I’ve thought hard about this, and this wasn’t an easy decision. A lot of people have said I can’t keep up with the workload, and I seriously wonder if I can. I’m a better artist than I was a year ago, easily, but I still got a long way to go, and lord knows I could do a better job at keeping schedules.
It also doesn’t help I have the book coming out in March and am working on my own personal website as we speak. And my hours at my job have increased. And I have other projects in the works with friends and professionals alike.
…But for what I want to do with this comic, this is the only logical choice. I hated last year how slow my stories moved, and this would easily double the speed at which they move. Not to mention there’s some more elaborate stuff I want to do that doesn’t fit into the typical horizontal strip format; a regular full page Sunday strip (which is also coming) would solve that. And to put it bluntly, I want more people to read this site. And that’ll only happen when I offer more content. This way, I’ll have content every day.
So can I do this? Well, I guess we’re going to find out next monday, aren’t we?
