Nicely done, Greg.

Tragedies bring out the best and worse in people.

That's one thing about the human race. As a species we've got range!

Speaking of the World Trade Center attack in Greg's comics, I notice the tone of the comments in today's "Latest Word" section sound a little defensive -- Greg, are you taking flack from anyone, directly or indirectly, for dealing with this within the comic? Or, are there threads running on boards somewhere about how comics should/shouldn't steer clear of the tragedy? (That would qualify as "indirectly taking flack," in case any of you were wondering what I meant above.)

Peace out,

Max Leibman

I've had only positive feedback thus far. The tone may have come across as defensive partially because it's wearying to find the words to discuss the topic but probably mostly because I was in a sour mood at the time.

However, based on my own reactions to and interest in last Tuesday's events, I think that people may respond negatively to being exposed to the subject in places where they would not expect it-- Such as webcomics. I've been reading a lot of news and commentary about it, as well as seeking out new photos, but if I start reading an aticle on an entirely different subject, it feels to me like I'm being hit on the head, as every single article in the newspaper makes reference to the attacks, the destruction and the lives lost. It's all a bit much. I expect that people might be turned off if they're in the middle of reading some internet comics and they bump into Zwol and a harsh reminder of the times in which we live.

At any rate, I'm just going to be documenting my current state of mind (as always) and hope people don't mind.
