827 Last Minute Plans

Speaking of  last minute plans, It looks like I’ll be traveling to California for the next two weeks to see friends and family that I haven’t seen in almost five years. I usually take a week off or so in the summer but this time there’s no way of getting out of two weeks. What that means for the comic is a slight hiatus. I know. I'm sorry. I’m also anxious to finish the road trip storyline so I hate the pause as much as everyone else.  I hope you’ll forgive me for going dark for the next two weeks, but it's been over five years since I've seen friends and family. -Well, ‘going dark’ is not exactly true. I do have a very nice surprise come next Monday in the form of a guest post which I think turned out amazing. Written by myself and illustrated by published humor artist extraordinaire, Andy MacPhee in a hilarious attempt to catch up everyone new to the comic with the saga of Emrys and Beth. I think you’ll enjoy it. As for the Kickstarter going on, I’ll be in constant contact while I’m away and posting updates. (I’ll probably be doing the same here, too). It seems my ambitions for a large print run may need to be scaled back a bit. It was a nice way to get a great per book price but if the Kickstarter doesn’t meet its goal, I’ll try again with a smaller print run. One way or another I’ll get it printed. Still, it’s thirty percent funded and I still have twenty days to go so…it’s still quite possible. So come back Monday for the special guest post and I’ll have a new comic up July 5th with about twenty more comics to go to the end of the storyline.

  1. So, Beth has her date. Emrys will go with team for strippers. Jojo and Jeff can use Emrys’ reservation. Sounds like plan.

    And Eric, enjoy your stay at your relatives and friend. Met my bro yesterday, because I stayed day reset close to his city. Haven’t seen him almost a year. So at least I can understand.

  2. I like Gorbi’s idea, after all, who isn’t on the JoJo and Jeff bandwagon, but somehow I don’t think Emrys would like it too much. 😉

    Hope you have a great trip, Eric! You need some downtime once in awhile too, so take some time to relax and let your inner Mateo sooth your jangled nerves. 😀

    1. P.S. I think JoJo looks really cute in the second to last panel, I think it’s her happy/excited expression and her hair. She’s always in the background, but she’s giving Beth a run for her money as my favorite gal in the cast. 🙂

    2. I never said Emrys is supposed to like that idea 😀 But when I take in mind that he might be turned down by Beth or he might see Beth going out with Rob, I would not be surprised that he would go to release some steam with team. And hence let his reservation for Jojo with Jeff. After all, to see Jeff in higher class restaurant can be really funny 🙂

  3. I think Jojo has a piece of spinach between her teeth, I mean on her chin, in the last panel 🙂

    Have a fun trip!

  4. I think Joanna and Jeff are becoming a couple. Have fun Eric, stay hydrated.

  5. [meta] Idunno ’bout da rest of yinz, but I am a native Californian, and welcome Eric to this fair state.

    1. Thank you. I grew up in Thousand Oaks and lived in Long Beach for a long time. It’s nice to come back.

  6. You deserve some time for yourself and your family. I used to live in various places in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. Enjoy the break!

  7. You’re going to Cali and I’m out here in the limp dick of America. What timing I have!

  8. Although I live on the Right Coast, I was born in California and care about what happens there. BTW, I hope Jeff finally goes to Taco Bell and gets heartburn. I mean alcohol doesn’t exactly soothe the stomach. 😉
