Subject: Plok comic strip
Last week we reached the milestone of 64 episodes of the weekly Plok comic strip.
Being a computer nerd, any power of 2 is way more significant than a puny multiple of 10, so 64 episodes is massive for us. We've flipped over to 7 bits now for the episode counter!
It also means I've drawn 256 individual full colour comic panels. Two Hundred And Fifty Six. A whole byte's worth.
The Plok strip is by far the longest running comic I've ever done, and I'm really grateful to everyone who's supported it, retweeted it, made a comment underneath an episode, said a kind word about it, or just read it. Hopefully we'll keep going for another 64 episodes at least.
And I especially want to thank all those of you who've supported the Patreon campaign for the comic. That's really made a difference to us, and kept me in Bristol Board and Rotring ink for the last few months.
If you like the comic, you can still support the Patreon for just $1 an episode, and you get to see all my layout sketches and pencils for each strip every week.
