Yeah, the flaming is definitely going to happen. :rant:

Seriously? You're serious. I can't bloody stand it when people launch these kinds of complaints against the lamentably few webcomic artists who emphasize quality of art and storytelling over achieving online popularity (which, much like online college and online sex, is essentially meaningless, IMO). And I can promise you not a single one of these webcomic "fans" has ever made an attempt to publish one. Oh I get it, "well I can't draw". Which means you have no have absolutely no concept of what goes into it.

Try it. Try holding a full time job and then using nearly every moment of your spare time to write and draw a full-color, almost cinematically executed online graphic novel for FREE to a mostly ungrateful yet startlingly impatient audience, and see how often you can bring yourself to update each month.

You want see Undertow become a roughly sketched three-panel daily gag comic just so its update frequency vs. popularity algorithm can rise on those webcomic tracking fan sites? I sure as hell don't. More than once I've stated to Britt my opinion that she should can the free site to finish the story on her terms and seek a printed publishing deal, but for the most part her fans are very supportive and give real time feedback, which is one of the perks of the internet, I suppose.

And also, as a disgruntled former webcomic artist who became disenchanted with the medium thanks to a fan culture full of whiny jerks with entitlement complexes, I don't expect she takes my opinion on the subject very seriously.

But still, I find the commitment to her quality standards and determination to tell the story as she wants it told admirable, and if you can't respect that, then she's not doing this for you.

Also if you think Wowio is going to pay her rent, thus freeing up time to draw, you live in a magical fantasy land.

Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a night. Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

I know "Inverloch" and "Earthsong" got published through Seven Seas.

If you want an example of extremely slow updates - "Gone With the Blastwave" has about 40 comics and it started in ... 2005? So about 4 years ago.
