Blogger Blurs the Strip Format

Here's one of my favorite strips (#16 from sometime in July).  I have been posting them as four individual panels requiring viewers to click in and out of each one to read the whole strip.  After a recommendation from a follower, I spent a few days converting all 58 strips thus far into single photos like this.

Alas, Blogger seems to want to weaken the resolution.  When I read them in paint or on my Windows picture viewer, they are clear and sharp.  When I load them on Blogger, this is what they look like.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Why I'm Not Afraid to Draw

As THE CHINESE FIRE DRILL nears its 50th strip, I'm hearing the same comment from more people: "Aren't you worried?" or "What are you going to do if you 'get in trouble' for this?"  I suppose, when I step away from myself and try to look at this from everyone else's perspective, the point is somewhat obvious.  However, from my perspective, this seems like a horrendously counter-productive question.  Therefore, let me state now and unequivocally:
1. I am not afraid.
2. Nothing's going to happen, anyway.
