The forums will be a good place to have an extended discussion about the comic story and characters. But also it is a good area to meet other people who follow each comic, and hopefully have the artists chime in from time to time. Feel free to start topics, the forums are a bit sparse right now, I am trying to work on ways to get people to start using them more.
Shortly there will be a badge awarded for each group you join, that is still being worked on. Badges will be displayed in your profile, and in the comment section for each comic and in your forum posts.
