A Word From One of the Creators
From the desk of Eric Ratcliffe
If you’ve been reading since the very beginning, thank you very much. You have no idea what that means to me. If you’re a newer reader, someone who got pulled in by the new art or just the most casual reader on the planet I appreciate every single one of you. I never look at our numbers so I have no idea what our audience is, but the fact that any of you read this strip is beyond awesome and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You guys all rock.
It’s weird that we’ve hit 200; feels like just yesterday I was pitching the idea out to Bill and we started developing it. Heck, when Chad first developed the original sketches it was completely different than what he was doing by the end of his run. And of course Jim developed his own crazy style that I absolutely love.
I wanted this strip to be huge, but basic at the same time. It had to feel special and it had to stand on its own and I think it accomplished all of that. I really get into my own head while writing sometimes and it was really great to see the whole team flesh this one out.
Seriously though, once again, thanks so much for reading New Comic Day as I hope to always brighten people’s days and get them to laugh one strip at a time. We’re not stopping anytime soon.
