Thus the War and Peace of Dave the Direman storylines comes to an end. After the reams of rising tension, and apparently killing off our leading man, I had to resort to a sort of reverse "deus ex machina" cheat for an instant consequence-free resolution.
Some of the comic strips along the way still tickle my fancy, but I'm not sure I entirely enjoyed doing a long storyline. Normally, I conjure up a punch line that amuses me and write a way to it, but for the story arc, I was forced to lay down a plot and jam whatever punchline I could into it, whether or not I felt it was funny enough. The last thing I want is to crank out saccharine Garfield-esque comic strips.
Anyhow, what I'd appreciate is some feedback. In the future, would you, the reader, prefer we return to our snide one-shots comic strips, or engage in extended tales? Drop a note in the forums, if you'd be so kind.
