When you do a collaboration that’s a big project like this, there’s a lot of planning involved. Monty and I had actual, scheduled meetings before we launched this thing where we had discussions, took notes, and talked about the things we wanted to do and didn’t want to do.

For instance, I proposed that we not take whole pages to tell a joke, even if the joke was really funny. It’s a perfectly fine thing to do. Great comics like Paranatural do it all the time! But, I wanted us to have a moderately brisk pace, so I put my foot down on this one.
