Help me get back into this!
« on: 17 May 2011, 02:06 »

I used to read this comic from sometime in 2003 up until 2008. In September 2008 i went out travelling the world and i stopped reading my webcomics. Now i want to pick it up again but it's too much work reading up on 2 years of comics so could you please tell me roughly where the storyline has gone since then or direct me to a place that sums up the comic if such a place exist.

I would be really grateful for all the help i could get regarding this matter. I want to get back into this but i simply don't have the time to read through all that i missed. Also, i think Jeph would be glad to have one more faithful reader.

Thanks in advance.

You can look in the wiki (thanks, Is it cold in here?!).
There is a strip-by-strip summary (thanks, Jwhouk!).

Or you can take the time (you don't have to rush it, do you?) to catch up.  :-)

Basically, after a couple more spats, Dora and Marten broke up*.  They have settled down afterwards, but we are still looking for more working out of their feelings about it.  Marten has started going to a different coffee shop (The Secret Bakery), and hasn't yet faced Dora again (he tried, but she was out, moving house).  Today's strip is part of a negotiation between the bosses of tSB and CoD about supplying cakes and coffee respectively to each other.  Oh, and Faye and Angus are dating seriously.


The forum imploded at this, and as a result now has hands-on moderation - which I hope is seen as an improvement.

A quick synopsis of major plot points form the last 2 1/2 years of QC:

You really need to read the comic from about 1750 to now to be fully up to speed.

Raven has left CoD and is now pursuing an advanced degree in particle physics at an un-named University. She hasn't been seen since, well about the time you stopped reading. She has been put on a bus, so to speak


...or not.
