As promised, here’s a new “old” comic strip! It’s from 2007, and actually is one of the very first strips I drew, if I recall correctly. One thing that’s immediately apparent about these early strips is the overabundance of text boxes accompanying the images. I used to have them in all of my comics actually, probably heavily influenced by A Softer World, but eventually someone told me to “show, don’t tell” instead.
Other things I remember about this comic: The title, and quite possibly the idea, came from playing “Message in a Bottle” by The Police in Guitar Hero 2. Also, the transparent bottle glass in the first panel took me forever to make. Oh, and the comic is of course entirely auto-biographical, hah!
