art by Zlatan Marić

This comic is something of a metatextual milestone.

It’s the first comic in the series set after I started making these comics. And it’s the first appearance of Zlatan, who is also featured on the art duties. One interesting side effect of introducing Zee as a character is that it introduces a narrative viewpoint other than Jason’s into the series: For the whole first page he’s not scene, but blunders in on page 2, taking over the plot. But there’s a whole scene here that doesn’t revolve around him … and I love that! :)

NEXT: Pancakes are served!

AFTER THAT: Another pin-up by Choklit Daddy on Thursday night!
