Oops, I used all my opinions on the flavor text. Welp, this strip is the most "Couch Philosophy" Couch Philosophy has ever gotten. A true return to form. Where's Mal? Where's Mike? Where's all those characters we may/may not care about?

This one also wins the award for lamest Intro art but best Title calligraphy. Ech, we all have our slumps. I'm not Ryan Sohmers or anything, okay? I can admit it when my comic isn't in top form. Although it might be subtle enough that you don't see it, and I'm just coming at it from a weird angle. I'm at the point where I've got the style down pat and I can get through the process quicker, but spending less time on it still feels sorta wrong. When a script comes in that demands a little more in the art department, I'll try to up the ante.

Of course, I don't even know how important art is to this comic. It probably couldn't be xkcd simple, but maybe a lot of this is superfluous. I'd love to hear what you think in the comments. Or if you know me, just email me or something.

I'm out. *drops mic on floor, bounces and hits him in face* Agh!

I think the art style has improved to the point that it really shines within the context of your subject matter. Oh, and that last panel turned out extra great!

Oh, as for the art with this one - it didn't make me think of xkcd until you mentioned it, so that's a good thing, I guess.
(however, once you mentioned it, I can't unsee)

And, eh, I'm pretty sure 'calligraphy' refers to artistic hand-made writing which origins may or may not be traced to Eastern symbols...'alphabets'?

But that's just the prick in me showing off, the work with the title was great indeed!
