Sometimes I call our comic strip "The Hungry Beast." Every day it eats a comic. I've drawn almost two thousand strips, and it's eaten them all. I often walk around the house muttering "the beast is hungry. Gotta feed the beast."
So the fact that I've caught up on strips is ephemeral. My family is going on a four-day camping trip near Mt. Rainier, so as of tomorrow I'm behind again. I don't know when I'll be caught up again. Damn you, beast!
