for puittting these comics out. - Meredith

I was just surfing when I came upon your site. Coincidentally, I love comic strips and I'm simply awed by your strip. They're so funny and neatly drawn. You really captured their personality, especially Aford's southwestern uncle. I personally like Simon. Can't help but to laugh out loud in almost every strip. People here in our house are already giving me weird looks! I was having a bad day until now. I hope you continue to make Aford strips and upload your site regularly. I'll tell my friends about your site as well as our local paper. Thanks for sharing your humor and talent. And best wishes to you and your fiance. - April G.

Let me just say that you are amazing! I love turtles and when i found this comic i was amazed. - Kristina O.

I recently visited your web site and viewed your work. You have produced a very likable turtle guy, much better than what we saw in ' The Master of Disguise'. Congratulations on the success of your comic strip. I wish you the well for the future. - Curtis J.

I love the new website(very professional) and i think Aford is excellent, it certainly has progressed over the last two years and is of such a high standard now, im sure i dont need to tell you this but it seems to have got more (for want of a better word) classy and professional over that period, in both the art and the humour which has come on leaps and bounds, so congratulations on an excellent strip. i hope you get it syndicated soon. - James B.

Y'all got a great strip -- just stumbled into it. Of course I might be a bit pre-partial to it. I picked up the nickname "Turtle" when hiking. Thanks for the laughs from a slightly graying ex-bouncer, ex-linthead, Wally-World escapee, library Turtle.- William, The Library Turtle

I love how you draw, and i also love turtles. I'm so glad I found this awsome site! - Victoria

Being an avid turtle fan, I have to say this is one of the greatest comics (not being biased). You've got great talent and I hope it hits the local papers here soon! If not, I'll just have to deal with checking the website. Keep up the good work and thanks for the laughs!!.- Kristen T.
