Eye of the Dragon

"Was that a shark in that tank?" "Let me check my notes..."

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.
