Erfworld is a fair great web comic. I really enjoyed Book 1.
But after book 1 it suffered repeated misfortune with the artists. For various reasons the artists were unable to produce comics at regular intervals. This lead to the other author to publish "Text-Updates". Which don't have art, or only have single panel of art and then half a page or more of text.
It has been a while since I read any Erfworld and i have been thinking about trying to get up to date. I enjoy the panel comic much more than the text. But if i only read the panel comics, would I miss out on plot crucial information? Or is the stuff in the text updates only background stuff?
