Thanks for the advice, folks. The sense of the feedback I'm getting is that I should prioritize prose over comic strips, and I find that very helpful and even a little validiting.
SO I WENT AHEAD AND DREW THAT COMIC ANYWAY
(clickmic for comic.)
I must admit that this one was a lot of fun.
So I have some notes for a prose piece and sketches for a new comic sitting on my desk. Guess I'll start fiddling with them both and see which captures my interest, although I'm still feeling a bias towards writing.
