I got back into the habit of doing comics, though it was a lot of random stuff with no particular storyline or anything in mind.

I did finally go through with finishing the Kurumi arc as planned, apart from having originally planned to do it all in 4-koma format. There wasn’t any head injuries or insanity or anything like that, but creating/discovering Kurumi was a turning point for me, and, not to put too fine a point on it, let me start to somewhat undo a couple decades of repressing emotions.

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.

This was kind of a weird side story thing about two insane catgirls loosely based on the two black cats (of the same names) a friend had, with a bit of Josh Lesnick/CuteWendy influence too. It was kind of a weird, fourth-wall-breaking thing, and a lot of fun to do. I’d been planning to eventually reveal that they were Arlene’s nieces, but never got around to it.

Every now and then I just tossed up random comics about whatever. This chapter is one of those, starting with a joke about how Lara Croft has huge lips.
