You're in the middle of a storyline!
to go to the beginning
Ahoy there, readers. Today marks the first appearance of.....[insert robot name here]. That's right, I don't have a name for it yet, which means I can't do the next strip. Any more suggestions can be left in The Forum. I was thinking of something Spanish, but if you've got any better suggestions, fire away. Also, if you would like the robot as a permanent character, or just a cameo thing, tell me as well. I recently got my hands on a copy of Photoshop 6, and am currently teaching myself how to use it.

Breasts. Yep. I had forgotten to change Nat's torso to show her breasts in a proper 3/4 view. Up until now that is. It's funny how you always miss the little things on a conscious level, but on a subconscious level, you know you've forgotten something. Like how I had always forgotten to give Duke a chin and cheekbone. Well....I think I've gotten most things right now.
Good idea, Sancho's first appearance! But no, wrong character
