Man, anybody just now wandering in without reading any of the previous pages is going to be SO confused by all this gibberish.

So, I started to sketch out the boys' pile of luggage and it occurred to me that it reminded me of that room full of crates in Citizen Kane... and the next thing I knew I wasn't bothering to finish sketching out that background. All the more time to blindly fumble through old pages to find a clear picture of that one spacesuit Ichabod wore the LAST time Avatar was sulking outside the ship.

Anyway, thanks for bearing with me on this Saturday update, gang. Next week should be back on the normal schedule, give or take the occasional late night/early morning. And look! A fresh Voting Incentive made it up to Top WebComics while it was still Friday! Good for me!

Concerning incentive...
Is that due to the comparison made in the comments a couple pages ago? Or had you already planned this?

HAHAHAHAHAHA It's so sweet when people suggest that I actually have a plan :D

@ Incentive: You monster! You actually made it into a Giant Lollipop!

@ Blitz on Plans: I feel like you have a broad strokes plan, but for things like this you'll read comments like mine and go "Oh, that's a good idea. I'll use that". Then again, I do also read a comic that has had the latest arc continue for 2 years simply because the author didn't plan it out and kept thinking up things to continue it with. So I could very easily be wrong.

For the main comic, yes, I do try to keep things at "broad strokes" level of planning. Making a page up from scratch the night before is too exhausting, and I'm too worn out from getting the basic essentials written to add in the little off the cuff details that inevitably wind up being the best part. However, if I plan things out TOO much, and every page is just copying the exact details I already wrote down once before, that gets really tedious and unsatisfying. So I try to have the basic framework of the plot arc worked out in advance, but with enough wiggle room to throw new stuff in whenever I feel like ot.

With this latest Voting Incentive series, on the other hand, the "plan" is just to draw whatever feels coolest to draw at the moment.
