Next page is Saturday the 2nd of March.

Next story page is Monday the 4th of March.

Story pages will now be on Mondays for the foreseeable future.

As Scott will be going on a boat ride of his own very soon, Exiern is going to be moving to Mondays for the foreseeable future starting from March the 4th. In the interim, please enjoy the start of this new feature for 2019 that will appear periodically where we acknowledge the historically top contributing nations to the Exiern audience on or around days of national significance during the course of this year starting with Australia at number five and the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

Which I do admit is just a bit Sydney-centric (it’s obviously in the name, for starters) and hence a bit of an odd one out compared to the others for this feature. Just happened to be the way it unfolded when it was put together, I guess and it’s not like it’s unknown to the nation as a whole and not thematically significant to the content of this webcomic in some ways at least.

The follow up for this page on Saturday the 2nd of March, the day of the actual parade and probably the best known part to many of an event that actually runs over several weeks. We hope to see you then!

As it happens, Project Wonderful had Australia consistently at number four and some of the metrics from Google Analytics also do as well but not all of them, so I had to make an adjudication between it and the closest nation in all the respective categories. However, the relative weighting of the categories in question as I saw it had me putting Australia as number five even though I’m an Australian myself. So come on Australia, let’s get it together going forward!
