I spent some time with that last panel, trying to figure out whether to convey details or emotions, and then whether I was doing it right. My lady friend is always my greatest previewer, so any successes with it definitely go to her.
I'm enjoying this buffer and trying not to waste it. It feels like things are a lot easier now :) Oh, and now that there's a proper rhythm feel free to let your friends know, web socializing, the twitfaces and all. We're moving to a standard once-a-week on Sunday at midnight for the main comic.
In June I'll also be adding off-storyline gag strips (or occasionally side-quests, 2-a-weeks, other oddities). They'll probably be on Thursday nights
