In a few weeks\' time, Smack Jeeves is going to undergo a (much-needed and long overdue) website redesign. Judging from the single preview I\'ve seen so far, it will be mandatory for comics to have a cover page for them to appear in the website\'s search results, meaning that this comic will need to have a cover page of its own, as well. That means you can expect the comic to have not only a new cover page, but also a new comic logo to go with the page. If the banner isn\'t made obsolete by the cover page, I\'ll also make a new banner to better-reflect the comic in its current form.
I\'m also thinking of making the old sprite comics less prominent, due to their age and rather poor quality giving a vastly different impression of what the comic is doing now for people who click the \"start reading\" button. I couldn\'t get rid of them completely because they\'re important to the comic\'s history, but I also don\'t want people to think that they\'re a mandatory read since, looking back, a number of them are in poor taste. There\'s still a lot of the sprite comics I think hold up pretty well, but since the first ones are really, um, bad, I think it\'s discouraging people from checking out the later ones.
