For those wondering, Dr. Rocket’s look here in One Year Later is based on Dr. No’s from the first James Bond film, “Dr. No.” What he’s wearing is called a nehru jacket.

Apologies for my lack of engagement last week. You know those weeks you have that are just kind of awful and don’t leave you with much energy to do your normal stuff? Yeah, I had one of those weeks. I expect to be back in fighting shape this week. I’ll probably double back today and see if there are any comments that need to be addressed from last week’s strip.

Wednesday: We check in with Zurida and Dark Maiden one year later. Featuring an unexpected cameo… if you can spot it!
