    I really tried to do a faithful job in adapting the story. The biggest challenge, because the story was sort of this one continuous experience, was to find places where the story can break and leave each page with a little mini-cliffhanger...not terribly difficult because i think, in good stories from solid writers, those sort of hooks are peppered all the way through. I've always thought the number one job of a story is to simply make you want to keep reading by making you want to know WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. But to find it in 24 evenly spaced parts...lol...THAT was a challenge.

    stephen king talks about the importance of "narrative propulsion": I guess narrative brake-pads are important too sometimes!

    (and don't forget to check those treads and watch for under-inflation...!)

    I'm so glad people are enjoying it. It's always surprising to me but it really shouldn't, that people unfamiliar with comics would have trouble reading them at first. But of course it makes total sense.

    Please let me know if you have any questions! Only 6 more weeks to go, I'll try to keep it interesting!
    ...I hope that somewhere along the line Dennis, it gets released to comic's distributors....

    I am absolutely reading this. We're building the story and it's keeping coming back. I want to know where this is going. And comic book artists are so amazing. How they do what they do. Oh how I wish I could draw! Such a talent to have.

    It's an option as a print edition but for now, it will be an on-line exclusive.

    Having never read the short story, this was my first exposure to TLGGA. That said, I found it kind of lacking. I thought it was drawn well, but the story was kind of boring. Am I alone in thinking this?

    Read the story if you can. I personally feel Dennis Calero did an excellent job with it.
