First page of the new year! I’d been seriously considering trying to up my output to a strip a week as my New Year’s resolution, but I’m not sure if that’s going to work out. I’ve been given a full three-course load at the art school I teach at, so I may not be able to pull that off. We’ll see, though… I have officially bowed out of the next alpha-project–which I think is going to be “AlphaBots”/aliens and robots–so I should have some time freed up as a result of that. I’d sure love to wrap up _Oyster War_ in 2013.
