Phew, I’m tired. I could have been done sooner but I hate having nothing in the background.
You know how I said on Tuesday that I’ve been itching to do this storyline? I forgot to mention that I’ve been itching even longer to get Sam wearing this shirt. It is one of the first gags I came up with. Apparently my timing is spot-on, since they put out another terrible movie this week.
What else? I’ll probably be working on a zine soon. Unrelated to the comic, but it’ll have some drawings in it, along with some writing, of course. I was about to type “keep your eyes peeled” but after thinking about it that is the Most Disgusting Idiom, even if it is only talking about keeping your eyeballs eyelid-free. Do whatever you want with your eyes!
↓ TranscriptJULIA: Wait, Sam, there's something I wanted to talk to you about.
JULIA: You’re gay, right?
SAM: …Yeeees, where are you going with this?
JULIA: So my boyfriend Mark, you know Mark, right? Well Mark works at this, like, computer place and like, last week this new girl started working there and they were like, talking and stuff about computers, blah blah blah, really boring, but then he was like, “oh do you have a boyfriend” but he wasn’t hitting on her because, duh, me! But she was like, “oh, no, I’m single” and he was like “oh I should set you up with one of my computer nerd boring friends” and she was like “sorry man I like girls” and he was like “oh that’s cool whatever” but then he told me about her and I was like WHOA! We should like, get these girls together!
SAM: So all of that means…
JULIA: I totally got you a blind date!
SAM: Wait, what? Why? Why me? Is she our age? Does she like literature, too?
JULIA: Uh, I dunno.
JULIA: But you’re both gay!
SAM: And you and Nicolas Sarkozy are both straight! Want his number?
