  1. Ok, admittedly I did just make an appointment with an optometrist to see if I need glasses for the first time. BUT… does anyone else often find the comics difficult to read? The text in the first panel, for example, I could barely guess at even after zooming in.

    Perhaps, if I’m not alone, there might be a way to let readers open a higher quality image so we we can zoom in and not miss anything?

    That said, I loved the absurdity of this scene and it gave me flashbacks to some of my stranger job experiences.

    • That is something I unfortunately overlooked with the first panel — I apologize for the difficulty ?! I will remedy this by the next update with clearer text. Thanks for letting me know.

    • You’re not alone, I have to zoom in to read any of it. But it’ll be fixed in the future, so that’s good! :) I like this so far.

    • Me too! And I already have glasses. I’d love to be able to click for an HD version to both read the text and properly appreciate the art.
