…and with that, the 100th comic, I’m going to call it a day with regular comic updates for the 2010-2011 school year. I never liked how the strip just sort of petered out last year, so this seems like as good a place as any to call it a year. I only have 13 more teaching days ’til summer vacation (believe it or not, I can hardly believe it myself).
Given that fact, I’m going to shift focus here a bit. Updates will continue more or less regularly over the summer months, but I’m going to try to vary it up a little bit. I’ve really enjoyed some of the longer format comics I’ve done the past year (the three-strip run on merit pay and my take on the It Gets Better campaign) and I think I’m going to spend at least part of the summer trying to write a couple of longer narrative comics like that, concerning teaching.
I’ve also been mulling a brief run of true journal comics. I did personal journal comics featuring my family and friends for a few years before this enterprise and while you could argue that they were pretty lousy (fact: they were), I enjoyed creating them and it might be fun to do a couple, capturing my kids’ at this age.
…so yes, I’m not going away or anything but hooray for Comic #100!
