Wombat Notes

I'm a couple weeks behind. Not so bad, but it will affect an upcoming story line idea I had. Obviously this whole Wombat abusing his position thing isn't over. I've got at least two more week's worth of strips for it. I had planned to have this story wrapped up by the end of March, but I don't think that's going to happen now. Unfortunately, I had a plan for a major event in the strip that has to take place on April 1st. Likely I'll just finish this story out and then start that one with a post date.

My friend and fellow web comic artist Jane Irwin is on the Killamazoo Derby Darlins' Killa Crew so I've been to a few games now. Once you understand the rules, the game is really quite interesting. Plus, lovely ladies on skate ramming into each other...so yeah, there's that. Anyway, home games for the team are held at the local ice hockey rink, so that's where this strip takes place. I don't know if the mayor actually has his own private box there, but for purposes of the strip.

We see the return of "fair-weather" Merryweather. Next week we learn what his job with the city is, and what the repercussions of the Wombat's actions are going to be.
