Words! Big steamin’, gleamin’, streamin’ piles of wordy words! I try not to inflict them on you — my gracious and wonderful readers — too terribly often, but I fear you shall have to indulge me every once in a great while.

Though not done entirely digitally, this is the first strip I’ve worked on with my shiny new Wacom Bamboo Connect. (I did the initial sketch in pencil and then inked/colored/etc. with the Bamboo.) I’ve used a tablet before, doing some light graphical work for SJ Games, but never for freehand foolery. Very weird, but kinda fun. With any luck, I should go fully digital soon.

And with the money I’ll save on ink and copy paper, I’ll make up the difference in… uh… some… quantity of strips. Oh, god dammit…
