@ the Donut Diner....

Well kids, at long last I've started back at working on my old comic strips .....from a near decade ago. While the writing has not improved (and I doubt many have anything near my strange black sense of humor), at least the drawings have come a long ways....and yet I'm still trying to find that right look for a true finish. Do I keep it "sketchy" or more of the slick clean-up look? 

I spent forever it seems on 'pushing' the pose, especially for Joe (for the Chainsaw Maniac I did less - as I wanted a more deadpan look).....but honestly I think it could have gone further. There's also a damn tangent with Joe's thumb in the last panel - son of a bitch!

Oh well....next time.....
