OK true believers, What Elsewhere strips do you like the most? The everyday live stuff or the big adventure comics? Looking at old strips and am amazed at how good they were at doing nothing (But being funny at the same time). 

2 deviants said Keep trying do do a mix of adventure and regular life.
1 deviant said The everyday life stuff
No deviants said Big adventure comics
No deviants said Make it a time period piece. 1980's?
No deviants said Can it and start something new :P
