Poor Mike.  Life’s such a mystery to him, in some ways.  But then again, it’s all so new to him.

So, here we are, all back in one piece.  Thanks, everyone, for being so patient, this summer.  It’s been a lot of work, keeping a roof over my head, not to speak of working on this comic.  So many great comics fall victim to issues like that, or simply to fatigue and boredom on the part of the artist.  Personally, my problem is tied up with the fact that, when I get home a the end of the day, all the things I’ve wanted to do during the day have been forgotten, and all the great ideas I’ve had seem silly, boring, or insurmountably complicated.  It’s the nature of working in a creative field, I suppose, the ups and downs.  And often, it’s more than just the typical highs and lows, and is actually just such a huge swing in temperament that it’s all I can do to drag myself into bed at the end of the day.

At any rate, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and that was certainly the case with the comic – it felt great to draw again this weekend, and I’m glad to be back!  So until next week, folks, all the best to everyone!

By the way – almost forgot!  Happy Canada Day!
