Look at that date.
Yep. I drew a New Year’s comic in May.
Oh, those where the halcyon days, weren’t they? I was drawing these strips to be printed in a book, not posted immediately on the internet. Comics didn’t have freshness dates. You went to the comic shop and bought the comic when it was damn good and ready to be published. Now, if you post your web comic a moment too late, you are crucified for being a slacker and not feeding the millennials in a time frame they are accustomed to.Anyway, we’ve crossed into 1997! What a year! I turned 30! (I’ll wait while y’all do the math.) My professional life was booming and my personal life was about to take a 10 year nose-dive. Where’s my damn time machine so I can go back and step on a butterfly or something.
But somethings never change. I have pretty much lived my life for the last 25 years just as Max states. I consider it successful. I am sure nobody else agrees.
Happy New Year everyone. May your 2013 be an awesome one.
