New Readers Guide

Hi, thanks for coming to my comic site! I know things are a little confusing at first, because of the way that I have the multiple-story archive set up. So let me try to walk you through how things are put together.

First of all, every single story is always accessible directly from the archive page, where you can get to the individual stories, see the overall calendar view, and read the textual recaps of the longer stories where I've made recaps available.

Secondly, you might notice that most of the stories are sub-stories of "Unity." This part is a little confusing too; basically, the original story entitled "Unity" establishes a kind of complicated setting, but the best way to get into it is to just read the stories as you like. (If you want, you can also buy print collections.)

There's a few other weird wrinkles in the archive. Journal comics were originally part of my weblog, but I eventually pulled them into this comic site as well, but some of the early ones especially are about things I was actively blogging about at the time. So, if you don't understand them, don't worry, it's not really worth trying to.

Then there's the navigation stuff. On most comics, you have four buttons: first, previous, next, and current. Well, since this comic site collects multiple stories, the "first" button refers to the first strip in the series you're looking at. There's an additional button to the left of it, which goes back to the story list.

Finally, there are a few different views that you can use to consume different amounts of comic at a time. There's the typical "daily" view, then there's also the less-common "weekly" view, then there's the even-less-common "monthly" view, and finally, there's the "comments" view (which lets you look at the transcript, if available, and any comments on the individual comics, but also treats news posts as part of that stream as well). The date-based views can all be switched to by the handy calendar that's at the top of the date-based pages, and you can always switch between specific views with the links below the navigation bar.

This is confusing and annoying but you'll get the hang of it! And of course the best way to subscribe to new comic posts is via RSS or some other syndication service (such as Comic Rocket).

The proof came back all nice and good, and so I've opened up preorders. If you want a physical copy, now's the time to get one!

2017/06/15: Bumpin' the previous newspost

I really gotta get around to redoing my website so it isn't so confusing.

Also I bet this additional entry screws up IFTTT.
