A general observation

In the mind of some readers, the two most recent strips account for a gigantic part of their overall impression of the comic. If they like the strips, Sandra and Woo is one of the funniest comics on the web. If they don’t like them, Sandra and Woo has jumped the shark twice and will never become good again. This attitude was definitely less pronounced in the early years of Sandra and Woo. This is quite puzzling to me since the newest strips account for such a tiny fraction of the complete works nowadays.

Many people also don’t seem to understand that I can’t predict at all how well a strip will be received unless it’s obviously a spectacular one. [1052] Core Memory was universally loved, the most recent one [1061] Anonymous Tip not so much. But before publication, I pretty much had the same “This is an okay strip.” mindset about both strips!
