Wow this is a well illustrated page. Theres so much going on right now I ask myself "whats next" after every new page lol. Im actually really into your work Mr. Twist. I would always hate to see less each week, but reading your comic is a priviledge that we endulge in, so you do what you have to do. Its your choice ofcourse.
...thought that you meant only monday and friday, and i honestly started worrying about a few things... your sanity, for one, mostly because of exactly how much PAIN your fans would dish out to you if you made us wait even more for the drama
Monday - Friday
Would be really nice to see. The question is, are you up for it?
Please do not take this as a shot at your talent or ability to do so as it is not, but as both writer and artist for this comic, are you going to have the time and capacity for it as it would be a very rigorous schedule?
Again, I am not saying that you cannot do it, I just do not wish to see you burn yourself out trying to keep up. Like any 5 day a week job, it can get stressful if you immerse yourself too much into it.
The fact is, as you stated during PoYD, that it takes many hours for you to put together a page. If you go to a 5 day update, you will most likely be working 6-7 days to keep up (if my math is correct), and your sanity and well-being is more important than a 5 day/week schedule.
I would still like to see a 5 day update. Man, Patrick is either going to punch out Devon, or his dad. OR his dad is going to say, "What do you mean? What happened?"
I would be rather shocked if he was so ignorant to the fact, but going back to the chapter where she was talking to him on the phone "http://picturesofyou.smackjeeves.com/comics/894806/3-ii-06-bruises-6/ " she never really says what happened. Mind you, we kind of appear in the middle of the conversation and have no idea how it started, but it is still a possibility.
if you mean a Mo/Fri schedule, you would be risking a can of djihad by righteously infuriated readers. After all... you got us all addicted in the first place. You wouldn't be any better than the next corner drug pusher...
How about a Monday through Friday schedule... you'd still have the weekend off to nurse the blisters on your sore fingers and maybe get a chance to see daylight. Rachitic fingers wouldn't do us any good. :)
In all seriousness. This is a great piece of art you keep creating. When do you finally get around to publishing it? I'd sure buy it.
Monday THROUGH Friday? I don't think my body could handle it. As it is, I often stay up faaaar too late waiting for my M/W/F updates! (Is it it up yet? Damn. Is it up yet? Damn. Is it up yet? Yea! Four hours to sleep. Damn.)
Well, and now?
As expected, you're doing a great job! The tension is building up, the characters are charging and the commotion growing... The tap is ready to be opened. Well, so much for the christmas eve.
See that look Patrick's dad is giving him in the last panel? I think we're about to witness that the old man also has a violent streak to him. My money's on Patrick getting clocked, then the siblings realizing why Devon got invited in the first place: him and Dad are cut from the same cloth...
Also, Mr. Twist, M-F updates would be most welcome, although I wouldn't want you to burn yourself out!
what about mom?
I feel like there's a reason mom was included in the first panel. Even if Mel never explicitly stated what happened, there had to have been clues that mom picked up on. And being a mom, I wouldn't be surprised if she was the one to diffuse the situation, while avoiding violence in her home.
To be perfectly honest, I would be very pleased if Pictures of You updated everyday...it would be a bright spot in a fairly drab and dreary week BUT that is not to say I'm unhappy with the schedule now. To be perfectly honest, yes I am always on the edge of my seat waiting to see what will happen but truthfully I am just happy you update at all.
So many webcomics don't even offer update schedules, and sometimes go months (or hell years) without so much as a peep...Pictures of You has a fantastic plot/story, great characters, and top notch art..AND updates regularly, you Mr.Twist...are a rare and special breed (: So..
tl;dr I'd be pleased with whatever the schedule is, so long as there isn't a cease in updates completely.
Also on this page, Patrick..look at you go, so much rage. Also, am I the only one who thinks that perhaps the father is misconstruing what Mel is saying? That he thinks she is asking for him to make Patrick leave?
Don't do it
As much as I love PoY, I have to question the business wisdom behind mon-fri. Unless you have done your homework and you are sure that ad revenue will increase at least proportionally to your added workload, I think there's a serious chance of disappointment. If PA is any measure for success (and I think it is), then your update schedule is the sweet spot. Keep it up!
I actually held my breath while reading this because I was so freaked out.
Twist, oh my god. You're going to die if that douchebag touches Mel again.
HOW CAN YOU ALLOWW ITT.
Mon-Fri schedule would be awesome...It would help keep me into the story. As long as it's not so stressful anyway. o.o
As long as they're good pages (What Stubby G said)
Monday Thru Friday? Awesome.
But for something completely different: I still haven't managed to adjust to Patrick's new hair. It's just so out of place on him, especially with his ofttimes dour demeanor.
I'd love if Pictures of You updated more often! But your art seems fairly advanced to do a full comic *every day* without burning out or the art suffering. If you update more often, that would be fantastic. If not, I'll still click by every day to see if you have updated or not! :D
