So, ed next week, treat with myself and Benjamin Birdie at New York Comic-Con, there will be no new strip. Nor will there be one the week after, as B draws the strip on Sunday evenings and he’ll be far too knackered from the event. So you (and Joe, who is busy doing some other stuff anyway) get a 14-day reprieve. Use it wisely, use it well.
PS> This means that you need to go and tell your friends about this arc. We think it’s pretty good!
