Hey, Strippers, Welcome to 2019!
It’s that time of the year when, traditionally, we all get a little more introspective and set goals for ourselves to mark on the blank slate of life before us. You might remember we did a similar thing in the leadup to 2018, setting out our goals for the blog and for the show — now it’s time to look back on those goals and forward again, and give you a little hint to where the Digital Strips Blog will be headed in this brand new year!
So, How About Those Goals?
At the end of 2017, we put a couple of webcomics on our list that we wanted to watch out for in the future. Sadly, two of those on the list received the famous Digital Strips Treatment…
September 7, 2018, officially marked the end of Tom Fonder’s Business Cat’s journey across the Internet and, sadly, the ever-more sporadic update schedule of Kelly Turnbull’s ‘Manly Guys Doing Manly Things’ seems to have finally ground to a halt as of June 11, 2018. Assuredly, this had absolutely nothing to do with our highlighting them as favourites. Nope, nope, nope, nope…
As for our other goals for 2018, most of them were met – the podcast passed it’s 500th episode with flair, and of the listed webcomics the blog and show wanted to check out last year, only one was missed (sorry, Carciphona! Your time will come!)
Resolutions For 2019
This year promises to be one of the most exciting yet for Digital Strips fans! There are some big plans for both the podcast and the blog, but the key resolution we’re making for you is more consistent content (especially in the Blog!). Expect a new blog post to drop Monday morning each week, giving you something to look forward to when you get to your breakfast table, office, school, or wherever you might be trying to grasp those few precious moments before the week begins. There’s a lot of webcomics out there, folks – and they’re doing some amazing things we can’t wait to talk to you about!
Next week we’ll be taking a little retrospective over some of the Webcomics that really caught our attention last year — and noting some to watch in 2019. Until then, though, you can hit us up on Twitter or here on the site with your own recommendations or questions for the DS team.
And as always, remember — Don’t eat the clickbait!
