Chris MJune 30, 2010 at 10:27 pm
Hey, if it makes the story more interesting it’s fine with me. Besides, it’s your strip, you can do what you want! Have fun!
skolsJune 30, 2010 at 10:36 pm
Definitely digging it!
duneJune 30, 2010 at 10:37 pm
Bernieh, take all the time you want, just keep the lulz coming.

Man I could throw a whole book o’ paragraphs here about dealing with the direction of one’s own creation but I won’t load you down. Can I just suggest that you’re worrying about it too much. If it’s giving you a positive creative direction you should just roll with it. Seems like you’re only getting upset because you’re getting upset, but aside from that you think you’re doing a good thing.
Some people will like it more and some people will like it less, but that’s always true. If you like what you’re creating then that should be good enough.
RafaJune 30, 2010 at 11:27 pm
we love you too dude! keep going!
prunellaJune 30, 2010 at 11:43 pm

spinnJuly 1, 2010 at 12:33 am
although p.s.: I do a good job of sounding like the voice of wisdom but man do I wish I could follow my own advice
AntJuly 1, 2010 at 12:44 am
Ok Bernieh, it’s storytime. Once upon a time there were a couple of NYC artists who tried something different, and became very popular and won a lot of fans. Then they went off and tried a few things which didn’t work and lost quite a few of those fans, but the true ones stuck with them. Then they went back to doing what they always did in order to win back all those fickle fans. They carefully scripted their public statements so as to alienate as few fans as possible, and apologetically distanced themselves from their “mistakes”, so they sounded more like politicians than artists. On the rare occasion they created any new art, it was a formulaic rehash, without any soul or integrity. Sure they remained popular, but their faithful fans felt betrayed and came to hate them.
It shouldn’t be too hard to figure out who I’m talking about (although I’d be curious of the guesses of anyone reading this; there may be many fitting the description). My point is, trust your artistic instincts and don’t compromise your integrity. Any fans you lose weren’t worth having.
p.s. I won’t apologise for the Australian-English spelling! ;-)

Keep it going, don’t short change us by cutting corners with the story, do it at your own pace.
In short loving it.
TristanJuly 1, 2010 at 3:23 am
Well, you know, long storyline or short one-strip gag, it’s still Preston & Abe, THE Preston & Abe i started loving with strip #1, and as long as they remain true to themselves, i will keep loving them.
And seriously, even if it DOES take forever, even if i howl to the moon when you skip an update, i mean, man, common’ ! a scene like the cash cab ? Well worth waiting.
- What webcomic…
- ALP !
- Incorrect, the answer was XKCD
- It’s always one of these two, it was 50/50

one more for the dig column
Mother Goose nursery rhyme:
To market, to market, to buy a fat pig,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog,
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.

HoppervalleyJuly 1, 2010 at 2:01 pm
Keep It up man still love the strips, delayed or otherwise
mbJuly 1, 2010 at 2:38 pm
Keep ‘em coming.
Craig K. BartleyJuly 1, 2010 at 3:13 pm
Ok Ant, I give up. Who were the NYC artists? I initially thought Metallica but they are from California.
waJuly 1, 2010 at 4:38 pm
Bernie H.July 1, 2010 at 5:32 pm
Thanks for the support everyones! I know I’m probably worrying too much but you know, that probably makes me normal.
ShaneJuly 1, 2010 at 9:30 pm
Loving the whole storyline, I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting to create something you are happy with regardless of the amount of time it takes. After Bill Watterson, you come to mind as an comic strip creator who cares about the craft and the telling your story. Sticking with the comic strip theme: don’t ever feel like you are Gary Trudeau, I wouldn’t wish that fate on Tom Wilson.
Scr1bbl3July 2, 2010 at 2:51 am
Always worth coming back to for diamond moments like “your mom’s on the phone”. Still makes me larf till I cry.
chuomingJuly 2, 2010 at 4:29 am
Clinton has to be my favourite character in this comic
TrogJuly 2, 2010 at 11:58 am
I’m all excited to see where they end up and who they meet. Loving the comic as always. It’s always worth the wait. Keep up the fantastic work, man!
AlexJuly 2, 2010 at 12:40 pm
I loves the yuks and the story’s pretty tangential. Still, this one’s interesting and worth waiting around for. Keep up the good work!
Marvin_ArnoldJuly 2, 2010 at 6:08 pm
May I suggest anyone who nags about this comic make a better Alien/Predator action figure comic strip?
ZedJuly 4, 2010 at 5:44 am
This storyline is pretty good, keep it going :-)
JonoJuly 6, 2010 at 8:23 am
The storyline’s great man! If people didn’t like it they wouldn’t read it so jus be happy so many of us keep coming back and keep up the good work!
AntJuly 8, 2010 at 7:15 pm
@Craig K. Bartley: I had KISS in mind (specifically Gene and Paul), but I like your Metallica suggestion. It’s a cautionary tale…
BazmJuly 10, 2010 at 11:51 am
Keep up the good work ALP is THE most awesome web comic ever!
