I hope these haven't been asked before: After Penny and Aggie, what made you decide to write a comic about gender/sexuality issues, out of all the topics and genres you could have written about? Furthermore, why make Sara and Lisa the protagonists instead of starting with a fresh setting?

I don't think I'd ever get tired of Aggie, but maybe that's just me, haha =P. You are right, though - P&A became a much different comic by the end. Oddly, one of the elements that came out of left field toward the end of the series (that I really enjoyed, I'll add) was the "horror arc" where Charlotte kidnaps Cyndi.
Have you ever thought about writing a dedicated horror story somewhere down the line? I'm talking like some serious, Tomitake-claws-his-own-throat-out level freakiness. I think you would be really good at it.
Edit: Come to think of it, have you ever considered doing a visual novel?
And on a similar note: Have you considered taking another stab at writing for print, perhaps something for the literary graphic novel audience that enjoys memoirs like Fun Home or even experimental works like Asterios Polyp?

(In the strip, you mentioned it was the 'first' one, but in a Q&A in the other thread you said that the next time would be more of the winners from the first one.)
