Just wanted to catch up to the loyal readers and apologize for the slackness of reviews. Economic times hit us hard, you know … even the ones who’ve got jobs. My time’s been occupied working overtime in the real world. The money’s nice, but free time is at a premium. Sadly, I haven’t been able to read or review webcomics lately. (It’s a rather time consuming hobby when you think about it.) I’ll be lucky if I get anything done by Memorial Day.
Fortunately, Lost is off the air until next January and Smallville just ended its season. Seriously, that cuts down on extracirricular distractions … as long as the siren’s hypnotic allure of Enterprise reruns on the Sci-Fi Network doesn’t snag me. (Yeah, yeah … I watch some really awful TV shows.) I’m hoping to get my webcomic-reading mojo back come summer.
Thanks to all of you for coming by to check this site, by the way. Whether you love or hate this blog, your loyalty to webcomics is what keeps this site from devolving into non-comic content like certain other blogs (Websnark *cough* *cough*).
Parting thought: is there a way to get webcomics into comic book shops? Outside of putting together print versions of webcomics, I mean. Free Comic Book Day was the first time in a while I’ve visited the comic book store. It’s a weird atmosphere: more a club than a store. There’s an awful lot of potential in getting fans of the pamphlet to check in online. Have a couple laptops set up with links to store favorites, perhaps?
