First off, credit for the joke in this comic goes to Dylan who emailed it to me a couple days ago. Thanks, man.
I wasn’t originally planning on doing this comic today. In fact, today’s comic wasn’t even going to be a comic but an animation. I’d been working on it over the weekend and it was turning out quite well… at least that’s what I originally thought. After reexamining it I decided that I could do a much better and much more polished version of the animation if I just gave it a little more time. So that’s what I’m doing. With my mind already focused on the animation, Dylan’s joke gave me a perfect backup plan without any additional thinking on my part.
About the comic: One thing I had to decide about the comic was whether to go for the traditional psychiatrist’s office or the iconic Peanuts‘ “office.” You can obviously tell that I chose the latter option. I was a little hesitant about choosing it as I saw people comparing it to this VG Cats comic. But compared or not, I still felt it was the better option. And it’s not as if I hadn’t already used the Peanuts‘ “office” before and I’m definitely not the first person to parody it in another comic… Clearly evidenced by the Scott’s comic.
