I had a lot of people really mad at me this weekend. Lots of forum posts and e-mails about how upset y'all were about Siegfried's death. There was even some name-calling in a few instances. I kinda felt like there was a big middle-finger hovering over me wherever I went this weekend, like one of those little black rainclouds... only in the shape of a middle finger. Hell, even my mother was mad at me this weekend (although for completely unrelated reasons).
But Siggy's demise seemed to open up a floodgate of feedback about how unhappy many of you are with this storyarc and the comic in general. Many of you said that the comic has "gone astray" or "descended into melodrama" or "there's too much angst." For those of you who would like things to lighten up, I ask you to bear with me for just a little while longer while things wrap up with The War In Hell. Afterwards, things won't be so "epic" around here.
Oh, and there won't be so much crying in the rain.
And finally, July's Donation Wallpapers are finally up, albeit weeks late. My apologies.
