Aric, I appreciate the fact that you're trying to give the comic a new feel by using a three-panel format and an actual storyline, but I think there's an essential point you're missing. A lot of comic authors who have an actual storyline to their comics have the storyline written out well in advance, they don't fly by the seat of their pants, as it were. I mean, to put it bluntly, there are only so many times I can come to the site and see that Ashfield is STILL falling through hell until I just stop giving a damn.

No offense, but ? was MUCH funnier than this is now. It started out funny, but... not anymore.

It's too bad you didn't take this attitude before you ended "I am in pain." (was that it's actual name?)

It was looking pretty good.

That's the thing about time. It only makes you more bitter.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go fly by the seat of my pants.

That sounds way painful. Though will probably soon have a sport based around it...

Ohh, also on Aric's behalf, I'd just like to say that, first of all, I think the art in this comic has seriously improved since he started drawing out the storyline, instead of just pasting the same Ashfield sprite over and over again, and drawing variations around it. Nobody's really said anything about it, but bravo, I like the changes.

To address your point, however, Mr. Mooo~oogly, you're tired of seeing Ashfield falling into hell? At least you get to read something new and funny about it, instead of a lot of these other comics that don't update AT ALL. So you get to look at the SAME COMIC, instead of a new joke 5 days a week. And so maybe Aric recycles some of the same characters, and slows down the plot to get as many jokes as he can out of it (you don't get the opportunity to do "oh crap, I'm a sperm" jokes very often), he's giving you quality entertainment FOR FREE, (Actually, I'm not sure if KeenSpot has bothered paying their artists again yet, but if they are, I'm sure they're not making NEAR enough to live off of it), and all some people can do is complain. Do us all a favor and either be constructive or shut up.

Aric, Ashfield Online is still great, I have every confidence that you know what you're doing with it. Keep up the good work, and thank you.

Aric can continue to do his thang with Ashfield and he has my unimportant blessings. I'm still intrigued by what Tiny Fool is gonna do when he gets to the store and finds out he's left the letter at home though.

As for the new Bitterman, who was the old? Surely you don't refer to my monster? :-?
