America Day

So we've been a little busy-deal with it, or we'll come and invade your country too. Don't think we won't, because we will; we know where you live.

If you haven't already figured it out, this 4th of July comic, like our Easter Comic, is not strictly canonical. We will resume the story of Mojo's gankage next week, but this week we just really haven't had time to dedicate to a proper story, and we want to get it JUST right. For those of you who are wondering, Sayid and I did NOT discuss the plots of the comics before I went on vacation. He surprised me with them, just like I did to him when he went away. In both cases, the comic sort of generated it's own momentum and just had to turn into a complete story arc. That's the honest truth. Sometimes these characters just get themselves into the dumbest situations, and we just kind of talk about how they'll get out, then we draw it. I never really understood it before, when authors talked about characters 'writing themselves' but these guys are starting to feel real. These comic abstractions of video-game images, of 'real' people, now seem to living lives of their own, deep beneath the layers of tin-foil keeping the CIA at bay.

Speaking of imaginary people, we'd like to welcome Willem Jak to the cast of StrongandMighty. We expect big things from him in the future.

I notice Sayid and I are NOT looking at the flag... something on the horizon got our interest? The flaming wreck of a CNR punching a hole thru the stratosphere? Small black helicopters? Smeg or Carita's receding backside?

Can hardly wait. Thanks Oro and Sayid. Happy 4th!
