The PCW T-shirt campaign has closed. Even though we didn’t make the goal, Teespring.com is fulfilling orders for everyone who wanted one. To those of you who preordered a shirt, thank you for your support!
As I approach the 16th year anniversary of the strip (which happens in two weeks), I’ve been reflecting on the PC Weenies as a whole, and whether or not I should continue making the comic after the current storyline winds up.
I’ve gone through this thought process before, but I’m not sure if I can shake it off this time around. While there is a vocal audience for the comic, the matter-of-fact truth is that PC Weenies doesn’t have a large enough readership to sustain it anymore.
I’m not sure exactly what happened. Perhaps readers are turned off by the serialized storytelling. Perhaps people have moved on from my brand of tech humor. Perhaps there’s just too much great stuff on the Internet competing for readership and audience attention. I don’t really know.
But I do know this:
Part of me loves the strip and hates to see it end, and another part of me looks forward to taking on something new. Anyway, that’s all for now. See you next week.
