Phew, had to wade through tons of settings to get my aging phone working as an internet bridge to upload this (old) strip (it’s from 2008, actually!). That means the internet connection at my folks’ place is still down, so I haven’t been able to upload anything else this week. With some luck it will be up and running for next weeks comics, but I can’t promise anything, unfortunately. Oh, and to join in on the celebration of our jolly alien friends above; here everyone: have a brand new year you can use or throw away as you please! :D
