Website news! Behold, readers, you have asked and so shall you receive: you can now leave comments on the Family Man site! Just hit the little comment counter in the blog post header (right under the comic) and you’ll be on your way. Next up I’ll make it a bit easier to read around in the blog archives, too.

When I originally designed the site I intentionally kept comments off of it. Too often online comments sections get overrun by jerks. But you gang are the Best Readers, smart and funny and thoughtful and patient and almost creepily supportive. When I started the comic, LiveJournal was still a vital community, and I got a 95% of your comments there. Now I interact with you all in a much more scattershot fashion through Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter…it’s just not as fun. So. Please leave comments there; I’ll be so happy to see you all in one place again.

Relatedly: I’ll be recording a podcast today. I’m taking questions – about the comic, about freelancing, anything! – you can leave them in comments here, on the site, or in my Tumblr ask box.

Very last thing: Lauren Davis over at ComicsAlliance posted the world’s nicest write-up of Family Man. CA folk get rewarded for hits on their content, so show her some appreciation by clicking through and reading her thoughts.

Huh. Seems to be functioning now - tell me if it fritzes out on you again. I just upgraded WP so Comicpress might be adjusting to the notion.

Yeah, it showed up an hour or two later - don't have it open anymore but I think it was giving me the "Page not found" on that ID. Hopefully just a hiccup.

I'm going to have to go through the archives when I have time; I don't recall Lucien's "mild aversion to sunlight". ^_^

I hadn't even realized you have an LJ, and I've been reading for years. Well, then! I guess I will at last tell you how much I love your work! I look forward to every Friday. Thanks for sharing your wonderful art and storytelling!

I also have talked about you in my LJ recently, if you want to see.

As a heads up, I may be missing the obvious, but I can't find the comments on the new page. I go to lutherlevy.com, scroll down to the latest news, click where it says "20 comment" [sic] and get to a page with the journal entry (and some heading stuff)... but no comments.

OHO! I have tried in Safari, and there they are.

Your new comments page appears to disagree with Chrome, at least on my Mac OS X.

(Love the comic, by the way.)
