Thanks dude. Love hearing feedback. Gavin and I have spent many hours putting it together (we're not close to finished). I love this comic and it's brought hours of entertainment into my life. It's everything I think a comic should be. This is our little contribution to help get the word out by educating new and old readers about the book in order to maintain and grow the fan base thus helping ensure that it stays on the stands for a while.

Hopefully, new readers aren't as daunted by the 170+ back issues when realize that they can fill in some blanks using the wiki.

I like it, but I think it can be even better and more detailed. It's better than I could have done though, as-is. I appreciate the time and hard work that went into it.

More detailed :?: :? I don't think Gavin could put any more detail into the the profiles and summaries. The guy is a living Savage Dragon encyclopedia.

Oh I know. It's just that when I read this kind of thing, I always want more... which probably says more about the effectiveness of your wiki than anything. ;)

But I could go with more action shots of various characters in their respective entries.

When I post an image of a character my main goal is to get the image that shows the most of the character which is usually from a panel of them just standing. A lot of times with Erik's d-list villains you're lucky to even get a clear image of just their head. Heck, for a lot of the Gang War-era villains the best shot of them is from Erik's pinup/poster of all of the little heads.

I do what I can, and while action shots are cool, I'd rather post images displaying the whole character. I could post two images (and I do that in some occasions) but it's time consuming and eats up the limited space I am allotted.

Oh I know. Maybe some day Erik could provide a few shots just for the wiki... wishful thinking, I know.

Heh, thanks.

One thing I'll eventually do is expand certain profiles. The main goal at first was to get profiles for everyone done and then move onto the issue summaries. The summaries will help expand the profiles and vice versa.

Then more stuff will be added. By that point I'll likely dislike a whole bunch of the original stuff and then go back and change a lot of it. Fun!

Yeah, I'd rather him just focus on drawing new comics.
