We started Tempest in a Teardrop with subject matter firmly lodged in the Hugo Awards/Puppy controversy but intended to branch out into the culture war. This was, I believe, our first strip to venture there. It also led into the concept of “extra explanatory posts” which relate to the strip.
The follow-up post featured Terri raising awareness on the plight of sporks, Making Words. Q’s writing skills have improved since then.
Tempest in a Teardrop is currently on hiatus and will resume our normal M-W-F publishing schedule starting April 11!
