You might be looking at the credits on this comic strip and wondering to yourself "why is the artist listed first?" There are a few reasons for that. The first answer is that Nils is our guest, and I think that means his name should come first. The second is because Nils told me what kind of story he wanted to tell, including certain plot points, and that makes us co-plotters. The third is because I think artists should be listed first in comics credits. Not to diminish the contribution of writers, but artists -- specifically pencilers -- have the most labor intensive job in comics assembly. In a perfect world, I think all comics should be credited like Armor Wars II where John Romita, Jr.'s name sat above John Byrne. But that's just me.
