THE USUAL RUNDOWN!
We don’t usually like to directly ask a woman’s age….was Pluto still a planet when you were growing up?  (stole your joke) Brian
You open the comic with a classic SciFi trope of calling your hero in that by-gone age of pre space flight TV/Movie chatter…is it ok that I read that in my head as intended…do you think that trope is universal enough for Millenials to hear in their heads…If not…what do you think they are hearing? Brian
The comic is distibuted on Tumblr using the Simple Webcomic Theme. You are up to 80 something comics is there any re-evaluation going on in your head or does Tumblr still fit your needs? What’s the next step beyond Tumblr? Or is this just simply the best way to distribute the comic? for always! Brian
