I've never felt the need to have a comment policy, or dictate what can and can't be said on my sites. You readers have been, for the past 10 years, an incredibly polite, sympathetic, generous, and understanding group. Sometimes I disagree with certain comments, but usually that's in regards to character motivations (which just makes me re-analyze my writing, which is a good thing).
And when I do get some snide comment about my art style or my [in]ability to make comics, I tend to take it in stride. I am, after all, pumping out pages between 9pm and midnight after a full day of work without any specific training as to "how to make real comicz." I honestly don't care about that sort of thing. My response, is, "meh. It's free, why you complainin' bro?"
But I do feel the need to clarify one important point: this story will continue to be as inclusive as I can make it with race, religion, and culture. And if you don't like that kind of story, you should probably stop reading. It's not going to change. It's a post-apocalyptic, fictional story. Now, it's likely that I'll get somethings wrong. Or not include enough lines for certain individuals. Or too many lines for other individuals. Or kill off a character I regret killing off. Or come off as being an idiot when I don't mean to be. But hey, I'm trying, because I find that sort of thing important. I don't care if you don't feel it's important; I DO care if you consider that kind of thing "wrong."
This is my comic, I'm going to do what I want, and if you don't like it, go read someone's comic. No need to try and convince me that I'm the ignorant one in the conversation. I may be a damn idjit half the time (as evidenced by backing up into my trashcans this morning), but I assure you, if there's one thing I am, it's well-studied.
That said, as-salaam alaykum, and may you all have a lovely day, inshallah.
I think I might die.
But they tasted so good going down.
