How do you read Schlock?
« on: April 22, 2011, 02:43:26 PM »
Some TV shows I like to watch when they air, and some I like to watch all at once when they're out on DVD. 

Some webcomics I like to read as soon as they come out, like http://www.harkavagrant.com/.  And some I like to wait a while and let them build up a bit, like http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php

How you like to read Schlock Mercenary?

Regardless of the type of comic, I always wait until the graphic novel comes out.

How do I read Schlock Mercenary? Let me count... nah. I just bring them up daily in my browser. At noon, right now (I live in Japan). Nice chuckle before lunch. Or after lunch, for part of the year. But I read them  day by day.

Man,  I didn't even think about graphic novels.  I mean, I own three or four of the Schlock books, but I I got those long after I read the comics.

I keep up daily with Schlock. I don't like waiting on the next installment to finish. I guess I'm just impatient sometimes.

I really like the iPad app, except for the fact that it's 3 hours behind the website when a new comic gets released. =\
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

I use the RSS feed via Google Reader on my Google Homepage.  Of course, this just means I check it first thing every morning when I get in!  Thanks, Howard.

RSS, website, iPhone, iPad, and Photoshop. Oh, and sometimes I re-read it from the original Word documents.

Yeah yeah, Howard. Though I noticed it started updating at 11:00 p.m. this week, which is good.

I read it every sunday, so I can get a week's worth of comics in one go. I feel like it makes story flow better.

I do cheat a lot though, if I like the current plotline. And if I do read it on a sunday, I have to squint my eyes to make sure I don't read the current comic while I find last monday's in the archive. Ah, well.

I do this with pretty much every webcomic I read.
