Sometime over the past 24 hours, Charlatan passed 10,000 page views and I wanted to take a minute to thank those readers who have been following the comic over the past 3 months.
As we get ready to wrap up Issue 1 over the next 2 weeks, I hope you will agree that the best is yet to come.
Did some work on the site in my jammys this morning to clean up a couple of issues related to page links that were surfaced by a friendly reader in comments (thanks again).
No “Previous” Buttons
My particular WP theme isn’t optimized for webcomics so I am trying to do some creative workarounds to make it work (in the words of that modern-day philosopher, Tim Gunn). And since I am trying to post pages 2 days a week I need those workarounds to be pretty easy to replicate on each page. This morning I figured out an easy way to add a “Previous” button close to the Next button at the bottom of every page. Hopefully this will make reading Charlatan a better experience for all.
Some Links Open a New Window
I had a couple of random pages (Yes, I’m talking about you Page 13 & 14) that opened up a new window when the reader clicked “Next” to go to the next page. I have tracked those links down and had a very stern conversation with them. They now see the error of their ways and promise me it won’t happen again.
As we get closer to the climactic conclusion of Charlatan Issue 1, I thought it would be fun to give a wee tiny glimpse of what is coming up 3 issues from now.

Issue 4 is going to be a whole lot of fun. Unless you are the Halford family, that is….
