Last week we decided to start updating The Giant War twice a week (which is apparently called semi-weekly).
I was already laying out pages that had a natural mid-page break for reading on screen, so why not fully commit and actually split the page in to two updates. It’s not like I’m not already doing the work for it and it ups the frequency of releases, which could (should… will hopefully) lead to more readers. We want to keep it simple (a goal of The Giant War is to stay out of our own way), so the page dimensions still are the same and eventually when it’s printed I won’t have to do a ton of reformatting.
I need to point out that Warren’s post on the Shape of Webcomics a few months back stuck this in the back of my mind. Since then I’ve just been looking for a natural place to make the change. As we shifted from the one-off strips to a more linear period of storytelling, the opportunity presented itself.
So now you can get your Giant War fix semi-weekly! Mondays and Thursdays at http://thegiantwar.com.
Yes we got an actual domain as well. I still can’t believe it was available.
