Ok, I'm a bit curious or something.<P>Both of you seem to be acting like you just came back from a Hari Krisha Amway Weekend. What Gives?<P>Boxjam got spotted. Coolies and good for him. The fact is, though that a quick look at the list of other spotted comics pretty much determines that those that are chosen have precious little to do with quality or readership (and absolutely nothing to do with regular updates). My guess is that it's basically a purely personal decision by Chris Cosby and Darren Bleuel (neither of whom I read, by the way). <P>I'd also note that the more successful web comics out there aren't even on Keenspace, and here I'm thinking Sluggy Freelance, PvP and Kevin and Kell. <P>Are you good? Yes, I'd say you were. Granted, that opinion is coming from on 37 year old married computer nerd who writes a goofy web-serial, but both your writing and art are significantly different and better than most of the crap I've seen. <P>If you two want to make a living from ManMan, get the hell out there and pimp like there's no tomorrow. Go to comics conventions and talk to folks, advertise your strip, treat it like the business that you need it to be. Find <a href="http://okk.keenspace.com/losers.html">any available avenue</a> and get your comic on it. <P>If you're doing this for fun and personal ego gratification, that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish. In that case presume that you have legions of rabid, albeit silent fans. Whole vast armies of mute worshippers that, although as active as the Terra Cotta Warriors, are faithful to the end. <P>That's the pleasant dillusion I give myself, and it works rather nicely.<P>
Well, provided the beer holds out.<P>
And the prozac.<P>
Mmm.. Prozac and beer. <P><P>------------------
