So, I have a few things to announce.
First: pacing issues. While this story arc has only gone on for 16-or-so strips, I realize it seems longer since you guys are reading it on a twice weekly schedule. We're looking into speeding things up a touch.
Cory has created a poster for the Mario Marathon 5 charity drive, which is basically a bunch of people sitting around playing Mario in order to raise cash for Child's Play. People who contribute get entered into a raffle, and the winner gets the poster along with some other goodies.
You might have seen that there's another comic running today called Blue Rose of Illium. It's a short comic based on Mass Effect 3 with art by previous Critical Miss contributor, Henry Huang. Whether or not we do more comics in a similar vein is in entirely up to the response from you readers. So if you like the comic, let people know.
My fellow Escapist contributor, Elisa "LeeLee" Scaldaferri, has flown the coop and is in the process of moving her comic Name Game over to its own site. Working alongside her has been an absolute pleasure, and both Cory and I wish her the best of luck with her comic and whatever else she decides to do.
