A couple of years ago, I realized I’d continued to age and these characters of mine had not, they were perpetually in their early 20’s, and I…wasn’t. So I had the idea to age them a bit and see where they were in life, because while the internet is lousy with misfit 20-somethings in webcomics, there weren’t many that I could think of that featured characters that were more like me now: someone living their 30’s somewhat nontraditionally, without interest in being parents or anything. What happens to goths and punks and misfits when they age?
I actually did something like 6 or 7 strips in 2016 (I think), but I just wasn’t ready to commit to doing a regular strip again and kind of fell off. But when I was trying to brainstorm ideas to start doing it again, I realized I REALLY liked some of those, and redrew the first one from scratch using the same dialogue. This is that strip, and I still really like it!
So I hope that this comic actually has a little to say. Not much, maybe, but more than just another “hipster slice of life” comic in a sea of them. If nothing else, it gives me an excuse to keep drawing as a hobby. Thanks for reading, and check back on Wednesdays for new content!
