JEFBOT17_stampHere it is, my most topical webcomic to date! This strike has been in the making for so long now, I really couldn’t resist. The fact that I could even comment on the whole issue in some small way made me happy that I have a venue to do so. If you happen to see writers picketing, give them a honk or drop by with some donuts or beverages, I guarantee it will be appreciated.

You might notice that I experimented a bit with the focus-pulling effect in this strip. In addition to it being cool-looking (at least to these eyes), I thought it served a practical purpose by allowing me to direct the viewer’s attention to where I wanted it to go. Also, it’s a break from the way I normally draw the characters, with both of them being on the same plane. Let me know what you think.
