Jeez, so many (okay, just two) callbacks in this strip. As my archive grows ever larger and more intimidating I'm gonna have to watch out and make sure new strips don't devolve entirely into references to things that happened hundreds of strips ago.
Also you will be pleased to know that in a fit of holiday cheer I have ordered my legal team to allow David Willis' various websites
to continue operating even as I pursue legal action against him for his heinous, impertinent theft of my characters
. I expect to literally own him by the end of the year, but I figure I might as well allow him the small mercy of pretending he still controls his own fate.
(Before you email me THAT LAST PARAGRAPH WAS A JOKE. Some of you people have no grasp of the concept of sarcasm.)
One last thing: this coming weekend I will be in Austin, TX for WEBCOMICS RAMPAGE
! I've never been to Austin before, I hope some of you will show up and say hi. That would be rad.
See you tomorrow!
