I rarely point to my Patreon links, but perhaps, in order to thrive, I must take a more active role in promoting my work, & related methods of support. Alternately Subscribestar is available if you disagree with the actions of Patreon. If you enjoy my work perhaps it is worth supporting for the minimal amount I suggest, which you can increase if you so choose. Website ads haven’t been a viable method of monetization for years, but the are good as a small supplementation, which is why I keep them. Anyway, simply a reminder for those of you who have come to have warm feelings for these stories I present thrice weekly.
For those of you who have been around long enough to remember The Teen, her birthday was recent & she is coming to visit tomorrow. She is doing well enough in these dangerous times, in spite of working in the food service industry. Dr Cornelius’s virus has not brought her down… yet.
As a historical footnote, the 3DS family of systems was officially retired today. The era of dedicated handheld gaming has, as far as I can tell, come, at last, to a close. It’s an era of gaming that defined much of my life. From the Gameboy all the way to the 3DS I have had a dedicated handheld device on my person more often than not. The comic itself even has a conversation about such devices early on. So now those pages are even more firmly rooted to a specific point in time. Something I generally avoid now. Although it’s safe to say, if my experience is anything to go by, that these now outdated devices will never fade completely from the minds of enthusiasts. Their roles will change, but they will remain to be tinkered with now that the creator has abandoned them. Still… given the potion I would certainly welcome a Switch small enough to fit into my pocket.
