My Sainted Mother, who of course dutifully reads this comic even though the only comic she ever liked was vintage Pogo, asked me why I kept referring to this as a “comic” when it isn’t funny.  Of course, I personally could ask the same thing of Marmaduke, but hey, tastes differ.  For instance, I myself find graphic violence hi-larious, so I have no idea what she is talking about.

Ultimately, I think the easiest answer is that “longform” is still too obscure a word.

We’ll certainly have our share of character-based humor, of course.  Gotta have those lighter moments.  They give the graphic violence more punch.  But still and all, this ain’t gonna be Walt Kelly’s comic strip.

Uh, longform.  Whatever.
