Today's strip was a surprise birthday gift from John Allison
! Johnny's work was a tremendous formative influence on my own so it is a delight to see his take on my characters.
Sorry for breaking up the flow of the current storyline, but I've got a million irons in the fire (finishing Book 2, new shirt and other merchandise designs, etc) and need a day off to get my brain back in order. I want to do the next couple weeks of strips RIGHT, which means taking care of this other stuff first. Regular strips resume Monday!
