This was written under a fairly desperate deadline, at Origins Game Fair in Columbus. I was just trying to get a strip done, and I had brought two clips with me that were simple enough to keep in my mind at spare moments. I couldn’t think of a thing to write to either one as I drove up there. At the last possible hour before checkout of the hotel, I forced myself to sit and write a strip.
And yet, I like this one a lot. It never ceases to surprise and annoy me that the quality of a given strip has no correlation to the difficulty or desperation of the writing process.
