Okay, if you’ve been on the site since Friday or so you’ve probably noticed that it works a lot better now. After 5 years or so someone finally appeared who was capable of repairing the various damage done to the site, without throwing it all in the trash & starting over. Omake Theater is their website if you want to give them a look & a thanks for the assist. Many people have offered to help, but they always wanted to demolish the old site & start from scratch. If you’ve only ever had limited interaction with your audience, ignored your blog, or maybe even turned off comments altogether, I can understand how you might not get why those things are important to me. It is the history of the comic & also my life. When I go back into the archives & read comments I remember usernames & wonder what happened to those people. Did they die? Did they just get sick of the comic? Did life just get in the way? Sometimes old names come back after years being away & I get told how my work helped them look at life differently. If you’ve never created anything I can’t describe exactly what that feeling is like. It certainly help fight the feeling that what you’ve spent your life doing wasn’t a complete waste of time.
