Of Course I Lied!

Last weekend, I talk about how I might not be showing up much. but then I have something to come back and announce.

Faithful readers, yesterday D.A.M. Good Comics, which is what Daniel Whatley and I call ourselves, released its second ever comic.

This one's a whole lot different than the previous one, but also a bit of the same. It's still about just one guy doing just one thing and still features just his thought captions, but I think this one might be better. I like the end more possibly, though Space still has one of my favorite lines I've ever written.

Anyway, go check it out. Please. I promise you we put a lot of our souls into it. I promise you it isn't perfect, but I promise you we're getting better.

And that's what I want to talk about today. How we're at this place where we know we're not perfect, but we're throwing what we have to the wolves anyway. We're giving you all the opportunity to like it, to hate it, or to ignore it entirely. Only one of those options is any good, but I guess statistically, we have a better chance of the other two.

We're doing it anyway, because that's what we have to do. I know it's easy to read that as "what we want to do," but trust me that that's not what I mean. No one wants to give someone else the opportunity to tear them to shreds.

No, we have to do it. It's in us. It is a part of us, this creation. Our grandfathers built buildings, and we build what we can. There's a lot of heart in all of it, building anything and giving it to other people.

Maybe "we're doing the best we know how" isn't enough, but it is what we have right now and we're going to do it anyway, because as much as we want you to like it, as much as our guts chew at us if you don't download or maybe you think something bad, it's better to get hurt on the field than to atrophy on the sideline.

Because, well...
