Okay, so first off if all these years all my metacomments have bothered you, there's a tumblr now, just with sporadic images, starting with this comic. So you won't get everything, but if you just want the occasional comic or photo that you can reblog or whatever, follow me there.
Okay, now that all those nonchalant folk scrammed, I'm going to chat with all you lovelies. So I've been working on this one longer than most, part of why I missed some regular posts, multiple page drawings transferred into full color, and I think it looks pretty alright. I must admit that while it started out a joke about creating a universal scapegoat, as with most my stuff, it gained many levels and subtexts to end a little bittersweet, because I can't really just seem to make you folks happy, I just want to relate to you and then bum you out. Also, if you're seeing themes that you think carry over from other comics of mine, yeah, there's a lot of mise en abyme in this, most of which is intended to be lost on everyone but me(ex: the color scheme is derived from a blanket with dinosaurs on it that I had when I was a kid). Regardless, enjoy:

Alright, so if you've been following this for awhile, you know that in addition to all my comics-ing I'm a photography student, and if you have the misfortune to having talked to me about this lately, you know all about my alternative film processes studies, and how much I geek out when saying phrases like "expanding what film, and ergo, the photographic image has the potential to be". So these are some prints made using Inkodye (made by the good folks at Lumi, I swear this is isn't a product plug, I'm just this excited about the possibilities this stuff offers). Fr those of you with a background in this sort of thing, it's easier to use, cheaper, colorful, liquid light. For the non darkroom-lurkers, it's a bottle of awesome UV-sensitive goo. These are my first prints with it, which will be part of something I'm putting together this weekend.
See what I did there? Pun! Oops, wait more meta-commentary because I just realized it's still a huge tiff file. Working through some old not-printable negatives via digital scanning. Not sure what I'm doing with this one yet, but not done with it as a project, so stay tuned.
