I started doing the bonus comic weeks to make up for the strips I missed while in the hospital last October. One of my primary goals when I set out to do TOACM was to get 104 strips out (2/week) in the span of a solid year (52 weeks). Unfortunately, life threw me a curve ball and I missed two straight weeks of comics due to illness. To make up for it I began adding in a bonus comic during a week once per month (Dec 2010 & Jan-March 2011) to make up the difference. Whew! Someday, I'd love to be able to take TOACM to 3/week on a regular basis...someday...until then we'll be back to 2/week for the foreseeable future.
