    I dig it Andre! How did you level up on drawing? I can't draw perspective for dogs bollocks.

    The simplistic style was always an artistic choice (I find a lack of mouths to be inherently funny because... I'm utterly demented, I guess). Also I held back for schedule purposes -- I always planned on going daily, and for that I'd need a style I could pump out every day. Still it didn't really work out. Hugely stressful and time-consuming. So I went back to a three times a week schedule, and since I'm indefinitely sticking to that, why not up the art style. So I did.

    Also, thank you, agentarsenic and nemomen, for the kind comments.

    I went to take my first look at Pitch Black last week, and this ended up with me going through all your strips in a bulimic fashion. I extremely enjoyed them, and they also came at a time where I was in due need of laughter, so thank you very much for this. As one of your reader said, you have a uncanny talent for unforeseen and surprising punchlines.
    One of the reason I so enjoyed them was that it was filling my need for strips in the vein of the Perry Bible Fellowship (which I know you know as you dedicated one of your strip to Nicholas Gurewitch). I don't think I can get enough of that kind of humour, and yours is most welcome.

    As for your your new art style, I think it's gorgeous and kicking much ass. I do not think, however, that all your strips need to be done in that tone - again, I have the PBF as an example, were the style would switch to accommodate the tone of the story. In your case, for example, I do not think the Witch story especially needs to be done in the complex style, but it surely enhances strips involving the spaceship team and the Admiral of Awesome.

    Thank you for Pitch Black!

    Heheheheh. The strip appealed greatly to my inner twelve year-old. :D

    Thanks so much for taking the time to write that, Miranda. I'm smiling like an idiot here.
