All the Retail strips that will run this week (11/5 – 11/10) were inspired by fan emails. They’re all true stories that readers have sent in, and I’ve adapted to the strip.
The concept of using fan stories in Retail has been suggested since its inception, but I haven’t actually put it into practice until now. Retail isn’t exactly a “reader write-in” strip, but I enjoy hearing the stories from fans and have always thought it would be fun to use their suggestions from time to time. “Fan Week” is the way I’ve finally decided to go about it. I hope it’s enjoyed.
Thanks to everyone who’s written in over the years!
