Holy crap, I've hit strip #100! Hooray! I thought for number one hundred I'd do something a little longer than my usual strip. Also I figure after 100 strips it is okay to show a little skin. This should answer all the emails I get asking whether Faye wears a bra or not. ;)
There was some sneaky subtext in Monday's comic- did you catch it? If not, people are discussing it in the forums. There are a couple interpretations, either one of which could be correct. I ain't tellin'.
Do you know who else turns 100 this week? < a href="http://www.homestarrunner.com">Homestar Runner, that's who! Congratulations to the HSR fellows!
This really is something of a milestone for me, for a couple of reasons. First of all, look how far I've come artistically from first strip
. Damn, it's like a completely different comic! It is my sincerest hope that my drawing skills continue to improve at the rate they've been going for these first hundred strips.
Secondly, and more importantly, the success of QC in its first 100 strips has been completely astounding. Several thousand people visit this siite every single day. I not only break even on t-shirt sales but manage to turn a small profit on them. My forums are active, entertaining, and full of intelligent human beings. I get all sorts of wonderful fan mail and fan art and friendly IMs. This comic has become What I Do. It represents a huge chunk of my life, my creative abilities, and my effort to do something worthwhile with myself. I operate in a state of shock most of the time now, amazed at the notion that ANY group of people, let alone thousands of them all over the world, enjoys what I do.
So thank you. Thank you so much, guys and gals, for enjoying Questionable Content for these first 100 strips. I promise that I will continue to do my absolute best to tell this story the way it was meant to be told and to make you laugh along the way.While it's true that I would probably still be doing this even if you weren't around to read it, your presence here makes it the most fulfilling thing I have ever done in my life. I don't plan on stopping any time in the forseeable future, and I hope you'll stick around to see where this goes.
Onward and upward!
