Chapter: English Literature in the Sixteenth Century
ONE. FRIGGIN'. YEAR.
Seriously, I can't believe it either. I'm really rather proud: after 267 strips, I'm still not bored. This comic is just as much fun to create now as it was when I started. Actually, it's probably even more fun, since I've got several of you fine people chatting about the comic every day. I can't tell you how many times your random asides have inspired comics, or simply prompted me to work harder when I could've slacked off
In the spring of 2009, when I originally got this crazy idea and drew the first few comics (only to sit on them for an entire year), I had no idea I'd still be cranking these strips out in 2011. Furthermore, I'd have never even considered that Lit Brick wouldn't just exist, but would actually be my primary, daily comic strip. It's the one comic I've created lately that I absolutely refuse to fail in updating. That's the achievement I'm really the most proud of: with the exception of three crappy excuses, Thanksgiving, and the week following Christmas, not a weekday has passed without a new comic. Furthermore, there were several weekends with comics as well. Oh, I'll admit, they're hardly all brilliant, but I'd like to think that there's more hits in these archives than misses.
So, as I've said in the past, thank you. I'd have given up long ago without your support.

Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. For more of Jodie's work, visit longtalljodie.com!
