Nostalgia and internet censorship. January 17, 2012 Posted by Mookie
Much like Stunt's daydream yesterday, we've seen this exchange between a young Jayden and Luna before, albeit briefly during The Storm of Souls while Dominic was having visions of the past on his way to the Planar Pathway. I wouldn't expect anyone to remember that one passing panel from seven years ago, nor is it necessary to remember it for this story, but I like providing these links to comics past. Like the dreams for Jayden and Stunt, they're a bit of nostalgia for me.

The SOPA/PIPA Strike is tomorrow, with Wikipedia joining the protest in a 24-hour blackout.

That being said, tomorrow's update will be "censored" to show solidarity with the SOPA/PIPA Strike. I guess you could call it a "soft blackout," since the archive will still be accessible and only the newest comic will be affected. This is not the same as a "crummy filler day" or me just taking a day off. The comic will update, only in a censored manner, and once the protest is over you'll be able to see Wednesday's comic normally.

While I know quite well that "webcomicker delays update" is not even remotely new or surprising, I've been pretty vocal about this issue and I feel I should participate.

That's all from me for now.
Rock on.
