The second appearance of my friend Jaffit! There’s a place near where I live where you can jump in a giant warehouse-sized room where the floor is made of trampolines. It’s awesome. The first thing I did when my knee was confirmed for “exercisable” was go there on Jaffit’s insistence, where this conversation took place.
We used to do a lot of “ripped from the headlines” comics; nowadays it seems we’re doing a lot of “ripped from our own mouths” ones. That sounds more painful than it is.
Robert and I decided to change whose dialogue it was when writing; we agreed it was a much more “Robert” thing for either of those characters to say. It’s not the first time we’ve done that, either. Funny how that works sometimes.
It looks so wrong to draw Robert without glasses.
