What I want to see is the responses of people who took this seriously. That would be a hoot.
"Think you're cute, huh?"
"I'm freaking adorable. Especially with the raccoon face I've got going on here."

If we moderators have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but googled here
While these banners did appear.
And this weak and idle link,
No more yielding but stiff drink,
Members, do not reprehend:
if you pardon, we will mend:
And, as I am an honest Payne,
If we have unearned fame
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
We will make amends ere long;
Else the Payne a liar call;
So, good night unto you all.
Give us your hands, if we be friends,
And Priscillie shall restore amends.

Good one, Priscellie!  This made me laugh out loud and grin from ear to ear.    ;D

As funny as that would be, it would be a violation of their privacy.  No can do! :D

Did you all enjoy our little April Fool's Day prank yesterday?  We posted a "press release" detailing a series of absurd changes for the "Fool Moon" graphic novel and announcing a new spinoff series: "Li'l Harry Adventures."  Sharp-eyed fans may have also noticed that the "Ghost Story" cover art in the Jim-Butcher.com header was replaced by a photo of Nicholas Cage in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," and the legend on Harry's tombstone was swapped with a "Buffy" reference: "He Saved The World A Lot."

Don't worry, it was all a joke!  We have no intention of deviating from the source material.  The whole Dynamite Entertainment graphic novel team remains committed to reproducing Jim's stories as faithfully as possible.

You can read the REAL press release here.  Issue #1 of "Fool Moon" hits stores this Wednesday, and we're so excited for you to see Chase Conley's fabulous art that Dynamite has provided a ten-page preview!  Find the comics shop nearest you at comicshoplocator.com/, or order a copy online through DynamiteEntertainment.com.

We hope you all had a fun and safe April 1st!

If you missed the joke yesterday, you can still see it here.
Discuss it here.

Can you by any chance post the changed banner, for people who didn't get to see it yesterday? Thanks! :D

I just read this and almost had a moment of exploding until I got to the bit about changing Murphy to being Latina. Then my brain went "Heeeeey now -" and I remembered that yesterday was April Fool's.  ;D  Brilliant joke, Pris and everyone else involved.

I forgot it was April 1th and cried at what they were doing to my Dresden.  Sniff. Sniff.
