After the longest first day ever we're taking a little break, so here's a guest comic by Marlee-the-Creator starting one of her characters. Be sure to check out her comic I Accidentally the Universe, her Doodle blog (I think that's what it's called) Shut Me Up and look out for her upcoming project Locked.

We're thinking of redesigning the site to look less... brown, but don't worry, we won't pull a youtube and take away random features from beneath your feet. One thing though, I (and this is I because Giga and Box are neutral on it) was thinking of adding in an adbox to the comic pages. It would be small and just below the comic to be un-intrusive and it'll be a Project Wonderful ad so you could bid on it for your own comics but I feel it's best to ask you, the readers, as you'll be looking at it.

Should Level 30 Psychiatry get an ad box: Yes, Yes, but only one that gives the money to Comic Fury or No? I have no illusions about living off the ad revenue (especially considering I'd have to split it 3 ways first) but the extra pennies might take the bite off of putting our own ads on other sites. Post your answer in the comments below or PM any of us. Or angrily shout in the street about us selling out.

This is certainly one of my favorite guest comics so far! I love the punchline, and the Kingdom Hearts reference was cute, too. Thanks, Marlee!! ^_^

I dunno what Guybrush is all about, but I actually really dig the brown site layout. It feels psychiatric. I've seen a lot of other comics use this default template, but I honestly believe our comic complements it the best. You can be assured that I'll be fighting for it against Guybrush's bright yellow redesign. ;)

Personally I'd spring for a white one with heavy hospital themes.
Like, all the buttons could be room signs or something. Or all on one big directory.
But I do like the current one, when I first started out doing this I actually thought it was a custom design on Guy's part or something.

Of course, it helps that the default background of the comic's themselves are different hues of the colors used for the layout.

I'm actually with Giga here, I've always thought that the site layout and colour scheme is pretty classy.
And I think that if you want an adbox you should go for it! If your work is drawing in enough people you might as well get some recompense for your time.

Absolutely you should advertise.

You're doing a free comic on the internet... It's not like trying to get a couple pennies here and there to throw at advertising costs is going to ruin your artistic integrity or some junk like that.

I agree. Nobody'll think anything of an ad on a free webcomic; if anything, it's expected.
KitKat (Guest) edit delete reply
I agree. But put it under the navigation controls, not between the comic and the navigation buttons!

You're welcome. :3 I feel honored that you guys put it up here.

I don't think I'd mind an adbox. It would be helping out someone else which is really cool of you.

For the ad: Totally! Go for it! You three have been doing such wonderful jobs on this webcomic; you deserve some money from ads!

For the layout: I like it just how it is. The brown layout just seems so classy and perfect fitting. Besides, if it's not broke, don't fix it!

We're hoping for more of an "upgrade" than a "fix." We've got 53 non-guest strips uploaded (that's just over a year's worth of weeklies!) and an incredible friend of ours offered to redo the site for free, so why not take our game up a level? ;)

who let the turrets out!

black mage is the one who let the turrets out

I'm sorry, bro, but I'm legitimately confused. Neither Black Mage nor turrets are actually featured in this strip.

I do like they layout as it is, but the idea for a more hospital-ish looks is also intriguing. As for ads, I wouldn't mind at all! As long as they're unobtrusive! Which I trust you guys wouldn't make them ridiculous anyway.

I'm back, with absolutely nothing to declare.

Yeah, I'd prefer a new layout. The colors just look kind of boring to me. I think a hospital layout (or at least color scheme) would be a lot more interesting.

As for ads, sure, go ahead. I personally don't mind since I use Adblock, but whatever floats your boat.
Comics are great edit delete reply
I'm back! And from being away for so long I went insane, anyway what the hell is that dog-human thing with the tail? *~* (CaG)

That's my personal character I portray myself as on the interwebz. It's a anthropomorphic snow leopard.
