Kingsley and I made an attempt at relaunching the comic before pretty much throwing in the towel. So yeah.

Before too long I went back to doing comics by myself, though this time it was much more stream of consciousness randomness even than before. Still, there was a lot of stuff I liked here.

This was where Kingsley again ended up too busy to draw comics partway through. Le sigh. The name of storyline came from Tama/Alan’s car, an old Lincoln Mercury (I think?) in which we had many adventures, what with it being the first car anyone in my circle of friends had to themselves.

I’d had the idea for a chapter about the characters going to an anime convention for ages. It’s one of those things where I have a distinct set of experiences that no one else has ever really even tried to capture. I have a whole thing about stories about going to conventions. This chapter wound up being really long, and also Kingsley wound up taking up the role of artist right in the middle.

So for whatever reason at this point I really didn’t feel like doing comics, and this was the stuff that came out. Some of it was actually really freeing and energetic, but it was still weird. Naturally Shadow and Midnight played a major role.

And we continue the Kurumi thing with her, Sylvia, and Jezebel taking a trip to the mall to hang out.

Yep. Time for some more Tales of Retail. Later it would be more like “Tales of Tech Support,” which is somewhat better. Partway through this chapter (1) Kingsley started coloring the comics and (2) I started inking them, both of which made them look a lot better.

As I said Jenny/Sunny has mellowed out a bit over the years (and also become a geologist and gotten married, to another geologist from New Zealand), but it still one of the most amazingly upbeat and positive people I’ve ever known.
