This week's comic was a lot of fun for me -- it was one of the first times I acknowledged that more people read the comic online than in print. My entire career, I've been parodying print illustration, comics and ads. But in this comic, I directly parodied an online phenomenon by mimicking its look.
This caused some confusion, and my favorite example of it was this email sent to me today at 6:37pm...
...followed quickly by another email from the same correspondent, at 6:41pm.
This valued reader and INNER HIVE member generously gave me permission to republish his two emails, but I redacted his name, to spare him/her any embarrassment for hyperbolically calling the comic "Genius."
