I’ve been avoiding doing this out of principle for months, because it feels cheap, but I’ve finally added a superfluous second image file underneath the comic so that it actually loads the larger version of the comic in the Tumblr feed rather than a tiny thumbnail.
As much as I love Tumblr as a format in general, it boggles my mind that they punish you for posting only 1 image by turning it into a thumbnail, yet when you post more than one it allows the image to fill the whole frame. I hate to junk up their site with useless image files, but as a comic writer it’s a huge disadvantage when readers have to take the extra step to actually click on my comic to read it, instead of just scrolling past to the next thing that they don’t have to enlarge.
Head over to Dumm Comics to read my latest RAD RAZ comic before it hits the tumblrz! It’s Halloween themed! Maybe even scroll down underneath the comic and click the “like” button if you like it!
