It all comes back again
I inadvertantly thought up the idea for this particular series of comics (this is part one of four) one time when I was trying to make a joke in a pestering email to John Allison. This is the true joy of writing a comic strip: looting your real life for comic material. Suddenly, your life becomes one giant research project.
Maybe I should do a three week series about Sam and Fuzzy going to Hawaii. I think I could stand to do a little research like that.
