Dammit, the last week really sucked. I'll be burning the midnight oil this week, though - if I don't get new strips up every day this week you have my permission to come to the Pittsburgh Comicon and splatter me with ripe tomatoes.

Looks like I'm ever so slightly ahead in the "let's not get splattered by produce" challenge. I kinda like this strip, myself - I whipped the whole thing out from start to finish in about three hours. Whole thing's inked with a brush and some markers to spot blacks. And yes, I finally got a decent-looking Sinnot sunburst. Yes, today is a good day.
