I was guessing you would end or tie up the story threads and make each chapter self contained, but then again I don't suppose the spam is always that obliging. I imagine that continuing like this will be more difficult for you, but will be more intricate and enjoyable for us to play with. I have a question , a comment and a quandary.
When you're making your comic, do you have the characters and their back stories already in mind, or do you rethink them as the spam snakes the story around? Or possibly, do you just fake it and let us figure out if it makes sense.
Did you know before the church scene?
Do you not know now and will not know until the Spam tells you of their future? I don't really want to know about them right here, I was just curious on your method.
I have been thinking on your "true Apophenia experience" of writing the dialogue as each page comes out. I'm afraid that it wouldn't work well for me. My story line would be full of "Ha, I was just kidding" and "Oops I thought you were someone else" sorts of gaffes.
Heck, I've already written myself into a hole by identifying the blue woman as the Rouge's dream lover, when she now seems to be his mom.
I've already figured a way to plot around that. (The message the Rouge reads is that they have finally found his dream girl who he met only once for a night of dull vanilla sex, and it turns out that she recently died leaving behind their bastard child, Rouge Junior. The funeral was attended by her three other sons, half brother bastards of three other main characters. The girl was dull, but quite a slut. It fits, right?)
That's certainly another way to go with it.But I worry that no one will want to read more odd religious ranting and drama for the sake of drama. Drama for the sake of drama may be fun, but it's futility becomes obvious after a while. We'll see.

The new chapter has more static poses or ones where the dialogue could be just about anything. The action doesn't telegraph any particular plot. That's going to make it a lot harder to write dialogue (I thought of a lot of mine as "cheating" because I wrote what I thought was the obvious storyline for the most part).
Ghastly: might it be easier if you think of yourself as being on the receiving end of a storytellers' round-robin? One even more insane than usual, but six or eight different authors would explain the sudden 180 degree turns of the plot...

According to Google that is indeed the correct spelling. Of course the lyrics for that song have long since been changed.

In other news we will likely be having our CD release party on March 31st.
