    Again, great show! Absolutely lovcd it. And I am relieved – looks I’m not the only one who writes himself constantly into corners, has the wrong character saying the wrong things at the wrong side of the panel, etc. Yer essn’t a beg fuhn of”Wanted”, Zoe?
    Btw, can’t you guys go weekly? Being back at the grinder on Monday mornings is much more bearable if there’s your podcast to listen to… 🙂

      Aw, that’s nice.

      I don’t know how possible it is to go weekly at the moment. Organising four people can be tough.

        We are organising people now? I thought we were hearding cats. 😛

        Seriously though, I’m happy to go weekly but I know not all of us can commit to that sort of schedule on a regular basis and I’d hate to leave someone out a lot of the time.

          Yeah, I feel the same. Weekly works for me, but leaving people out is mean.

          Meow! Spencey’s (?) cat makes a great co-host. Lots of action in the background. Hopefully, “no animals were harmed during the production of this podcast.”

            No cats were harmed, certainly. I tripped over a pig on the way to the microphone and kicked a horse down the stairs but we certainly didn’t harm any cats.

            Haha! Yes, I thought she made a good co-host too.

            I tried to show her how to use the computer but I couldn’t get her beyond playing with the mouse.

    Whoa, 3 month buffers — now I’m depressed.
    You mentioned postage stamp sized comics — these are close Sibermedia

    Great work. Keep it up.

      Three month buffers are something I want for both my comics. Maybe then I’ll stop panicking every Sunday. Probably not, though.

    Hi Luke

    Great podcast! Very interesting and informative. Good tips on webcomic making.

    On writing – Do you ever look back at reserve back up jokes or scenes in your note pad and struggle to find them interesting with the passing of time. Last night, I sat down to pencil a comic, looked at my reserve stuff and just couldn’t connect to them anymore.


    • Zoë Kirk-Robinson23 October 2010 at 20:08 #

      All the time. The trick is to either try to improve the joke, or go with the fact that you thought it was good when you first wrote it, so it’s likely your readers will enjoy it too.

        Every so often I clear out my Ideas Notepad, archiving the ideas I can no longer relate to. I will go back to those notepads from time to time and sometimes I can catch myself off-guard with an idea I’ve forgotten about, and use it.
