It's too bad, I was really enjoying their posts. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted. At this point it’s been almost 2 months since they posted about an actual issue.

I thought the little gray misanthrope & Sim were brilliant and was dismayed to watch the series' slow-mo metafictional crawl up its own arse in the wake of 'Reads'. Please keep going. I know it's a hell of a slog, but it's been informative as all get-out to see it from a p.o.v. other than that of the Acolyte or Jaded Fan-- I'm especially appreciative of the focus on Sim's evolution as a craftsman. That tends to get overlooked in the general rush to canonize him as king of the self-pitying pricks. He was a big influence on me when I first became interested in doing comics, and I still believe there's a great deal to be gleaned from his work... once it's divorced from the annoying bully pulpit aspect. Maybe you could alternate frustration with fun & do a parallel study of Carla Speed McNeil's FINDER to date? Fewer issues & less angst!
