(Click Comic for Larger View)

The Pirates have finally attacked with all of their swashbuckling glory. Of course, now that I have had some time to think about the storyline more, I realize I should have called these guys the "Pira-rats." Maybe that is too confusing spelled out, but it sounds funny (sort of) when you say it. Oh well, live and learn.

Here is the post that I promised from a couple of days ago. As far as posts go, I am going to consider this post the new one, so if all goes well, the next post will be on Sunday after next. (Cross your fingers.) So, do you have suggestions for a new poll, a comment, request for a store item, or if you just want to drop a line? Heck, you can even send Zeb (The Angry Bear) a letter and he might answer you. You can comment by clicking the number of comments below this box, or you could drop me an e-mail at the address in the sidebar.

Update Again

I know that it has been a long while since I posted a new comic, but I promise you that I have not forgotten the handful of devoted readers here. If all goes well, I will post a new comic soon, probably before the end of the week. I will need to buy a new brush pen, but that should not be a problem.

The reason for the inordinate delay has been the constant (but, thankfully, the slowly shrinking) pile of work that I have before me. There are several more books to read and papers to write, but during the odd moments of downtime (like meal breaks) I will have my sketch book before me. The sketching helps me think about other things too and acts sort of like a release valve on a pressure cooker. If you are so inspired, please leave a comment, suggestion, or otherwise. Until soon, I promise.
