If this comic looks familiar, you're not crazy - it's remarkably similar to one we did a while ago. In the same way that I can't deal with coffee, Yuko can't deal with any of the super sweet drinks that I tend to favor ... most recently the Starbucks green tea frappucino. One new development since that last strip is that I started drinking tea - a lot of it! I got pretty sick the past couple of months, and so tea has become a staple, especially during the colder months.

This is a True Story, and not super relatable unless you ink with steel nibs! They give Yuko wrist cramps and generally seem like a pain in the ass to use (although I think she is using particularly bad ones) ... but it doesn't matter, because sitting on her desk now is an envelope from a brush company in Britain! I'm excited to see how Johnny Wander looks once she cracks those brushes open - they came on high recommendation from some talented folks (I, uh, can't remember who just now).

It was pretty funny, actually ... the guy sincerely thought Yuko was pointing at him, and her illustration of his reaction is an accurate representation. Actually, I think these days he wears a shirt when he lounges on the balcony ... aw.
Edit: I'm going to be at AKON this weekend with Johnny Wander merchandise (prints and Phoenix Down shirts in limited sizes)! Stop by and say hello!

If you're relatively new to the comic, I apologize! In the past we've covered Yuko's aversion to girly things. It is touched upon again here - clearly, Yuko is not a makeup kinda gal.
The epilogue to this comic is that George was about to explain why he wanted lipstick, and then I stopped him. I really don't want to know.
