The previous strip evoked a lot of discussion on the what where and how of Selkie’s origin and the reactions of people to her “not-human” status that I found interesting. I must admit, it’s fascinating reading everyone’s ideas and speculations about Selkie. I’ve been more and more eager to get to this “citizenship form” mini-reveal for a while now, and I’m very keen to see where this takes everyone.

Additionally, I had a technical question for everyone. It’s been brought to my attention that the Secret Director Commentary alt-text is difficult to read for some people because it does not stay active long enough. I use Firefox 4, and for me the alt-text on an image remains up for as long as I keep the cursor perfectly still (which for me means taking my hand of the mouse). Does alt-text have a time-limit on other browsers? What does everyone think? Should I try to keep the alt-text short and sweet in the future?

Also, I accidentally typed the strip’s dialogue in Times New Roman instead of Lucida Sans without noticing my error (Typography 101: Pay attention to font! >_<). This may work out though, because TNR is a smaller font so I can fit more wordy dialogue into the comic (like Grandma’s reading-out-loud). But because it’s a smaller font I think it’s also a bit more difficult to read. I’d love feedback on the font, if any.

Today's edition of the Secret Commentary is empty, because Dave failed to come up with something for it.
