Arthur, King of Time and Space


It's nice to get back to the space arc after a month. You recall how I've said once or twice I sometimes wish I'd created Arthur, King of Time and Space differently: in the sort of suspended chronology most comics characters live in, the height of King Arthur's reign, all character relationships in a fully established equilibrium; maybe even only the baseline or only the space arc, at least initially. I'll not switch to equilibrium format now, and in any case after a few years and a few more landmark events even this biography format will arrive at the equilibrium point and maintain it almost until the end. But till then the space arc, the only one of the three major arcs with the legend's four main characters grouped in the same place, is the closest to equilibrium format there is. That makes it good to get back to.

The other side of it is, getting back to the space arc means going back to having to write a new stand-alone gag day after day. Life is a series of trade-offs.
