So the reason David is pretty cool for doing that story is… for one thing, the first sex comic is not an easy thing for a cartoonist to do. Believe me, I know.
And on top of that, a sex comic featuring established characters you’ve been drawing for years? Quite difficult…
And presented in-canon, in a way that doesn’t disrupt the context of the original work? Oh my gosh…
But he did it, and in this sex comic expert’s opinion, he did a fine job. And he’ll be doing it again!
(and it’ll get easier pretty quickly… like it won’t be long before you go from “oh my god I’m really doing this” to “WELP TIME TO DRAW SOME MORE DICKS” and I know someone drew a comic about this… was it Megan Rose?)
It really helps that he has a great audience. I’m not just saying that because a million of them subscribed to Slipshine (though it certainly helps)… but let’s just say not every webcomic audience would have been this accepting. It was certainly a surprise to many people, many had… questions, but overall most everyone has been left feeling… quite good about the whole thing.
Which is how things should be. Over the years I have questioned why erotica’s gotta have such a stigma attached to it, have been hoping things would become less so as time went by. One of Slipshine’s goals has been to help with that.
So overall, the whole experience has helped give me some hope for the future. Thank you. And that has been my Tumblr speech. Umm, peace out!
