What's a party without a little lawbreaking?
Note from the FUUUUTUUUREEE - I eventually updated all of my page format comics to strip format, so enjoy this irrelevant but historical aside.)
As you probably noticed, I'm switching up the format. TG has never been married to either the full page or strip form, but lately I've realized that the strips work better for what I generally need to accomplish. If I don't have enough room, I can always go for a double-decker strip, but in general I think this format will work nicely. Of course, I may throw in a full page comic from time to time if I feel like it, just because I like kicking myself in the ass when it comes time to print a book. :-)
Being that I'm about 15 comics ahead in my buffer I can report that it took a little getting used to, but I'm happy with the way it's turned out. As an artist it has forced me to use more creative angles and not use the 3/4 forward view exclusively, and I find ways of getting the important information across in a more defined space.
See you on Wednesday, and don't forget to go back a comic if you missed out on last week's Friday Extra!
