Starting in the New Year, Sidwood will be undergoing a lot of subtle changes. First of all, the setting and focus of the strip will change from its current "slice-of-life" style to a more political format. As such, the characters will be transplanted from their current setting (Indianapolis, IN) to Washington, DC.
The characters will stay the same, but they will be given jobs. Mike is to become a reporter for a political rag newspaper, Ted is to become the janitor at the Capitol, and Jen will become a waitress at a deli. Rash will remain unemployed. I may also bring back Adlai Hempfeild as a lobbyist.
In addition to these format changes, the site will also be undergoing a total redesign. The new look will (hopefully) look a lot better, and be optimized for a wider range of screen resolutions.
