Hi! Well, that was an unexpected hiatus. After years of cranking out these strips once or twice a week, with never more than a two-week wait at most between strips, I took a buncha time off just then. Sorry. A surprising number of things have happened in the past few weeks, and a bunch of balls got dropped, including this one.
Anyway, this strip here is one that I could never really get to a punchline. I tried one where they were selling magazines, but it felt forced. So I decided to rely pretty much fully on the buildup of the pointless menacing conspiracyspeak. The fact that I only have three panels is both a blessing and a curse...I easily could have stretched this one entirely too long, and it could be argued that it's already too long.
BONUS DIALOG I HAD TO CUT:
GUY 1: "This briefcase?"
GUY 2: "Maybe you should worry about what's in your own briefcase." UNSEEN PERSON: "I didn't mention a briefcase, and I'm not carrying a briefcase." GUY 2: "And you're saying I did?"
GUY 1:"And you're saying I am?"
Anyway, let's see if I can get back into the swing of this. Thanks for sticking around.
