Thanks for reading.
There's a new guy taking the webcomics culture by storm, at Websnark.com. A coupla weeks ago this Eric Burns (I keep thinking I know, or know of, someone else named Eric Burns - but then I'm past that age when all names start to sound familiar) started a blog about webcomics. Snarky as he may be, he writes well and he has many true things to say. I've been checking him out daily for at least a week now and I'm not the only one.
The idea for which I particularly am indebted to him is one of those Why didn't I see it myself? things. One of those concepts that are so mind-blowingly obvious that people overlook them. It is, simply:
I don't have to read all my daily webcomics in one session during the day.
This revelation (combined with a restructuring of the logistics for maintaining my reading list, with which I shall not bore you) has made me less reluctant than I'd been lately to add new titles to my daily or weekly reading list, and I've gone back to collect some that I encountered during my spell of reluctance which I nevertheless kept returning to.
I've also added Websnark itself to my links list. I was avoiding it till now, because I know he googles to see who's linking to him. Either I'm afraid linking to him will seem (or be) an immodest attempt to get him reading Arthur, King of Time and Space and recommending it, or I'm afraid he'll read it and recommend against it. But one can't live in fear. Besides, neglecting to list him where I otherwise list things I read daily is misrepresentative.
Look, Eric! A cast page!
