This is one of those moments where Will and I were just on the exact same page, even though we contributed different things to it. We came up with Tzetzem’Tze’Tzemoze a LONG time ago and we’ve been dying to get him on the page. Well, the broad strokes we came up with a while ago. The details are still pretty fresh and new. Yet another one of the Thirteen revealed. (Only eight to go!)
I know I said I was done with the “Click Here” blog names, but how can I ignore page 500? We’re actually within two weeks of our 4 year anniversary of doing this comic…but this has to be hands down the biggest milestone of the book so far. We’re halfway to a THOUSAND pages. We’re close to wrapping up Act Two (so to speak) of Volume Two. 83,000 people have been to the site since we launched (although the vast majority have never been back >SOB!<). We have over 400,000 hits and over 3 MILLION page views…and none of that counts Tapastic. (Of course, we’ve only been there two months, but we have almost 100 subscribers and 10,000 page views, so that’s ain’t nothing!)
By far we’ve gotten the largest number of readers from an ad we placed on Girl Genius back in the day, and that ad keeps paying dividends, because people still keep coming to us from there. (Maybe the Foglios have a link to us somewhere?) An ad on Dominic Deegan (another webcomic) has also produced a bunch of readers, as has Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether and the review that we got from io9.
To those of you who have stuck things out with us, thank you. I hope we continue to earn your time and attention. Here’s to 4 more years, 500 more pages, and to the next 83,000 readers sticking around!
