Thanks for reading.
When I was working up the Arthur, King of Time and Space concept and built a sample site for friends to comment on, one comment was the suggestion to stick to genre arcs in less confusing weekly increments (as opposed to jumping arcs daily as the sample site cartoons did). I decided that was a wise suggestion, at least initially. As time's gone on I've felt less constrained to do so, though I don't think I've run any strings of less than four or five days (with the obvious exceptions of gags that cut away to another arc for one or two panels just for the setup or punchline). I trust you guys to keep up.
I'm finding it easier to write for the contemporary arc than the others. This is unsurprising, since it draws on my own environment, but is also surprising, since the space arc is most similar to the King Arthur work I was doing on the project before this (see What's your experience? on the FAQ page) so I expected it to be my favorite.
Also I think it's time to bring in a second second-rank arc besides the western arc, so I plan to do it this month sometime - say, after I decide what genre it ought to be. There's been a vote for caveman...
It occurs to me that Lancelot claimed to
be a teetotaller in the western arc the other day, yet in his very
first appearance in that arc he was doing
a shot in a bar. That's the sort of thing that drives fanboys crazy. Oh,
