Sponsored Comic: Stack 'Em High

Polyglots language learners collect new languages like candy

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wednesday surprise!

So this is something new I'm trying out. To be completely honest with you, I'm still a bit conflicted about it. I was approached by Lingoda to create a comic that they would sponsor, but it's really important to me that you, the readers, don't just get a bunch of advertising in your feed. You're here for comics, not ads! That's why this site has been conspicuously ad-free for a long time. 

However, I figured that a sponsored comic would be acceptable if: 1) the advertising wasn't too in-your-face, 2) it was still a genuine Itchy Feet comic in every other way, and 3) it didn't replace the regular Sunday comics.

What are your thoughts? Is this just more delicious Itchy Feet content for you to enjoy, or shameful exploitation of the bean-shaped comic arts? I am really interested to hear what you think.
