To anyone who may be visiting the comic for the first time– or for the first time in a long time– and would like to know what the heck is going on here, may I suggest the synopsis on the New Readers page? Or, if you’re feeling brave, you could try Fusella’s (Extremely Opinionated) “Story So Far”.

The scenes on the wall screens were a bit of an experiment: I drew them all on a separate piece of paper (mainly so I could be lazy and cut-n-paste in the second panel) and then inked it with a crowquill dip pen, instead of the usual brush and Rapidograph pen (or Micron felt-tip) combo. I like the idea of using a crowquill, but I’m still a bit nervous about using them on the page. This method made a good compromise. But between the challenging perspective and the wee little scenes of ruin, that first panel was almost the death of me. :-P

Did you get a chance to pop by on Valentine’s Day? If you missed it, you can see the little pin-up I made for the occasion.

Apologies if you were here earlier and this wasn’t posted yet. We were out late for Family Day and forgot to pre-post this when we got home.
