Spotlight Sunday 8.27.17

Welcome to another Spotlight Sunday, in which I share my thoughts on a single comic, selected by you, the reader, from the week’s purchases. As with the inaugural post, there was something of a paucity of votes on this week’s Weigh In Wednesday post, despite the fact that I added a polling option to simplify […]

Spotlight Sunday 8.20.17

Welcome to the first-ever Spotlight Sunday, in which I focus on one comic from my Wednesday purchases! In theory, the comic in the Spotlight is selected by you, the theoretical reader, based on a listing of the week’s purchases that I provide in the Weigh In Wednesday post.

As I devote more time and energy (and, ideally, money) to growing the OpenDoor Comics online presence, one of the steps I mentioned I would be taking is engaging in more blogging. Towards that end, though I must admit that I’m not that much of a fan of “theme” posts in general, today I’m launching […]

For the purposes of this post, though, there’s one problem in particular that I’m grappling with though in fairness, the problem is made up of several smaller problems, and it’s […]

Still Open

Still Open

I know, it’s been a while, and not very much has seemed to happen in that time. Not here, at any rate. That’s not because I’ve given up on OpenDoor Comics, but the fact of the matter is that what I had hoped would happen so far, well, hasn’t. What had I hoped? Mostly that […]

Don’t Just Wish

Don’t Just Wish

Sorry for the “radio silence” lately, but there have been a few things going on in the world outside the OpenDoor that have been stealing my time and attention.  None of which I’ll get into here, because it’s all boring and it doesn’t really matter (in this context). Regardless, I’m checking in once again and […]
