First up: the Top Webcomic rankings have reset for December. Last month Clockworks hit about 80th after the first week, then dropped a bit every weekend. Stupid MWF comics! Anyway, we ended the month at the 123rd most popular comic on the site. Not too shabby. My only goal for this month is to end December somewhere higher than that.
So please, go vote! You can vote every day, and the site really did bring a number of new readers to this comic. So this isn’t just about climbing the charts and stroking my ego, it’s about bringing more fans to the comic you guys already enjoy.
In order to accommodate today’s Wall of Text, I shrunk the font one size, from 12 pt to 11. Let me know if this made the comic harder to read. If it does, I’ll go back to normal on Thursday’s comic. If it does not, I think I’ll switch to the slightly smaller font permanently, to clear up a bit of room for more words and to see the art better.
Astute readers will notice that Eva, Thorton, and the giant fish tank should be in the background of panel 5, based on the perspective the “camera” is at. I decided they’d just clutter things up, and left them out. We can assume the two of them are walking around, maybe getting more tea. And, um, they took the aquarium with them…
Today is International Hug a Redhead Day. Please partake, especially if you’re in Austin and can give a hug to everyone’s favorite Clockworks reading, livestream chatting redhead.
That’s about it for today, see you all on Thursday, where something happens!
