InFrequently Asked Questions
Q: When does False Positive post comic updates?
A: 3 times a week, every Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.
Q: What is this webcomic rated? Is it safe for coworkers to read it over my shoulder at work? Should I permit my impressionable progeny to read this sort of pulp?
A: False Positive has not been “rated” by any authoritarian institution, but the language usually falls within PG-13 territory, while the visuals might depict varying degrees of comic book violence and gore. The comments are not rated and some comments could potentially contain salty language which more sensitive readers might find objectionable.
Q: When I click on the RSS/ Subscribe links, I get sent to a weird page full of code– what’s up with that?
A: Are you using Chrome to browse the interwebs? I bet you are. Chrome lacks an inherent RSS reader. It needs a plug-in, like this one: LINK If you aren’t using Chrome, you’re probably using some other browser that has trouble with RSS reading– Maybe you’re browsing on a smartphone or a tablet. You can try to go to your favorite homepage and add the RSS feed from there.
Q: Why short stories?
A: I’m just as much an advocate for long form story telling as I am for the shorter form. My heart holds a special place for genre anthologies. Horror, specifically, often works more successfully in short form. I get the warm fuzzies when thinking back on my discovery of the short stories of Poe, Lovecraft, Ellison, and Bradbury or my earliest viewings of Creepshow, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and so on. When scheming this project, I hoped short-stories might lend their pointed brevity to a webcomic delivery format. I do have larger stories I hope to share elsewhere.
Q: Will any of the short-stories/ chapters continue?
Q: Do you have a zombie-apocalypse-survival-plan in place and if so, what is it?
A: Yes, but I cannot disclose my strategy here.
