Well, its now been our first full year since the Launch of the new web site and thankfully I think I have worked most of the bugs out of the system. I hope you have all been enjoying the comics. I’ve been trying some different approaches with the comics lately. With Orville’s Story I wanted to try a more “comic book” dramatic storyline so that you can have an opportunity to know the characters better. Tho I still enjoy the single gag comic those storyline series add a nice element that allowed me to show you the “heart and soul” of the characters. I hope it has been as fun to read for you as it has been for me to write.
Though out the year I’ve been rediscovering new avenues of how to approach writing Hodges Pond. I have taken a lot of what I have learned and applied from Orville and Critter County into Hodges Pond and now with a full year behind us I wanted to take a moment to thank the most important people, YOU the reader. To those of you who have taken the time to comment I thank you for your words. I have appreciated your feed back and have been encouraged as well as enlightened by your comments. To the silent faithful reader, I also want to say thank you. This comic is for you. I look forward to new adventures in 2013 with this band of critters.
To those who enjoy the social media outlet, I encourage you to follow me on Twitter @HodgesPond. (I also welcome question and comments via twitter as well). I will always post a tweet when ever I add new content to this site. Also, in case you are wondering Hodges Pond is a weekly comic strip and I typically post once a week usually on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday as my schedule permits but regardless. That’s why I recommend using twitter as the best avenue to receive updates, I always send a tweet when ever this site is updated.
So, with now 52 comics behind me in 2012 I look forward to the next 52 in 2013. It is my hope that you will continue to make Hodges Pond a frequent stop along the road in 2013. I wish you all a prosperous and wonderful year and from all the gang down at Hodges Pond we’d like to be the first to wish you all a very happy new year!
