Arthur, King of Time and Space


Last year at about this time I announced that every year I'd run out my filler reserve Christmas week in order to give myself a break and to keep the gags from getting stale. Since then though I've got involved in the Daily Grind Iron Man challenge from which I'll forfeit if I run one of these fillers on a weekday. (At least, according to the interpretation of the rules by the contest judge who responded to my discussion on the Grind message board.) So, Decembers until I win or lose the challenge, I only get weekends off. This year there were only three fillers left in the buffer anyway.


A reader noted on the message board that in Thursday's gag Morgan wasn't wearing gloves but Friday's she was. Another reader noted that in Wednesday's gag she was, and in Thursday's her dialog does include the phrase, "The gloves are off." The lack of gloves Thursday was, of course, a coloring error; but now I think I'll leave it.


Ryan Estrada's curmudgeonly webcomic critic Welton Colbert is having a guest strip week at Comixpedia this month, and one of the guest strips is from me. Ryan's brief in his requests for guest strips specified that respondents show Welton reviewing their own work. The first panel of my guest strip is swiped from Welton's commentary on the Daily Grind, in which Ryan drew each panel in the style of a different Grinder, including me. The other panels of mine are my rendering of his rendering of Welton in my style, an exercise he was flatteringly enthusiastic to see I'd attempted. Thanks, Ryan.
