Christo's sister's name is Marina, for anyone who's still wondering.
In addition to looking at a site redesign, the idea has been thrown around about a Pictures of You forum of some sort. With all the discussion that's been going on in the comments lately, it's been suggested that something more interactive might not be a bad idea, but I wasn't sure the audience had grown yet to a size that would make it make sense. I put another question to you all, then, is how many readers would be interested in a Pictures of You forum?
Also, when you get a chance (by which I mean right now) you should head over and check out Tara Tallan's comic Galaxion. She's a fellow Canadian and it's not Shuster Award nominated for nothing!
A forum would be sweet! With all the twists and turns the story's been taking lately, I'd love to get on a forum and rant about it. Also, had no idea YOU were a Canadian. Should've known though- seems like all the good webcomics are written by you guys!
dun dun dunnnn
I particularly like Patrick's reactions and how he isnt really pulling an "I told you so" yet she acts like he is..
And for a forum.. As someone mentioned before... If we can keep the comments too then It would be sweet, cause personally i liked how (of most web comic i read) is one of the only ones that readers can rant a little (or a lot) right underneath, vs. having to open another tab, link etc.
I'm not a forum type either. I've read this comic since it started and this (I believe) is also my first comment, and it's likely to be my last. I love your comic, incidentally. I'm just not a forum type, as are a lot of people, looking at these comments, I think.
That said it was a lot easier than expected to comment here - I expected to have to leave my email address and my website and a captcha and everything...! (guess we'll see what happens on the next screen. If I do have to leave those details I'm not sure I'll bother...).
Thanks, anyway, man. I'm not a gushing complimentary type but I'm really do love this comic.
I wouldn't mind a small forum, perhaps where we can discuss the webcomic, but Forums tend to get spammed a lot so if, I would make a small one with a high concentration on your webcomics, and as less forum-spam-threads as possible (except perhaps for the exchange of other good webcomics)
I'm not much of a forums person, but if some people want to have more off topic conversations that'd be a good place to organize it. I prefer the comments on each strip as they are. Also, would running a forum be more work for you? I'd rather you spend your "Pictures of You" time making more wonderful comics :)
The forum I had before was a woefully ill-conceived stunt on the part of someone who was too new to webcomics and internet culture at large to realize how unused it would be. The numbers are bigger now, by a factor of 10 or more. I'm not sure another one at this point would have much of a different fate, but it's been suggested so I thought I'd float the idea. If it happened, I wouldn't be the one running it, I'd just pop in and talk when I had time, post news and other stuff, maybe run a writing workshop or something.
