And we have arrived at the end of this short story. If you guessed that the entire point of this little adventure was to change Mike’s hair…you might be on to something. Sure, we could have just changed it and called it an “art upgrade” or a “hair cut”, but this way was much more fun.

We have been wanting to make this change for a while, as a part of our general improvements to the strip, which started last year with the adoption of the larger format, and the new font. You’ve also probably noticed that we adopted a 4 panel format which we use from time to time. I think that gives us the capability to tell more intricate stories, and even just jokes that need a little more setup time.

The drum of progress beats ever onward, but we always like to hear what you have to say about the work we do. So if you like Mike’s new hair, or preferred that old spikey look, let us know in the comments. And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for comic updates and additional content.
