Cast List
« on: 10 Dec 2012, 11:36 »

I just went to the cast list page not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised with the fact that Jeph has maintained it better than most other webcomic artists do. Is this reaction unusual?

The only critiques I could give is that he should put the cast in some kind of order and include a link to the character's first appearance in the comic. But I admit that sounds like a lot of work and wouldn't expect him to do it.

Maintaining it isn't really how it's been.  Some years ago the cast list was so out of date that Jeph just took it down (he took away the links, but it was still there if you knew the URL, in fact).  Then only a few months ago he made a new one, but the cast has grown so much that it wasn't complete.  I expect it will stay like it is for a long time now...

I too was quite surprised to see it as up-to-date as it is...seeing other webcomics with nothing is kinda a bummer.

Namesake keeps theirs current.  It's a rare feat, though.

It's pretty clear that Jeph updated the page shortly after introducing the three newest characters (Claire, Emily, Gabby). Their bios are pretty brief (and identical). Claire and Emily have been fleshed out a bit since they were introduced. Gabby, not so much, but I expect her turn is coming.
