The Future Looms... something that hasn't happened yet...

I find myself thinking about the future incarnation of Suburban Jungle a lot, lately -- to the point where it's getting difficult to concentrate on finishing up the -current- version. Among other things, SJ is going to become more print-focused. "Being a webcomic" is no longer sufficient gimmick to make something special -- there are tons of webcomics any more. And while SJ will always have that it was an "early adopter" as a piece of its history and character, it isn't 1999 any more, and just being a webcomic is not enough.

This has got me pretty nervous, actually. To stand out as a print comic, SJ is going to need a serious ratchet up in both the writing and the art quality. Changing to the new format will help with that, but I also need to invest the work. I am confident that I can do it, but it's still a daunting task. I need to level up, as they say! And the only ways to do that are training and experience.

Much to ponder. Much to do! If anybody has suggestions on ways I can improve, I'd love to hear them. :)
