20100130 (2) – Rewritten, with some miniscule artwork tweaks. Funny thing about this page – the original page .psd has merged type. Meaning unlike most of the other pages, the new dialogue has the added benefit of being editable. Huzzah.

20101225 – Original page metadata:

See what I was saying about foreshadowing? Yeah. It only took you a few minutes to get here, but it was years for me.


2008.04.19 – Beyond moving things around a bit so they fit the new aspect ratio, no major changes from the previous version.

Strip 096, 20070817

Not a very accurate depiction of Matt (surprised the linked material still exists!), but I don’t think he’ll mind. Props to Tara for correcting me on the hair – he’s got the Robert Smith Exploding Head thing going on in all of the strip layouts.

Note that the people that make these kinds of comments typically have all of the dancing ability of a quadriplegic sloth.

00:28 <@solios> hah.
00:28 <@solios> fun fact: those were supposed to be completely random people on the dance floor. But it turned out that only the first one is.

Strip 098, 20070821

If I hold with my current production pace, then this will hit on the 21rst… and it does, with strips canned up to Friday already.

Man, August is ticking by way too fast.

Strip 099, 20070822

Man, just thinking about Laga/Upstage vodka gives me a hangover.

Truly, some vile shit.
