I need input from my readers.
I'm currently drawing the eleventh installment of Megacomic (once I get started, I can't stop; if anyone wants to take over editing duties, be my guest) and I've realized that a series of panels featuring a large quantity of Mario characters are completely pointless and add nothing to the plot. Since they simply get in the way and delay the action (more importantly, the jokes included aren't funny), should I just cut those panels? It should be noted that I planned for them to be included as a means of raising the stakes, but the more that I think about it, the more I realize how unimportant they are. Thoughts?
