Yes! It's a new page! I'm on a short vacation and I'm taking the time to crank out as many comics as possible based on what was still in my files before my vacation started. At this point, I cannot guarantee that I'll come close to finishing this - we'll just have to take it one step at a time.

This page and whatever pages will follow are a collaboration between my 20-year-old self, who drew a version of this in 1992, and my current, grizzled 44-year-old self. 20-year-old me worked in black and white and used draughting pens to ink. 44-year-old me works in color and uses digital tools almost exclusively. The original version of this fizzled out after about five pages. The new version may do the same, or not. I don't know. As we go along, I expect to deviate more from the originals anyway, so I'll gradually get to the stage where I'm on my own.
