And here we are at Book 4 already.
Thank you all for some great suggestions on what to add into the first published book. (Especially Thracecius, Brett and Sterling) I agree, I don't want to over extend myself when it comes to stretch goals so I'll be focusing on new added features for the book over the next half a year or more. Most of you have said back story features would be most welcomed, so I got one more question for you. If I were to do a ten page spotlight on one of the character's past, who would you most want to see? (excluding Emrys whose past was pretty well covered fairly recently.)I'll also be working on the extended version of 'McKrakkins trip' and even a few never before seen 'out-take' comics that never were completely finished. I was also considering occasional commentaries at the bottom of the page talking from anything from artistic notes to hidden story elements.
As for stretch goals, yes, simple is better. I like the idea of the 3x5 character portrait cards a lot and maybe even bookmarks. Also it would be very easy to include a Drinker's Hell game for a higher level.
So I'll start working on those. Maybe preview a few of them for the Patreon viewers as they happen as well. Still a little ways off. Maybe by early next year. So feel free to throw me more suggestions between now and then.
I may not have a giant readership like some other web comics out there, but I do feel I got some of the best fans around. Thank you.

Tricky question, though – I feel we have a vibe on most of the ladies (apart from Mrs McKrakkin who I like to think of always having new stories for her past). Mateo works as being this guy who’s just always around. Jeff, maybe, or Annabel?
Comedy option: Leif, for the story of how he left the Norwegian tennis team.
Another reader suggested Jeff as well. He really is the least defined character at the moment. I’ll have to see if I can come up with something. Annabel would be good too, but she doesn’t make an appearance in the first book so I’m limiting the choices to those characters who appear in the first 168 comics.
Thanks for the great input.
Little hard to read some of the text on this one. Interesting story line though. Where’s the $3 pizza place?
You’re right. I need to be more careful where I overlay the lettering.
(Yes! We need Mark to visit that bargain basement pizza place that I once lived next to. His new place does look awfully familiar not that you mention it.)
This was amazing. Loved the internal dialogue.

Thank you. I like how that one turned out too. In fact, all the characters will be having some internal dialogue throughout this chapter.(from time to time) Should be good for better character development.
Late to the party, but I’ll just add that I really enjoyed this page, particularly since it shows Mark lifting himself out of the gutter that his emotions were trying to keep him in. It’s always good to see a rebound. 🙂
