Comic for August 19, 2020

Welcome back!!! To me and to all of you! Thank you for sticking around and for your patience.

It’s been a long three months for many of us. Since then I had to replace my PC, my Wacom tablet, and figure out new versions of software that I use to create my comics, as well as handling work and life. I’ve been through a lot of bouts of anxiety, which unfortunately made it difficult for me to draw. But I’m happy to say that brighter times are ahead, and I’m happy to be back to drawing!

The Sunday comics are a great deal of work, and this one was no less. I decided to make swatches of all the colors I use in making a GD Sunday, and I was shocked to see I used over 100 different colors and shades! No wonder they take me so long! But I’m such a stickler for detail, I just can’t do it any other way.

This comic *had* to be a Sunday, it just couldn’t have been done in 4 panels. There was too much to say and too much sentiment. Sorry that the first comic back is a sad subject!

A few people asked what was going to happen to Sputnik and was he going to join the rest of the crew who volunteered to take the place of the colonists. Of course Captain Thew wasn’t going to allow that. But it doesn’t make it any easier to be left behind.

Stay tuned to see what happen next! And again, thank you for your support!
