And it turns out unwinder has like the Exact Same Handwriting as me. It's creepy. I am always double checking to make sure I didn't come up with these ideas and Eli didn't jsut sneak into my house and take all my ideas.

Ha ha ha, I actually disguised my handwriting very slightly.

Usually I write all-uppercase, but I established in the very first strip that Unwinder doesn't write that way.

I slipped up on a few trailing Ns and one E.

I do a lot of handwritings though so I guess it's not that surprising that some of yours would be super similar to some of mine.

Well then, there's your proof that it wasn't you!

So I guess, what I am thinking for 2012 is that I'm going to work on using the cast more as an ensemble, and less as a variety of foils for Unwinder. Let's call this my new year's resolution.

I like it!

I thought the notes you wrote at the end was great too!

I am really looking forward to seeing this new ensemble.

I actually found the Master Card parody to be pretty funny.

I was mulling over your comments about tall comics appealing only to a niche market, due to elements such as its multitude of obscure references buried inside obscure references. If that's true, then the question arises: why bother creating something in such a way that it appeals to fewer people?

I think it is easy to make numbers the measure of success when we think in terms of markets. Even if we are thinking of a niche market, we will do what we can to alter the comic so that it has wider appeal. For example, niche cable channels such as Sci Fi, or TLC, History, or VH1 have tended to grow more and more bland over time, abandoning their original focus in favor of more widely popular fare, such as reality shows.

I say forget marketability and keep doing what satisfies you. I recently read elsewhere, that, if you're okay with having smaller readerships, and you focus on your own peculiar goals, you are much more likely to create something that is actually good. The hope, in that case, would be that readership would grow by conversion. I think that's the way you write, and I hope you'll continue to do so.

So, if your readership is small (I have no idea of its actual size), and remains small, what inspires you to keep writing?

Oh, I am definitely OK with not having a huge audience.

I estimate the readership at around 300 people, based on Facebook/analtyics. Which is not too shabby. And I make enough money from PW and donations to pay for the hosting, which is a lot further than most webcomics ever get.

I make comics because I am compelled to do so, and I think I'm good at it.

But mostly for my own amusement, and for the amusement of my own friends.

Those are all good reasons, I think.

I didn't mean to offer unsolicited advice so much as I meant to say that I like your comic a lot. Sometimes I feel I will be personally responsible for things I like not succeeding as they deserve.

I want your comic to get more popular so people will recognize my Howard shirt when I'm out and about on the mean urban streets. :howard:

The family is good. Sveta has learned how to giggle, which is the best thing ever. She also has started, like, yelling and then blowing a raspberry, which is pretty amusing.

Hmm, this spambot is too charming to just delete outright.

Yeah, I felt like doing some different expressions, and bringing teeth into the equation was a good way to do that.
