The Pathos Series
This past Friday I spontaneously introduced a sidebar panel. The idea is that I can make more comics if I just stick to a single panel and not try to make it any good. Basically, it’s mindless eye candy.
Back in the day, I used to put out a daily panel. It wasn’t easy, but I kept it pretty simple. It evolved into a multi-panel serial comic that’s rarely updated. That’s kind of like- not having any comic at all.
How often is “Pathos in the Plumbing” expected to be updated? I’m not sure yet, but I’m aiming for quantity over quality, and while it isn’t meant to replace the serial, it will most likely conflict with the serial and even retard its production.
This doesn’t mean I’m abandoning the main serial. On the contrary. I’m using the Pathos series as practice. That’s why it’s OK if the panels suck or completely lack any sort of reason or sense. I need the exercise, and it would be kind of a waste to bury these synaptic excretions.
Again, I just want to mention: It’s not supposed to be anything particularly well written or produced… It’s some of the pathos leaking out of my mind. Try not to take it seriously.
