I haven't done this in recent years, but while working through the sequence of the last few comics in the chapter, it dawned on me that comic 850 - "Dirty Dishes", was out of sequence. I needed to happen right after 843 - "He's a Fanboy", which would allow the Largo's little Engames story to flow much better. Complicating this desire to move this strip was all the guest strips and DPD stuff that happened right smack in the middle of them.
So, after moving that strip to its proper place, bunching the DPD and Guest strips together and having them fall in the break between the Anna Millers scene and Largo's story, everything should be in order. I placed a 'moved to' mark on the comics that moved (except for the Guest and DPDs where i just removed the comic number completely). THe rants are still in the same order, just the comic order changed. The only thing that seems kinda screwy about it are the dates, but i left those to reflect the actual day the comic was made.
You can review the changes by starting here and reading things in order.
For those of you who pay way too much attention to details, here's what changed:
850 became 844 (episode 85 became episode 83)
845 (guest strip) did not change
847 became 846 (DPD)
848 became 847 (Guest Strip)
849 became 848 (Guest Strip)
844 became 849 (episode 83 became episode 84)
846 became 850 (episode 84 became episode 85)
851 became 851 (episode 86 did not change)
I think it flows tons better, and comic 851 was done with this shift already in mind. I know that it is revisionist history in some ways, and it changes how the comic is experienced compared to how you read it when it came out, but its makes things less disjointed and work better. :)
In order to stay on schedule i have four comics to do over the next four days :) I'm challenging myself to see if i can have a convention here without missing comics. I haven't been able to do it in a long time, but we'll see if i can pull it off this time :)
