Don’t worry, I’m not obsessing. This question comes from a conversation in the Collective of Heroes private forum. We were just looking for a base line, I guess, for various reasons. I rarely check my own numbers, and I don’t even have analytics on my own site, just Comic Rank, which is quite limited.
As for my panels enticing readers, maybe you’re right. The last three updates use that old Terry Moore trick of half picture/half prose to get a lot of exposition out of the way fast. Maybe that’s not what you are talking about, I don’t know. Maybe it’s my art–I’ve recently had to come to the conclusion that I’m not as good as I thought I was, and that was a bit heartbreaking. Maybe I’ve lost the storytelling knack, because a while back you said that my episodes did encourage readers to keep reading. Sadly, those old episodes where by a different writer (me), and the new ones are by another writer. I’ve done what I can with them. If I had my way, I would’ve ended the comic at the end of the last story arc. Frankly, my current situation with it, and my inability to inject any of my ideas into it, has been a real low point for me.
Considering the response, if you can erase this thread, feel free. I think the idea that made me post the question in the first place is ill-advised.Scott StoryMember
Yes, I guess I can. The longform comics I was referring to was the non-gag strip, ongoing story type. There are many variations to this, obviously, and some gag strips veer into the territory of long story arcs, so it’s not cut & dried. I guess I would characterize longform comics by the many comics in the Collective of Heroes group (collectiveofheroes.net), or Girl Genius, or many like that.
