We begin Chapter 8 Of Making and Unmaking with Page 1. We’re back from our vignette to the present day. Who’s that making a chalk drawing on the floor? What’s up with the drawing? Who’s that on the wall smiling? Why is his portrait on the wall after what he did? All will be explained in the coming pages.
You may have noticed our new layout. Many of our readers recommended a landing page for the comic. After giving it a lot of consideration, Diane and I decided to restore the landing page. We thought that this would give you, the readers, more options when you first come to our site. You can go to the start of the chapter, a particular page of the chapter, the Table of Contents, or the most recent page. Also, we have links to the most recent almanac entry and to our store below. I particularly like the idea of keeping that beautiful almanac image by Erin Mehlos on the front page more than just once a week. Let us know what you think.
We are also giving thought to removing the arrow key navigation from the pages. Some readers said that they use the arrow keys when writing comments below and having the arrows tied to turning pages caused problems. Let us know your thoughts on this. We may be removing the arrow navigation in the near future.
The SpiderForest comic of the week is Cooties by Nick Perkins. Cooties is an all-ages comic strip which follows a bunch of kids and their adventures dealing with school, friends, parents, the opposite sex, and the occasional paranormal/extraterrestrial catastrophe. One of the joys of webcomics is watching the quality of the art evolve over the pages. Cooties does this rapidly. It’s like watching one of those sped-up videos of a flower blooming. Check it out!
