One of the snags of posting comics whenever we have free them is writing comics that reference previous comics. It’s something we like doing so much that I’d guess there are actually very few comics that aren’t connected to other strips. And why not, it’s a great way to build your audience. Be self-referential, write inside jokes, we know in 2016 audiences have long attention spans for payoffs that are slow and require a lot of reading.
Anyway, we recommend going back and reading the previous comic to fully appreciate our well crafted and totally accessible new strip.
