It's from an upcoming series in Between Friends that is really quite different from what I usually do in the strip. In fact, it's so different I'm not sure it's going to go over.
I decided to go ahead with it for two reasons:
1. It was fun to do.
2. I've been doing Between Friends for 16+ years now and I figure the strip is established enough to stretch a few boundaries.
I think the best strips are the strips you write for yourself rather than what you think people want to read. (Hmm...I guess that's three reasons.) The series starts July 26.
