Since I originally started this thread to record my progress on TWC, I'm gonna add an update.
Holy shit, when Scythe and I started this comic I totally expected months and months and MONTHS of obscurity, yet here we are at 48th place and still climbing. Granted the first 3 weeks we basically got nothing, and finished at 96th place, but this month has been amazing for DP.
In the last 6 days alone DP has gotten more votes than in almost all the other days combined for both months, it just blows me away. I estimate that DP will finish this month in the 20-30 range, which is a lot better than I had hoped for.
With all the garbage I have to put up with in my life right now, I can honestly say that this is one of the few things that can still cheer me up.
to small successes, and good luck to the rest of you.
