So November is upon us, and that means (like it has for the last three years) that UnCONventional is temporarily going five days a week for a special story event.
When I first did this, it was the serious character piece I Hate November. I like to say that these characters lead full, normal lives, and we just get to see the funny moments in the comic. Knowing it was a risk doing a storyline without jokes, I still tried it - but thankfully people stuck with it and seemed to like the story.
In the two years that followed though, while I did special November storylines (In the Beginning, The Election), they ended up being just standard arcs that would have fit in at any other part of the comic. Originally I was planning on doing that again this year, with an extended version of the Max/Veronica story that we saw this last month...
So with this last Thursday's comic, we're finally going to deal with this head on. I know this may not be everyone's cup of tea, as the comic is normally about convention jokes, but I think exploring the characters like this is worth it.
And if you don't like it, the good news is the comic returns to normal come December 2nd. Until then though, please enjoy "You Can't Go Home Again."
