You’ve probably noticed that updates have been a bit sporadic lately. This is likely to continue for a while. The combination of new work hours and our busy time of year means that while we’re still going to shoot for Wednesdays, it might wind up being Thursdays sometimes. On the plus side, we’re going to try to avoid our yearly November break, because we’re crazy people, and we don’t want to pause this very important arc. We might do a short break once it wraps up.We’ll keep you updated, and thanks for your patience.
Welcome to Family Week!
Almost everyone in the four portraits to come is a supporting character. We see the main cast all the time, so this was a chance to have a little glimpse into the lives of those who don’t drive the main story. Each of these characters is also important to us personally, and has a full life and history both in and out of Sidekick Girl. Some of them have had major plot roles in the past, and some of them will have larger roles in the future. (That was not a hint, clue, foreshadowing, or suggestion to find connections. Do not panic. Find your towel.)
On to Ro and Joh. We all know Joh Riley, the owner and proprietor of Riley’s Pub. Ro has appeared twice; once in a photograph, and once (recently) filling in for Joh when he was sick. They have the distinction of being one of the very few honest to goodness married couples in the comic. They’re pretty much our favorite pair ever.
