This was posted a little late, but the weekend was really busy, with a couple days of outside work to get some cash, followed by a day at the zoo with the family. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you've seen the picture of me feeding a giraffe. A lot of people were scared of the giraffes, but I had zero fear.

Maybe having a Great Dane prepared me for having a large headed animal eating from my hand.

This strip and next week's strip was not planned to be included, just because I wanted to end it by December 31.  However, I have a very specific ending in the works which first got suggested to me back in April and sometime in September, got revised a little bit by my wife.

The next strip is gonna be one of those mega-panels, just because I want to establish the courtroom as a location. After that, we have Ione's testimony and that leads us into the conclusion of our story.

By the way, I've been reading the Jaime Hernandez art book "Secret of Life and Death" and if you haven't looked at this, then do so. Also, be warned that if you click the "be a fan on Facebook" link on the right, then you get to see these strips as soon as they're done, scanned and pre-dated. I also plan to start sharing some special stuff over there soon.

Can you spot Elton's "01"?

The end is in sight.

I realize I promised the storyline would end by December 31 and then completely stopped. Christmas came and then the job search got in the way, a gallery proposal happened, I started writing a column for's Charlotte site,  and somewhere along the way I realized that the strip I had planned for next was too much of a jump in the story. So, with no set end date to the story, I'm currently working on the next strip. The idea came to me when working on sketchbook stuff during last week's Sketch Charlotte meeting. I hope to get it it done quickly, but as always, quality is first.

Shopping for comic books in Charlotte isn’t difficult.

Where do you go when you need a weekly fix for comics? Where do you go if you also want some sweet comics swag? Charlotte has the advantage of having several comic shops, each of them with their area of speciality. Here’s a brief overview.

I've started writing comics for's Charlotte site. I'm out to do two articles a week, focusing on local aspects of comics.  There will be a link over on the right to go directly, so please subscribe to the feed and check back there regularly.
