One advantage webcomics have over their print brethren lies with their impermanence. Errors can be easily repaired, plot holes plugged, and weak storytelling shored up either through reboots of the entire comic, or of additional pages to help expand the story. A case in point is the science fiction webcomic Terra; after a number of fans complained about the actions of two antagonists felt rushed and incomplete, cartoonist and co-writer Holly Laing inserted a page that helped build up to (and slightly modifying) the scene in question. In addition, Laing is joining a growing number of cartoonists of rewriting their comics’ beginning, while working on a buffer to help eliminate missed updates (though at the expense of a summer-long break in regular updates).
