Thanks to you all for your kind comments! It was great to know that people were enjoying it while I was working on it, even if I didn't have time to respond to everyone.

Now I have to work through all the other great entries!

Really enjoyed this Owen, some of the gags made me laugh out loud - love how you tied the two plot threads together at the end.

Glad you liked it, Tonia. Some of the jokes even made me laugh when I re-read them, which was unusual.

I didn't know at first how the two plot threads were going to collide, but I did work it out well before it happened.

Trivia note #1

Here's my thinking paper with initial character designs, some scribbling and a few notes I made so I could keep track of the story towards the end. This is the only other sheet of paper I used! Everything else was written as I pencilled it.

I post this in the interests of completeness and self-indulgence.

So glad! When I finished that page I wasn't sure if it was funny any more, and had second thoughts about it. No longer!

I thought of that, but those moustaches also make me think of the pringles guy.

This is easily one of the best gag comics, Owen. Well done!
