Alright. So, I just have it in my head that a lot of you are immediately going to hate this latest development. I wish I could say more about it, but since we just met these three I obviously can’t do that. I’m afraid I’ll have to pull the ‘ol “wait and see” card with this one.
It’s not random, though. When I started mapping out this storyline and figuring out what was going to happen to Ed & Bill and Alyssa & Beth once they parted ways, this was a big part of the plan. I guess all I’m saying is give it a few weeks before you start sending me angry emails telling me how stupid these kids are. =-)
I know it can be frustrating trying to take in a serialized story like this over a long period of time, but I swear this is all going to connect.
I don’t want to be too self-congratulatory here, but I suppose this is something of a milestone for us. Even looking back over the last few years worth of work, it still feels like EMW is just a baby in the webcomic community. So it’s strange to consider how many comics we know of that started after us and have already disappeared. It’s been a trip and we’ve learned so much since that awkward (and rather embarrassing) first strip we posted back in January of 2011. And we’re still learning. We’re constantly trying to figure out how to improve all of this.
So thank you to everyone that’s continued reading and continued supporting us. It’s been a lot of fun exchanging emails with some of you (even the angry ones) and watching traffic to this site steadily grow. I’m not sure getting this far was even conceivable when we first started doing this and your interest in this silly little adventure is a huge part of what’s kept us going.
Thanks again. 200 pages. Damn. I’ll only pat myself on the back one time. Then it’s back to work.
Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up. I’ve been working on a pretty substantial behind-the-scenes overhaul of the site all day and I’m still working the bugs out. At this point, there shouldn’t be any major changes to the site cosmetically. Just a few nips and tucks. This was mostly focused on the way everything is organized.
You might notice that the old archive page has been removed and in its place is a new dropdown menu that allows you to jump to individual chapters instead. It should make it a lot easier to navigate through our previous story arcs. I also think it looks a lot less intimidating to new readers.
You may have also noticed that there’s now a Store section. It’s not open yet and that’s why the link doesn’t work. We’re working on getting some merchandise together and we’ll let you know as soon as it’s available.
