Set your duck on fire...
entry, June 26th, 2005

I'm pleased, very pleased, that Wednesday's burning duck was so enjoyable for so many of you. Even some French people took the time to email me and say "hurray" or "vive la revolucion" or some such.

Since then I've written two weeks of Schlock Mercenary, and the work of growing the buffer properly proceeds apace. There are other things afoot, but my readers come first.

And now, other things... as you may have noticed from the banner at the top of the site, Schlock Mercenary is now accepting select outside advertising. Click here to learn more.

While we're on the subject of burning ducks, the recent week of "events surrounding an antimatter explosion" here at Schlock Mercenary was reviewed, dissected, and hyperanalyzed by Occultatio over at The Living Comic in his article entitled (overanalyzing) The Living (hell out of a) Comic. As I read it, I realized that it embarrassed me. It was apparent that I thought less about the writing that went into that week of strips than Occultatio spent writing about said writing. I'm embarrassed, I'm flattered, and I'm just a little bit creeped out.

Anyway, go read it. Serious criticism like this deserves attention. (I just hope he doesn't post some equally erudite NEGATIVE analysis of my work... I'd hate to eat that last sentence.)
