A number of folks have expressed concern to me that Ship in a Bottle was originally “sold” as a “whimsical, episodic sitcom” style comic, but now it has taken a decidedly long-form story format. Worry not, mah chiddlins. What ended up happening was that I had too many ideas at once back at inception in 2008-2009 and decided that I was going to do a 6-chapter opening arc. Now, at 1x a week, that means we’ll finish Chapter 6 sometime either at the end of this year or early next. After that, you will see far less ongoing story and each episode will be self-contained, either exploring the goofy relationship between Alan and Ship, or making light of the world(s) they inhabit.
