UJ Guest Comics

David and I started our webcomics at roughly the same time, and I’ve been super pleased to help him out with a guest comic the few-plus-one times I’ve done it. Especially since he’s a real cartoonist with a real comic, and I am/have neither of those things.

Corroboration” was actually the second strip I created, not too long before I started this site.  I liked it, but it needed to be tweaked, and I think I was afraid to touch it. So I held on to it for awhile.

By the way, the first strip I created was indeed the first one I put up (I’m differentiating between strips and single panels).
