Ladies and gentlemen, Sluggy Freelance
has Jumped the Shark. I'm dropping it from my rotation after many years of faithful reading. After wrapping up a long, well-done, emotionally-intense storyline a few months back, the strip took a side-track into a confusing dead end that even Pete admits he never quite got the hang of.
He's dropped that, and gone back to the main characters -- but all of the momentum from "That Which Redeems" has been lost.
If Pete ever recaptures the Nifty, please let me know.
