six hundred stupid comics installments?!
It really is profoundly nuts that we've done six hundred installments of Stupid Comics. When we started the feature at Mister Kitty, we really didn't have a firm idea of exactly what we wanted to do or how we wanted to do it. The early installments are kind of all over the place. It took a few weeks before we figured out how much material was good for a week's update, the best way to present images and text, and most importantly, we adapted into a routine that we could continue to execute week after week, a sustainable model that might not be the flashiest or the most up to date website, but it's one we can maintain over the long haul.
it took us fifty installments before we got to the one comic that started it all for us, the one comic so weirdly goofy that we'd show it to everyone who visited us, a comic that our pal Grant pretty much shoved in my face and said "you must buy this" back in the 90s. It's the comic that made us realize the entertainment value of bad comics, above and beyond the typical "Superman is a dick" material that the web was lousy with when we first started.
Thanks to everyone who has come with us on this journey!!
