Don't worry folks- though I was knocked outta commission for a while, I ain't quite dead yet. Time to make some replies for last page...
I'll be pissed in Jay's place lol
Well this behavior seems right up Howard's alley so I say good ridance ha
That guy is making everyone so miserable for a little fact like homosexuality... I hope he'll have the chance to understand his wrongdoing and cherish the friends he's backstabbing right now!

I've been binge-reading this since yesterday. The dialog during this dinner scene is so blowing me away.
Everybody is expressing a point of view that makes sense from their perspective, and even globally to some extent.
For me, this story underscores how each of us lives in a reality-tunnel and how hard it is to connect to others all of the time.
Like how it is in Amerika right now--we've become so polarized by our points of view that it's become risky to have one. The only good thing about this is you don't have to listen to too much toxic stuff in the workplace anymore.
Unless you work for a very small business.
P.S. I love the revolvermap and flag-counter.
@Kevin_Redcrow: Thanks much for the compliments! About ~60% of the conscious effort I put into this comic goes towards making each character at least understandable, if not likeable, so it's always nice to hear someone appreciates it. I hope you continue to enjoy the comic.
There's a lot of ways you can take the notion that a comic started years ago can remind someone of the world as it is now. I think for now, I'll go with funny, ha. At the moment, I work for a mid-sized business and I agree, the atmosphere is at least pleasant, despite us all knowing what happens elsewhere.
Oh, and speaking of which, I almost forgot I had that map and counter up. I'm glad you like 'em, haha!
Another webcomic artist has a page where she explains the entire process of producing her comix, emphasizing the order of steps.
The script is Step One before anything else. Clearly you pay close attention to planning.
What I like about the map, for me at least, is that it reminds me that other readers are real people in real places; not merely Avatars and text.
Okay, that's enough of my run-on sentences. ;-)
