My first year as a web comic author was educational. One lesson learned: links to peers are better served on a dedicated page than on individual page comments. Thanks to everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to visit this little site. Listing everyone’s gonna take some serious admin time; drop me a line on email@example.com.
