Here is this week’s comic. I know it’s a little wordy this time around, but this comic is a little cathartic for me. Before I get 50 emails from people all claiming that I’m making fun of them in the strip just know that this scenario has played itself out many times since we’ve started doing what we do.
When you send us an email asking for a review of your strip you have to be prepared to take the bad with the good. I’m sure everyone who writes reviews runs into this eventually. Considering we are talking about a whole community of sensitive artists this situation seems unavoidable. There are plenty of artists and writers out there that have really thin skin. When you publish your work to the whole world, though, you have to be prepared that not everyone is going to be into your stuff. All you can do is try to find value in the criticisms, take from it what seems worth reflecting on, and move on.
