I'm pretty ambivalent about 'fanfic' and generally don't find interest in it or read it. However, I do find comic strips a different proposition although in general they are, of course, also fiction. And I find the occasional few pages of comic strip in FAB very welcome.

I take an interest in the artistry of comic strip (of subjects I have an interest in) including the style, technique and technicality. To a large extent they need to follow the designs of the original series (characters, scenic settings and machinery/vehicles) to be believable and representative, although, of course, the storyline can take a new or different direction.

Has Fanderson thought about commissioning a strip for serialisation in FAB. It might help to attract new members.
