The Single Panel vs Multi-Panel Debate

I received a note from a long time reader who felt that he was enjoying the PC Weenies less as a multi-panel comic than when it was a single panel comic. It was sad to see him go, because invariably when a cartoonist loses a reader for good, it makes the artist question his own abilities.
While I enjoyed the heck out of my 8 year run as a single panel comic, itâ€™s something I donâ€™t want to revisit on a regular basis. Two years ago, at this time, I was getting incredibly burnt out with single panel comics. I had contemplated throwing in the towel.
Switching to multi-panel comics gave me some new found energy and got me excited about making comics again. Does that mean youâ€™ll *never* see another new single panel PC Weenies comic? Nope. If the idea merits a single panel toon, then it will be a single panel â€˜toon. Otherwise, Iâ€™m personally enjoying the extra room I have with the multi-panel format.
