I have written novels, actually. Some of them were even worth reading.

I have some to the realisation that I would probably read just about anything you saw fit to present to us. while I like not having to wait to long for a an update, I fear that you may be spoiling us, by posting a page eveyr day, the story will run it's course to quickly at this rate, and then I'll feel disapointed that there is no more.

Thank you for your dedication, Silly Bob. I hope you enjoy my new comic, Hitler Clubs Baby Seals And Litters. There isn't a lot to worry about when it comes to the end of this particular story, since the full 10 book story is plotted to somewhere in the neighbourhood of 16-1700 pages, 400 of which are already scripted and I think 30 are already drawn. So, this one will be going for a while. Even so, the daily updates will end with the 10th page of the prologue, after which I hope to update every two or three days.

I'm still astonished that you've been able to put out so many quality pages, and that the story is going to run for 400 of them :)

I wouldn't be surprised if Smacktalk contacted you first for an interview or review :)

Ah the nostalgia...
I feel it so deeply well in this page.
The narration is so well written that now I'm starting to miss the good old days of my life when I'm only 17 years old. O_O

Too much text
Webcomics or "graphic novels" are a visual medium as well as a textual one. Readers of webcomics who are expecting to read a webcomic will skim right over big chunks of text. Unless they're in a novel (in which case they're called paragraphs), walls of text put readers off. Relying more on dialogue and what is unsaid will give more emotional impact.
Hope this helped.

Well, actually, not a help at all. For one thing, I reject outright the idea that comics have a maximum word count or that increased text is something reserved for novels. Also, I am fairly unconcerned with "readers of webcomics who are expecting to read a webcomic," whatever that means, and am more concerned with readers who want a good story. Considering what's out there, I would stop making this comic altogether before I would let the writing be dictated by a standard of other webcomics and the attention span of people who can't bear to read more than a sentence at a time. I take a lot of pride in the fact that my readers have a higher level of literacy than most webcomic audiences, and that I can confound expectations of what comics can be. This isn't a gag strip about video games and I don't ever want it to be mistaken for one.

Plus, this is the eighth page of a comic that is over 600 pages deep and three and a half years old, so the idea that you're addressing something new or even something that remains an issue today is, forgive me, a little ridiculous.

The text is beautiful. it creates the internal images that the blue picture is a cool lingering afterimage of. It brings the pictures to life.

Also this is within Peter's thoughts. And Peter is thinking too much at the moment. Andy said that around three strips ago. Of *course* there's a lot of words!
