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?

    This may be awkward… I don’t ready any strips that update on weekends, you will be the first. Guess I get to read three strips every Monday!

    As a reader, this sounds fantastic. I love this story, and I love all the music references and jokes. But by all means, if the work load turns out to be too much, don’t force it. You’ll just burn yourself out.

    It’s very brave of you to make this jump. You can do it!
