Ah yes, hang on…something in my eye…

That’s better.

First off, let me thank Michael and Marisa for creating the Comic Underdogs. Without them, I never would’ve met great people like Hjels, the creator of October 20th and today’s strip. Man, I can’t thank you enough for this. It’s beautiful.

Also, a big thanks to melaredblu, creator of Princess Chroma, for Eleanor’s line.

There’s a callback to a strip I did for him recently, and for some reason, it really gets me right here. Hang on a second.

Okay, now, back to Groovy, Kinda. I’m working on something special and a little different right now. I’m writing a storyline that will take a few strips to tell. Now, normally I just start a storyline with an idea of where it’s going and make most of it up as I go along.
But this time I wanted to write it out first-beginning, middle, and end-before I start posting it. That’s what I did with melaredblu and hippo on the crossovers, and it worked out nicely.
Also, I’ve had a couple of times where I’ve started something and hit an artist’s block and couldn’t finish it (Phyl’s memorial, for example).
So, I probably won’t have a strip up this Thursday, but I should be able to start the new storyline on Monday. Thanks for you patience with all this. I think you’ll like the result.

And here’s a hint: it’s got some people we haven’t seen in over a year (real time, not Groovy, Kinda time). Stick around!
