Diwali was a few days ago (Saturday 10/17 to be exact) so this is a little late, but we did a comic about the Japanese New Year a little while ago and I figured this could be a similar sort of thing! Sorry that it's a wall of text - these things happen sometimes. Diwali actually gets celebrated over the course of several days in India, and it's loud and festive and a lot of fun. And the food! That's my favorite part.
Read the alt text, hahahaha. Oh Yuko.
Our word game escalated ... Yuko and I both grew up devouring anything we could read about prehistory, so our vocabularies on that point are pretty good (although Yuko is the undisputed champ). Here's a breakdown of the animals we're actually referring to, for your convenience (from beginning to end):
It should be noted: our days are hardly ever this interesting. We just lucked out on having an especially adventure-y day on Tuesday. Thank you again to Dave and Raina for meeting us at Nickelodeon, showing us around and overall being friendly and lovely people. For those of you don't know, Dave Roman is one of the editors of Nickelodeon Magazine, which is shutting down at the end of the year, after nearly 20 years of publication. It's a sad story, a lot of cartoonists got
I know I mentioned this in the blog comments, but I'll say it again: today is Ananth's birthday! Happy birthday, Ananth! 8D
Two of my favorite people in the world, Kyle and Jenn, got married in South Carolina a few years back, back around the time Yuko and I started dating ... so this chronicles something a little older. It's weird because I filled out the forms digitally in MD -- so someone mispelled a printed name. Go figure! I can say this: Yuko has gotten plenty of mileage out of it.
It's been a year and a hundred comics! H-HOW DID THIS HAPPEN
Thank you everyone for sticking around. We hope you've been enjoying your stay. :D
Yuko wore a skirt the first day of SPX, which as we have previously established is mighty unusual! It was mega cute, though - despite all of the exclamations, she got plenty of compliments. And despite that huge grin she drew me with in the first panel, it wasn't my idea for her to wear it! Totally self-motivated. She also got a new haircut which she decided she hates but really it is pretty cute.
Haaahahaha, ohhh Mika. You adorable little cat jerk!
Yuko and I will be wandering around SPX this weekend, saying hi to folks. We'll be there with George, most likely.
Oh, we got mentioned in the comics section on Reddit! Thank you to whoever reddited that.
Hey guys! We're a little later than we expected, but Yuko's been working into the AM to get this thing done, so here it is. Please give her a thank you! She's been working literally all day. Hope you enjoyed this little short! We'll be doing more, but we'll be planning them out more carefully in the future.
Yuko and I have been talking, and chances are this isn't the last you've seen of Cecilia and Death ... we'll probably see them again from time to time.
I, uh, also came up with some alternate takes on this story,
