Alright, so I pretty much disappeared for the entire summer. Three months between comics is a bit ridiculous by ANY standard. The good news is, I’ve got plenty more strips planned, and some minor semblance of free time again. I actually started work on this strip on Saturday night, but the fan died on my video card about halfway through the process, causing my PC to overheat and power down every 10 minutes or so, which severely hindered my productivity. I swapped out the whole video card with a spare earlier today – hopefully things are back on track now.
