This strip was a little bit of character development and a little bit of personal gratification.  After I had come up with the characters in Jorocks & the Quads, I wanted to show them as people, not just members of Jorocks’ band.  The once-a-week schedule limits how much time I can spend on side characters, so I settled for this.

Also, I think this is the first time we’ve ever seen Chris wearing a different outfit (excluding the Pitchfork 3 and April Fools’ comics).

Next week has all sorts of stuff going on! It will be the end of The Secret Life of Jorocks Raefish, the comic will turn four years old, and there will be A FULL WEEK of comics, including the start of the next arc, which is looking to be the most clever storyline I’ve written yet!
