Wait wait, I wasn't claiming anything of the sort! I just liked that turn of phrase, is all. That post is over a year old! You certainly were not plagiarizing. Apologies for the misunderstanding. Your post was a good post!

Yeah, I'm another who's been reading Sluggy since nearly the beginning and at this point I'm in 'til the end, if nothing else just to see if he pulls it off. Yes it's far too overstuffed for its own good by now, but the guy puts in an admirable level of effort attempting to keep all the balls in the air.

He's actually said that the *daily* strip should be ending within a year, but he has vague plans to keep doing Sluggy things in some format afterwords. I suspect this means he's going to do his damnedest to wrap up all the intertwined dramatic plots in a big finale, and will then be free to go back to using the characters for random sitcom shenanigans and parodies, albeit on an irregular schedule.

I had to go back through the Octopus Pie archives to remember who the guy in the most recent comic is (it's Puget Sean), and I ended up reading the whole thing. God, Octopus Pie is amazing.

I'd thought the plot of Girl Genius was dragging just a year ago, but the recent pages have been pretty damn exciting
