One reason to do it in a comic, actually, is because you'd be suprised how many people don't read the rants or anything other than the comic. And it was a natural, laid back comic to do (i spent an hour doing the drawings :)
I decided to not fill up the missing days with DPDs, SGDs and stuff because at this point in the story i dont want this huge gap in the middle for people going back and re-reading things.
Oh, and regarding Dom... i won't be here to, er, stop dom from doing anything, like, say, a SGD, or some other horror... so, we'll see :P
