Opinions please…

I have a new found energy for working on the comic, with big (good) changes coming to the storyline. Unfortunately, I’m down to basically one day a week that I have to work on the comic. I tend to work until 7pm most nights and after an hour’s drive home, all I want to do is sleep. Out of my two days off a week, one is spent doing errands I can’t do during the week and the other is Sunday, the only day I have to sit down and work.

So I’m putting it to you guys. Would you rather I stayed on hiatus, worked up a backlog of comics, then went to a once a week release schedule, or do you want me to go ahead and release what I have once a week, till I’m out of pages, then switch to a “whenever I finish a page” posting schedule?

Both have their merits. Staying on hiatus means I build up that backlog and you guys have a consistent release schedule to follow. It would mean staying on hiatus until I had at least two months backlogged. Releasing content now means I come back from hiatus sooner, but it means there’s a possibility that releases can become infrequent on weeks where I’m too busy to work.

Please let me know what you think. Your opinions are very important to me.

    Personally, I would you rather you stayed on hiatus, worked up a backlog of comics, then went to a once a week release schedule. Though we have to live with a delay now, in the long run you’ll be able to provide a consistent stream of pages even on weeks where you’re too busy to so much as think about making comics.

    Having a set goal is always good too, it’s easy to slip when you have no promise of effort. Having the one-a-week goal acts as a more concrete incentive to create pages.

    That being said, if you are making pages at a rate greater than one a week and the backlog grows absurdly large, I can’t imagine anyone complaining about a bonus page here and there. If you make enough pages you can always throw in an extra every month or so, but only if you have beyond what would be considered a reasonable buffer. There would be no commitment for you to do this and no grounds for fans to get upset if you don’t.

    In the long run I feel the once a week posting schedule provides better consistency and order while helping to guarantee that we at least get some content on a regular basis.

    Thank you for your time.

    As much as I want it to continue now, I think it would be better for us all if you build up a good reserve.

    Also changed to the storyline? Should I be worried? Will I like it? Or hate it? Only time will tell. Me so worry XD.

    Good look

      Took a look at my comment and just saw I wrote “good look” instead of good luck xD
