Strips up until now have been ludicrously inflated, even by webcomic standards. This section of the Dead Library marks the point when my works go from hilariously overextended comics to tedious, poorly written short stories with bad illustrations where the descriptive text would be.

To quote Shakespeare, "Brevity is the Soul of wit." This is a concept many webcomic authors fail to grasp, as you can plainly see. I'd be lying if I said I didn't struggle with it to this day from time to time, but my general rule is that if 50% or more of the panel is text, it needs trimming.
