The tenth and final part to Olav vs. the News! It goes without saying that when I started this storyline I didn’t intend for it to take sixth months to tell, but the end result is still the same. I originally though of having Olav go all pro-wrestler on a news talk show when I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, “Common Sense with Dan Carlin.” In it, Dan Carlin talks about his take on news and current events- something I’m normally not that interested in, but he makes it engaging with his unique perspective on things. In an episode late last year, Dan compared pundit shows like the O’Reilly Factor to UFC shows, where the appeal isn’t to be informed, but rather to see the host beat down on his guest in spoken Gladiatorial combat (I’m paraphrasing a lot, but that’s the general idea). Anyway, it seemed like news shows would fit in pretty well with professional wrestlers, and that’s how this all came about! Thanks for reading!

Olav has returned! And this time I’m super serious about it, dammit! After several attempts and much time spent questioning how exactly I want to handle Olav, I think I’ve found a way to do it. My new solution is to update Over Like Olav weekly, on weekends (either Saturday or Sunday, whenever I get it done). So one update a week, but it’s going to be a larger comic, kind of like a Sunday strip from newspapers. Also, to make it easier to see if Over Like Olav has really updated, I added a widget on the main Botched Spot page to show the latest post. It’s important to me to update it regularly (which eliminated my first attempt at updating “Over Like Olav” whenever I felt like it) but also to not drive myself crazy with updates (which eliminated my brief attempt to update on Tuesdays and Thursdays along with my normal M-W-F Botched Spot comics).
I know that this is the umpteenth time that I’ve tried to rework how I want to handle Olav, but I feel really good about it this time. And to show I’m serious about it I’ve already built a buffer up for the first storyline. So anyway, I hope you enjoy it, and thanks for reading!
