    Yes, no matter how often we commenters made jokes about the comic, let’s face it: we stuck around because Pab’s work is smart and funny. Thank you, Pab. We’ll miss you, Queen Vic.

    And so the 15 year experiment comes to an end. Growing out of what I thought was a one time joke on someone else’s LiveJournal, it took on a life of its own. At one point I thought it might last a couple of months.

    Then I moved it from just LiveJournal onto Comics Sherpa, where it caught the eye of John Glynn and was one of a handful of strips (most notably the Argyle Sweater) he selected over time to move to the main GoComics page. He and I shared a joke that our relationship was just like that of William Randolph Hearst and George Herriman, in that Hearst kept the strip in print because he wanted to read it.

    In the end, the strip outlived both of its original homes: LiveJournal and Comics Sherpa.

    Our supporting cast in the background today represent almost every “supporting cast” production piece I had in PhotoImpact or on my hard drive. The exceptions tend to be from variations on a character (although I did include a few Victoria variants and Edward’s doppelganger Renfrew). Do not ask me to name them all; there are some who I forgot who they were. I also deliberately chose not to include Fearless Leader; I’ve had enough of him and don’t want to give him any more brain time.

    I just ran out of space (I didn’t know there was a maximum comment size) and had to take out two paragraphs so I had room to end properly. As for what comes next, I’m going back to writing hoping to finish my next novel and next play. At the same time, by friend S.P. Burke (a great writer in his own right and a much better artist than I) are at work on a new strip. It will be more mainstream than TNAOQV, but will still feature our subversive senses of humor. If we can pull it off, it will probably come out in a year or two. If not, well, we’ll go do something else.

    Thank you all for fifteen years of mediocre jokes and horrible art. It was fun for me and I hope you found it funny, too. — Pab

    I have enjoyed Pab’s quirky, oft times not understandable to me, until posters explained what was meant, humour. (Spelt in keeping with her Maj’s vocabulary style.)

    I hope you and Mr. Burke’s new work will make it to Gocom, Pab.

    Not following comments everyday, I am wondering if you are still in your New York (state of mind) home that you fund drove for. It would be a terrible waste for all the help you got only to not keep the place.

    See you back in the funny papers, I hope ! :-)

    Another latecomer here. Pab, I just wanted to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed reading and learning from TNAOQV. As an example of the latter, I had to look up a reference in yesterday’s strip because—believe it or not—I’ve never seen “Fiddler on the Roof.” I wish you nothing but the best in your future creative endeavors.
