So I know you guys have been hurting for more comics lately. Trust me, I understand. I have the jones too. Sometimes I get it so bad that I just start scratching myself until a doctor gives me a sedative and binds my hands with leather straps to the bed which FYI could use a change of sheets. |
And maybe another pillow.
But some famous person probably once said that the greatest show of character is perserverence. I have no proof that anyone has ever said this but I naturally assume that someone has. It sounds like the kind of thing that someone important would have once said.
It's through your hardship and suffering that the true fruit of life will be yours. After painful months of starvation and hopelessness, a bounty will be bequeathed unto you that is so glorious that to gaze upon it is to understand true happiness. And then after that, the rest of your life will lose all meaning and taste, like a stick of gum that you've been chewing too long. Sometimes you wrap it up and set it aside, hoping that it will regain some of it's flavor. But it won't. That stick of gum will sit in that napkin and haunt you for eternity. That used up wad of rubber will create an emptiness in your life so boundless that not even one out of five dentists would recommend it to you.
But I digress. We're about half way through our school semester and we're busy as beavers. But don't worry. Comics are coming. A payload of them even maybe. Elaine bought me an extra fancy notebook for Valentine's Day so my resolve to write comics for you beautiful people has never been stronger. Also, we may have a proper website in the near future. With an archive, and a forum, and three chocolate elephants!
So lift your head high and waft in the smell of things to come. To the untrained nose it smells like freshly made waffles, but let me assure you, that is the glorious stench of the promise of a new day.
