First off, I wanted to say how absolutely great it was seeing all of you regular JEFbot readers in the comments when I posted the previous strip. It had been SO long since my last comic I knew it was entirely possible that I could post the strip and not get a single response. Anyway, you guys came through with all the enthusiasm and awesomeness you’ve shown in the past and I just wanted you to know it was appreciated. Y’all are seriously THE BEST.

Okay, so it’s a holiday miracle – I was able to get another strip up while we’re still in 2016! With any luck I’ll be posting the next strip – the conclusion of the Peppermint Elf storyline – before things get super busy again. Right now things don’t look too good for P.E., but things rarely go well for those who encounter the Bat, ya know?

I sincerely hope you all had a great time celebrating wherever/whatever/whoever you celebrate during this season and I wish you all a Happy New Year!!! I’m looking forward to 2017 even with all the insanity that’s been going on in the world, lately. Let’s all hope for a good one.

OH! And here’s a little something I’ve been working on and thought I’d share. These are still in the prototype phase (this being ver.2) and my sewing skills are still developing but let me know what you think! I’ll post some more pics from different angles in a separate blog post, soon:
