Pitface asked people how doing webcomics has helped to shore up your teetering mental state this past year. We got some responses to that and we also added our own thoughts to it. It's an interesting question though isn't it? This is a webcomic focused site, we're all creative people so webcomics tend to be a big outlet for us. How does having personal control over something YOU create and that YOU are responsible for, help you stay stable and centered when the rest of the world has seems pretty chaotic, with the crazy virus and the even madder, childish politics coming from the top leadership of the world's biggest superpower?

Gunwallace is ill this week with a damaged back and wasn't able to create a theme for us. This is the first time ever in all the years he's been doing themes that he's ever missed a Quackcast. He's in quite a bit of pain and discomfort. We wish you well Gunwallace!!
So for the musical feature this week I've delved into our huge archive of tracks (about 351!) and picked one of my faves to replay, the theme to BARBARIAN ADVENTURE: Lenny Kravitz hard rock. Love it. LOVE IT!

I can't keep up with Discord, moves too fast for me.

Once again, a great Quackcast on a much pressing subject. And indeed, as helping and fulfilling an artistic endavour, like webcomics, can be in pressing times, it is also extraordinarily helping and fulfilling to have such a warm, open-minded and supportive community to turn to, like this one. No one should feel afraid to take a step back from their projects now and then. Don't worry about it, I say. Feel free and content to let go and simply just engage with the rest. Lately I've actually sighted on becoming a little bit more detached from my webcomics, keeping in mind that this is just a hobby, not a job. In the end I'm doing this stuff to entertain me, however a like it, and leave the audience, as much as I appreciate having one, an afterthought. I actually did pop in engaging on the Discord for like a week ago or some such, after being radio silent over there for months. Maybe this time around I can keep up with things over there^^
