There is a lot more falling action at the end of “the first day” than when I originally wrote it. I expected the strip to tank pretty fast, so I wanted there to be a distinct end to the first story arc. The logic behind it being that if no one liked the comic I would at least have one finished work to go to my grave with. After that, nothing else really mattered. I could at least say that I gave it my best shot, even if it wasn’t good enough. At the end of it all I would have one less regret to follow me into the great beyond.
