Continuity

Postby Derbobman on Fri Oct 05, 2001 1:37 am

In the age old question of continuity vs. funny, MM is shaping up to be one of the few online comics that doesn't have to crack a joke every few frames to still keep my interest (I have a short attention span!). Anyway, nice work!<P>------------------

Agreed. Generally, I prefer to read funny comics. All of those epic, anime-influenced fantasy comics? You know, the ones where the characters themselves don't really seem to know what's going on? I can't get into a single one of them. Storylines are fine, but I need my laughs.<P>Despite myself, I keep checking back on The Makeshift Miracle. Great art, good sense of mood...I can't read this thing fast enough! I absolutely must know what happens next! Monday-Wednesday-Friday updating is KILLING me! I need more! Faster! More, more more!<P>

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Glad I'm building the anticipation for you, even if it's only 3 days a week. Although I am quite ahead on pages, I'm going to stick with the 3 pages a week schedule for now. With my day job getting busier all the time, I know it'll be difficult keeping pace later. Having a 10-12 page buffer will ensure that it's always on schedule.<P>So, it may not be fast enough, but it is regular. Thanks for reading and enjoying <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

Haven,<P>I am so sorry... I went to post a reply to your message and instead of hitting 'reply with quote' I hit the 'edit' button and deleted your post... arrrgh... sorry about that.<P>Well, anyways, here's my reply... again, sorry... <P>
Glad you're enjoying the story, Haven! I noticed that the "gag a day" strips had larger readerships because of the ability to drop in and not worry about getting caught up, but didn't feel I'd be able to do that week in and week out. <P>The people that are sticking around to read The Makeshift Miracle (and according to the server logs, it's a pretty good amount for such a new site) seem to be appreciating the slower build. Which, of course, is just fine with me <P>As far as the Message Board goes, it's better for me to focus here on my home turf (so to speak) and make sure my audience can communicate with me when I'm able to rather than just have a message board and let it rot here.<P>Although the little news blurb I post on the main page will give people info, I'd like the regulars on the message boards to have access to more. More details, sketches or things like that. If you're a fan enough to peruse the forum, I'd like to reward you for it when I can.

I don't mind the M/W/F schedule at all. A lot of online comics update like that, and so it's accepted already.<P>And, as you pointed out, it's much nicer if a comic is updated consistently. I know some comics are supposed to update 5 times a week, but probably average out more like 3.<P>Tis the world we live in. But consistency is definitely not a bad thing.
