It’s true – I’ve been dragged off to Ireland for a few days as part of a surprise visit from an old AWACker friend who you’ll get to know very well through the upcoming strips.

Dave also commandeered my studio to create today’s strip while I was passed out on the couch.

And after last night’s Houston/Pittsburgh game, I wouldn’t put it past my Steelers-loving wife to break out the tazer on me.

The site will, however, update with my strips on the regular schedule while I’m gone, though comments may take a little longer to be approved.
