I have to ask why two of your series, I believe Demo and one other one, had painfully but enjoyably thick first volumes and very skinny second volumes. Why is that? I've read most of your work and even practice cartooning by trying to copy your panels but I ask the only thing that has frustrated me: Why did the enjoyment factor and possible back pain :p lessen with a shorter second volume? Thank you.
That's a pretty good question, and in the case of Demo was probably purely due to scheduling. Becky and I did the first Demo early in our careers when we were trying to establish ourselves. By the time we did Demo 2, we were much busier and juggling multiple projects. A shorter second series was all that was possible, if we were going to do anything at all. First Demo: 12 stories, second Demo: 6 stories.
