FIRST, Danielle Corsetto’s GWS collection leads to a discussion of “complete” collections and hardcover books in general. NEXT, Creation vs Learning — which is more important? THEN, it’s the perennial question – How do I get more Patreon backers? FOURTH, should experienced webcartoonists be more open to offering critiques when asked?
