The big squeeze
Once upon a time, I would pass up a lot of neat comic ideas because they were just too big to cram into a standard-sized four-panel strip. But then at some point I remembered that this is the internet, not a newspaper. I don't have to cram my ideas into four panels. I can make my comics as long as they need to be, and all it costs is time, ink, bandwidth, and sleep deprivation!
The golden rule of serialization is that every individual installment has to be independently satisfying. And sometimes I have to make my comics longer to achieve that. But it has to be done. Otherwise, you wind up with Mary Worth. (Apologies to anyone who likes Mary Worth.)
In other news, it looks like it will be a couple more days before the posters can go on sale. I'm still in the process of acquiring the supplies I need to package and mail the suckers!
