also, didn't you say on an earlier page you were trying to keep this comic contemporary with regards to technology? naming a specific piece of it like a switch kind of locks it to a certain time period...because i don't see that thing still being used or talked about much 10-20 years from now, like the older gameboy handhelds

I debated this for a while because of that very issue, and asked a few friends about it. Ultimately the fun of it won out.

Otherwise I don't remember saying anything about keeping it contemporary or not. On the whole, it does rub me the wrong way, though. One of my novels is now locked in the mid 90s as a time period, but I wrote it "contemporary" at the time.

But in this case, as I said, I couldn't resist the Switch, having gotten one at launch. Plus it has a myriad of "ports" so it had been a good fit to have Kolchak appear on it as well. As it fades into history, it could also be that the pups are just playing with an old one.

Someone created a rotary dial cell phone, so it could be easily said that the pups are playing with some older tech that they found or which came around again.

Precisely. :)

Glad you like them. :) There's more of them to come at this concert and beyond. But as with any/all characters, it will bounce around with them.
