Well, if you read my whole comic, you'll see that Knuckles doesn't come around very often in my comic. But you do raise a point, that I've been devoting a lot of comics to a short distance in this zone. I'll see if I can speed things up a bit.
It won't be speeding up like that. By that, I mean I've got several hundred backgrounds from this zone to work with, and while I won't be using every one of them, it's a lot more to work with than building-block backgrounds, which I have to make myself and so run out of far sooner. I've gone through about 50 comics in this zone so far and yet haven't covered much territory, so for future comics I'll try to use multiple backgrounds in one comic where it wouldn't look out of place.
