If you haven’t heard, the comic is moving to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule. No, I don’t have extra time and no, I’m not feeling generous, I simply have to get this storyline finished by Thanksgiving(in the U.S.) and there’s no way that’s happening with a twice-a-week schedule. Main reason would be that I don’t update on Thanksgiving(few people post or read comics that day), and this storyline can’t get interrupted by that. I also can’t have it drift into December. I was worried that it would have to be 5-a-week, but thankfully it played out to 11 more comics(including this one) when I scripted it out yesterday.
…which leads me to that number you see at the top of the comic. This storyline was plotted out back in April, and probably started when Kenny graduated(a start of a new storyline in anybody’s life). 10 comics remain in this storyline now. The next comic will have a 9. When the number reaches zero on November 23rd, something big will happen. In fact, a few big things will happen. Surprises will occur between now and then and characters’ lives will be changed. That is all I will say about the next 10 comics.
Oh, and remember when I posted thumbnails of the remaining 8 comics for this month and I cut off the last panel of today's comic? That huge word was the reason. Too attention-getting for the thumbnail, and at the time I really wasn't sure if it would stay like that. Now that I've loosely scripted all of November as well, I know that this is indeed what happens. Death and Kenny, go see what those characters are up to, will ya?
