When I started this webcomic, I assumed I’d be drawing it in a void for the first year or two. I figured the only people who would know of it’s existence would be my family and friends. To be honest, I liked the idea. You only get one chance to make a first impression and I didn’t want to reveal my strip to the world until I felt it was ready. Of course, the problem with that logic is that, knowing my perfectionism, I’d never feel the comic was ready and would keep it in a deep, dark well, never to see the light of day – much like Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs.

Well, that time has passed. “Bug” has taken off and found an audience all on it’s own. I blame Twitter. Part of me is nervous. I’m still figuring out how to do fairly basic things on website design and sometimes I feel like I entered a gross, newborn baby, still covered in afterbirth in a beauty contest. “She’ll get cuter! Give her time! Lemme wipe some of this goo off.” I shout. But I can’t deny how wonderful it feels to watch the amount of visitors I get steadily rise.

This feeling of euphoria peaked a couple of days ago when I received an email from the host of a podcast called “The Dish”. It’s a podcast that focuses on webcomics and comics as a whole, hosted by two guys and a girl (sans pizza place). The host informed me that “Bug” was going to be reviewed on their latest episode. You can check it out here. My review comes in at around 28 minutes in. It’s a fun podcast to listen to – and I’m not just saying that. I’m planning on listening to their next one.
