I’ve been thinking about starting a new comic strip for a while, but I don’t have much time to do that while maintaining Rescue Archaeology. I had briefly considered putting Rescue Archaeology on hiatus while I worked on that strip, but experience has taught me that I would get nothing done and just wind up crawling back.

Meanwhile, I realized that whatever I do, it’s going to involve dinosaurs (and other prehistoric animals) in some capacity, and most of my ideas are similar to dinosaur comics that have been part of Rescue Archaeology already.

So, with all of that in mind, I am going to use Wednesdays as a day to explore various ideas and formats for this theoretical new strip. For now at least, Monday and Friday are still going to be normal Rescue Archaeology comics (whatever that means), and rest assured that even when/if the new strip takes off, I don’t have any plans to abandon Rescue Archaeology.

Anyway, I just thought you might like an explanation for why today’s comic is more rectangular than normal.

    Ha! Well, as long as they didn’t use chickens to fill in the DNA sequencing gaps it might have been OK, but then there wouldn’t be any point to the movie – unless all the dinosaurs had wings and were birds of prey that could swoop down and pick up humans. But then why have a dinosaur park unless you had a death wish? Now if the dinosaurs did have those long frog tongues, the insect population could have been at serious risk and the park would have probably faced an ecosystem failure. And the pterosaurs would have been snatched from the sky. But what if only some of the dinosaurs had these tongues? And what if…

    As John Hammond learned, what appears to be fantastic in your imagination is sometimes less than wonderful in reality.

    Okay, I think we need to film your version of the movie now!
