Joel, I love the new direction. I look forward to each new comic. I appreciate that you are "exposing" more of your personal life in comic form and with pics of your family life. That can be a tough call to make but I believe you are doing it well.
Also, that's a Treo isnt' it? Yeah.. I'm suddenly nostalgic for a resistive touch screen and super-slow mobile internet. Good times...
Turns out that was it exactly. Chrome didn't show any comments at all. Probably a plugin causing it.
I don't know if it's good, but I like it!. I try not to speak for the universe as a whole. Or whole-nothing, or whatever.
I would call that a growing unease. A lurking discontent. Something something sadnes..
I had to stop and think too. I remember clearly a time when I was following the comic and listening to the podcast before the experiment began. Seems like yesterday.
I have one criticism I will share and only since I believe you are open to it. If no one agrees I am fine with shutting up about it forever.
I do not like your photo/comic things. Yes, there have been a couple that I genuinely found funny. Yes I do read every one of them anyway. My problem isn't the concept but more that they always seem so full of inside jokes. It seems like you make them FOR the people in the photos or that were at the Con or cruise or whatever. I always feel outside of them.
I don't mean to say don't make them. I just don't think they appeal to the mass audience of a typical comic. I take it you know that but when comics are not plentiful, these stand out as being the main attraction, not side or bonus content.
I agree with this as well. I know when to expect QC, XKCD, PA, etc. I loyally load your page once a day to *see* or more often *hope* there is something there.
BINGO! I enjoy that perspective as well. It doesn't need to go ALL that way but a smattering of it would be great. It would be a return to form as well. You would be writing what you KNOW and EXPERIENCE. True stuff is the funniest stuff!
Yes, a podcast, that sounds like a thing that once happened. It seems an eternity since I heard tales of ass merkins and nudie cards. Any podcasting would suffice but this sounds like an excellent idea. I am always down for Turtle-talk.
