Re: Is there any way to bring back the light-heartedness?

My favourite characters in the comic are Criminy and Fuchsia. I also really like the Criminy and Fuchsia characters and storyline, but I feel there isn't any point extending the plot line unless there is a really good character progression / development to describe.
