800 A New Day

Eight hundred comics in the books. Who would have thought? And now we're off to the final third of the Road Trip story. Unfortunately, next week will be dark. I ain't taking a break or a vacation or anything. I'm just very behind. I just finished today's episode just last night. I still have a ton of writing to do for the last part of the road trip, I haven't even started drawing the next comic yet, and I still got to get out the next Midnight Edition (which will be out sometime next week).  So I figured this break between the mini chapters  would be the best time to catch up with everything. Believe me, next week will not be a break for me. Also, as if you couldn't guess, their destination of Las Vegas may prove to be the most challenging 'art-wise' I have ever done on this comic. I'm expecting very intensely detailed illustrations to get the right flavor of the destination. It should be both fun and challenging drawing the Vegas strip, the casinos, the hotels, the people... Wait a second. What have I gotten myself into? See ya in a week!

  1. Oh, so now they’re going to Lost Wages? I hope they don’t lose their shirts! 😉

      1. Gorbi1985, thanks! 🙂

        1. You´re Welcome. 🙂

  2. Okay, now that is a departure from realism . . . the hat staying on the baby!

    1. Being a nurse and having spent a little time in Birth and Delivery, I can say if you know how to swaddle them nice and tight that hat will stay…for a bit.

      1. Living in a household that has half as many children as India, i have had plenty of experience with putting those stupid hats back on sleeping, motionless babies over and over again!

  3. Excellent place for a pause. Have a good break, Eric — looking forward to the next adventure!

    1. Hah! No break for me. I’ll be working on all aspects of the comic all next week. 😉

  4. HA! Talk about a detour, I wasn’t expecting this reveal. Very clever, Mr. Clements, very clever indeed. 😉

    Time for the Vegas hustle, or will it end up being a trip for Beth and Emrys to wonderland, ala the classic 1959 song from The Flamingos, “I Only Have Eyes For You”?

    Place your bets, folks! 😀

    1. Per wikipedia (and somewhere in Deep Storage™ I have it on wax dated in the late 1930s): “I Only Have Eyes For You”, 1934, Harry Warren and Al Durbin., written for the 1934 film “Dames”. Many have covered it, including the Flaminghi.

  5. … ok, I wasn’t expecting a trip to Vegas. This caught me off guard more than Geraldine’s change of heart.
