Note: The current story-arc begins at Strip 621
Well it was a good week off, and it went by way too fast. I accomplished my goal of doing nothing, so I'm proud of that.
Sometimes, when I was strapped for ideas, I would try to come up with ideas in terms of "A versus B". With a cast as large as the one I have going in C&A, this can break a writer's block. I would try to come up with a central conflict for a strip that involves two characters at odds that have never been at odds before. Casey vs. Andy happens all the time. What doesn't?
That's how I came up with one that was Quantum Cop vs. God. And the King of Sweden vs. Mary. That sort of thing. A fresh conflict makes for a fresh comic. I leave the finding of those particular strips as an exersize for the reader (being too lazy to dig them up myself).
