Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #3545 - Lifelong Learning

STW was originally designed with the intent to break/extend the fourth wall, so that all of you reading the comic were effectively sitting in the class being taught. (The original name of the comic was going to be "101", actually, but that name was taken on Wordpress when the site originally launched there.) And any good educator knows the importance of lifelong learning, not just whatever knowledge you gain in that particular course.

I hope STW's impact, long-term, was that you, any of you, were inspired in some way to take your own initiative and learn further, about something, about anything. In terms of artistic style or content, maybe something of that will matter or persist. But any impact on your lifelong learning or your passion for learning, and that passion/learning that you can share with others, will matter far greater than anything STW can have provided in its limited form. So learn. Please. And never stop learning.

THE END OF STW: STW ends June 1st, this Friday, only 3 more comics to go. (If STW was a pizza, we'd be licking the empty box.) You have 3 days to get the one and only STW book! There'll be an audiobook version, an appendix with a soundtrack listing for the entire book, and a thank-you-note for all physical copies! Thank you so much for your readership and your support!
