Many readers have commented on the heated debate in St. Petersburgh over the new comics. First off, thanks for all the kind words. You’re the ones I draw the strip for.
Someone asked if the negative feedback in the St. Pete’s Times bothers me. Not really. In fact, I’m glad people are still so passionate about their comics. It’d be a sad day when a paper changes a strip and no one notices.
As far as some of the harsher comments, well, that just comes with the territory in the entertainment world. If I don’t like a particular strip or TV show or movie for that matter, I just don’t read/watch it. That simple. I recognize that it might not be for me but a lot of other people probably do enjoy it. I absolutely love “Lost” but I’ve never watched CSI (I think there’s seven right?). That doesn’t make CSI stupid. It’s just not for me. Calling it stupid would imply that those that watch it are too dumb to realize it’s stupid. Just doesn’t work logicaly.
Anyway, I hope St. Pete keeps DeD. I know they’ve received a lot of positive feedback not posted on their website. We’ll wait and see.
