My first idea for a title was “2 Become 1.” I typed it, looked it over, and then immediately got up and soaked my head in extremely cold water.

I actually tried to letter this strip by hand, which took over three hours and ended up looking so awful as to be absolutely unusable. So I thought I’d just download and use some crazy comic book font instead. Looking at it now, I’m wondering if I shouldn’t just stick with Arial.

The lesson here is: don’t experiment. Don’t try new things. Never leave your comfort zone, not for any reason.

There you have it.

I’ve been meaning to make new Sisyphus strips for quite a while now. The comic after the next one will be a return to Sisyphus, Sawtooth, and their tartaraen misadventures. (If I don’t announce it, I probably won’t do it.)
