Hey everyone! Hope you're enjoying the week :D

June and I are celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. It's had its ups and its downs, but it's been a good ride overall.

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!

I wanted to say that this is one where I am happy about the writing. Normally I make a big fuss when I'm not happy about it, so I thought I'd mention that this is one I was happy with. It was also compliments of the Katie and Beth getting their stuff sorted out in one strip instead of two, so I'm grateful to them for that. :)

My only complaints with my work on this one is that I'm not sure if I should have made the third panel's bubble an 'innie', and I'm wondering if I should have put the last bubble in the bottom right of the screen so that you read the ZOOOOM! before you see Muchacho Guard backpedalling... But that's just me trying to figure out the intricacies of the medium...

well happy anniversary to you two. You kids have fun now, lots and lots of fun.... Bow chika bow wow. But seriously, you have a great day, and go out for a romantic dinner.

Oh and James: thanks for the advice. I know i can be super picky about particulars, the main problem is too much background, i want the opening to be ambiguous, but still within reason, I'm kinda bitchy about it because of that, but i can't give any more away. Otherwise it's less fun.

10 years!
My wife and I are due for 9 real soon here.

Reference the strip, The Phantom striking righteous terror into the PSO's just shows how tough he is!

@MatthewJA - Thank you :D

@Frosty - Much appreciated :D

@model S - We may have been married for 10 years, but we don't wait for anniversaries to have fun ;)

My other suggestion is that the information you provide to the artist should be reflective of how picky you intend to be... If you are going to say "I want it exactly this way", the information that you provide to the artist should be meticulous in the detail you provide.

Obviously, June could point out that I don't always follow this advice, but it's still good advice :) And I try to roll with it when something isn't exactly what I envisioned.

@svzurich - Thank you! I'm certainly hoping so :D

@Muchacho NL - I'm glad you liked it :D I'm not sure how much Muchacho Guard is going to be involved with any future strips, so it was a good one to go out on ;)

@T.Gatto - That's awesome! We've seen some marriages crash and burn in a relatively short period of time, so it's always nice to see the enduring ones...

And yeah, they bolted pretty good when the Phantom showed up :D

@EnterTheNameHere - Thank you so much :D

thanks for the help. i guess i could stand to chill my shit. but this first page is really important to me to be the way it is in my head.

Then you have to be able to write / draw (in stickmen, even) as much detail as possible to get across what you're looking for. The more dialogue, the better!

I think we've got a good dialog going now, thanks James! We are working together alot better now.

I just noticed. Next update on my birthday! Woo!

@model S - Awesome on both counts! I'm looking forward to seeing what you two come up with!
