The linework and color were done in a different program than I'm used to so everything SHOULD look pretty different. Glad you liked it.

I've often said, "My dream is to JUST drawing comics for a living and having everything else taken care of for me." But the closer I've gotten to that "dream" (having merch fulfillment companies and other people handling my convention appearances) to more control I have to give up. The more control I give up, the less happy I am with how things turn out in the end.

Eventually you just run out of Internet.

I understand your sentiments and appreciate your continued interest in my work over the years. I would like to point out that my attitude towards "Internet Rudeness" has always been the same and always been met with the same level of hostility. Maybe I've just had two or three of these types of rude assholes in the last month, so it has seemed like my vitriol has stepped up. I'd suggest that my documented comment history of dealing with this type of "fan" will show that I've always had zero tolerance for this type of behavior.

As an aside, I've never considered the comments of my website to be a forum for criticism of my work. If someone has a problem with me, it's more appropriate to handle it privately via email. Airing grievances in public means the griever WANTS an audience and that's rarely a recipe for a cordial discussion. Rather, it's a performance that only one party has rehearsed for.

All 3 are possibilities.

I believe Jay knows who actually killed Hae and he was threatened by that person to implicate Adnan and himself. Otherwise I can't figure out why he'd admit to helping to burry a body. I also don't think Adnan is being 100% honest.

None of this matters, however, since the state obviously didn't have enough concrete evidence to put Adnan away for the rest of his life.

Oh, the TV is on during the second "writing" session.

There's no right answer, but more often than not the writing is quicker just because of the mechanics involved. Writing out an idea can take seconds, minutes or hours. Drawing an entire comic is going to take as long as that takes regardless of how inspired you are.

This particular comic I wrote on the fly. I made an outline of what each panel would be, drew them over about 4 days, then as I was placing them all how I wanted them and piecing the whole thing together, I decided to write some more interesting words than, "Reply to emails."

I also find it depends on the artist. Some can draw entire 5 panel comics in under an hour but struggle with dialog. I'm pretty comfortable with creating funny turns of phrase, so I think the writing comes to be more easily.
