The actual time on this was low. Did the quality suffer? If I could do this pace for every comic then a weekly/bi-weekly with some bonus would be very doable.
Also, I got Scott McCloud's Making Comics. Like any good book I just powered through it in two days. The layout and style are great for conveying his message, and the wording is inviting and warm, not condescending or pigeonholing. More to the point, it gave really solid advice. Some I knew from my general work with art/graphics, some I had intuitively figured out, but, as he points out, it helps to be conscious about when things are going well. It was really a wonderful, view-on-visual-stories changing experience. Give it a read if you have any interest in the subject and I promise you won't be disappointed.
