Lately I have been doing a lot of situational dialogue-driven humor…just funny snippets of conversation lacking any attempt at profundity, and generally not very dark. It’s not an attempt to lighten up the strip; it’s more like a foray into a new type of writing. I haven’t decided whether or not it’s me yet. I kind of worry that if I drift too far from the roots of the strip that I will be breaking the contract with the reader that I have established. We’ll see.
