The response to my announcement about stopping production of Basic Instructions has been just amazing. Sitting here at my computer, it’s easy to forget that there are real people out there reading these crazy things I make. I’m touched that so many of you care about the comic enough to miss it. More than one person has told me that they are adults now, and have been reading the comic since they were kids, which makes me feel great, and very, very old.
I’m looking at turning my subscriber list into an opt-out mailing list, which anyone will be able to join. I don’t know for sure what all I will do with said mailing list. I’m still bouncing around ideas. I promise it won’t be anything overtly sinister.
