In response to reader comments, I’ve now changed the name of the Stalker and the Stalker’s Cat to the Reporter and the Reporter’s Cat (respectively!). People understandably found the lighthearted use of a word that represents a serious and harmful crime to be quite upsetting, and that’s the last thing I want! A character name that tickled me several years ago is not worth that.
If you find any comics or blurb-references to the Stalker or the Stalker’s Cat, please feel free to let me know so I can update it. I think I’ve got all of them but it’s hard to be 100% sure.
Thanks to those of you who brought it up. I’m painfully aware that for everyone who’s strong enough to speak up, there are several who aren’t – and if you hadn’t said anything, I wouldn’t have thought to fix it. I’m sorry it took so long, it was a big job to edit all the comics and I am a person who likes to do things all in one go!
