Here’s a tip to writers of comics: Wanna go easy on your artist? Script a bunch of head shots. Writing comics is often about balance. I can’t load up the detail and the backgrounds for multiple strips at a time or I’m gonna wear Marc out, so I’ve gotta also write stuff that it’s a bit easier to draw now and again. As we head into the big 500, this is especially important.

Personal Note: Today is Cami’s 8th birthday. For a kid who we were once told would probably not live to see 3, this makes me immensely happy.
