I'm really sorry for all the "controversy" the change to the comics may have caused. I was terribly excited about it, and I honestly thought you guy would like it, too. I should have done another poll or something to get opinions beforehand.
But I'm going to be frank, which doesn't happen too often:
Despite the generally negative response to the change, I am not changing it. I've changed the size and color of the font to make it easier to read, because I love you, but I love the style and it's not going. I've been wanting to change it for a while, and it's finally reached the point where I'm content with the look. I have a pathological need to please everyone, and Lord knows I can't do that, so I'm going to do the next best thing, and make these for myself.
If it still hurts your eyes, I'm so sorry. We've all got eye strain from looking at our computers all day :P
