I have to admit that some of the art in this one is atrocious. I had scripted out the following strips in which Curt visits Jess into probably twice as many, but then I realized it was going on for a really long time. Since it's only once a week, I'd have, like, 2 months worth and I was already growing bored and itching to move on to newer ideas. My solution? Mash strips together into Frankensteinian abominations that have no hint of proper flow or timing! And redraws! Endless panel redraws that look rushed and repurposed because they were! Brilliant! Now to sit back and admire my own incredible glory.

Despite that, however, I think there is some good stuff coming up. Jess is a personal favorite character of mine, and I really enjoy playing her off of Curt. It's nice to do a character that's not endlessly sarcastic and hateful.

The "vomit and attempted rape" line was based on a nightmarish overnight busride I took in college during which we had to stop to clean vomit, and then stop again so the the police could take some guy who was harassing a girl off the bus. So...it's an inside joke to myself, because maybe 3 other people know the story, but hey, everyone knows long busrides are potentially creepy, right? So that's broad enough? Yeah...

Hey, look...more idea sketches! Naomi with bigass...glasses and Curt with long, sexy hair! What terrible ideas!

That's all I got this week.
