I honestly don’t know what the majority of the readers think when I run a classic Dueling Analogs. Yeah, I get to hear from the regulars or those of you more comfortable about vocalizing your opinions when I ask. But when you think that Dueling Analogs averages tens of thousands of individual readers a day and there is usually only somewhere between 20-50 comments per comic, you quickly realize that the true voice of the majority isn’t being represented.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love reading and talking to those you who do respond and I’m not complaining that not enough people are responding, either. In fact, I can actually manage to read and keep up with all of your guys’ comments so this definitely falls into a manageable area. I’m just saying I don’t know what the majority of you think of them.
Personally, I would like this think that they are helpful. Why? Well, most people don’t read the archives. You start reading Dueling Analogs, or any webcomic honestly, at the point where you started and continue from there. How do I know? I’ve got Google Analytics and I actually know how to use it. So when I run a comic, like today’s, that originally ran almost four and a half years ago I’d like to think that the majority of you who have never seen it for the first time would enjoy it being brought to your attention. And for those of you who had already seen it that it brings back fond memories.
Now from a personally point of view, I do not like running classic comics. Makes me feel bad. Even if my reasons are completely justified, like now as I have been nasty sick all weekend, I just feel like I’m not pulling my weight as a comic creator. Regardless of whether or not you paid for this content, when you visit Dueling Analogs I want you to get your money’s worth (see what I did there?).
So that’s my ranting. If you want to read more about this comic, make sure to check out it’s original posting. And just to let you know, you don’t even have to click that link you can just type in the Konami code on your keyboard and you will automatically be whisked away to that comic. I kid you not.
Oh, in case you are one of the many people who email me asking when the post version of this will finally be finished… it is in the works.
