I didn't read the below comment because it's so long. So I don't remember what it says.

Anyway, this is the first comic strip that I started to letter the words myself instead of use a font. I think it's better. What do you think?

This was during the time that the hiatus starting really taking hold. I was in college and started dating my future wife. Things took priority over the comic and it sadly suffered the consequences.



What, ho?!? Another update? So soon?! Yes! I now have consistently updated - 2 times in a row! It's a miracle!

Anyway, I've been very busy, but it couldn't hold back anymore and stayed up a couple of nights to get a couple strips done. I lettered my comic today instead of just using a computer font. I plan on doing that from now on as there are advantages to lettering one's self. For example, the text can stretch and stuff easier to fit what I want them to. Second of all, I won't get into any copyright trouble if I accidentally used some Font I have to pay royalties or etc on. Third of all, it's what the pros often do, so why go the easy route and type my text? Ha ha... And if I mess up I am fortunately able to draw the text in digitally after I do the inking on paper.

It's simple, but what do you think?

Yeah, it's the first one SuperMilo isn't shown in too! And this girl character - she's not an important character and we won't see her very much after this short story, so I'll tell you that the character's unofficial name is Annie. I based her hair and skin colors after a cartoon-styled self-portrait that Annie at did (thank you, it was helpful), so I did her the honor of naming the character after her.

In other news, I may start drawing the new main series of "The Misadventures of SuperMilo" soon, but no idea when you all will see it yet. Hope you're looking forward to it, though!"
