I do believe this is coffee week! This is therapeutic for me, as it's that golden period of awesome seasonal flavors and I'm currently on medication that forces me to limit my caffeine. (It's just not worth taking in the sugar burst if it's decaf.) I love my pumpkin spice lattes - and toasted marshmallow or gingerbread lattes even more! This year I might not get any, so I shall let them flow for my characters! Vote here to see the new comic!
By the way, as you might guess from the medication talk, I'm still struggling with health stuff. I've survived a lot of bad fortune with health already, and I'll get through this too, but I'm gonna flail and go very slow for a while longer. No one's been forgotten! I just keep hitting setbacks. I'm sorry!
So what happened with Johnny? That's a question... nobody seems to be asking. Well, too bad, you get to find out anyway.
Originally today's comic was to be a triple-sized one, giving everyone a little wrap-up, but I decided to play with Johnny's panel and extend it a bit. You can see extra Johnny (you know you want to) by voting on TWC here!
If you missed a deleted scene, you'll have to wait until that story appears in the books - which are 3 years behind the comic run. (See? It pays off to read the news section regularly, and to vote even MORE regularly.) Well, this one probably won't make the book due to size issues, so I'll make it viewable somewhere when its time has passed.
One last thing. I think I put in a workaround for The Precocious Store messing up with emails. Life is easier now!
So the first of the month is hitting at an inopportune time. I'm out of town, which means packing for travel instead of packing Kickstarter boxes and no access to a scanner to digitize any newly-drawn comics. I made a joke about this on Twitter a few days back, and, well... when life gives you lemons, do something stupid with those lemons! Vote here to see the new comic!
Aside from meta-silliness, this one is fun because it's a chance to show kids being so very kids. (As the last member of the "I didn't grow up with the internet" generation, and someone who must work traditional because he can't use a digital tablet at all, this stuff also stings a bit.)
As with all first-of-the-month updates, the Copper Roads from the previous month will be added to the archive page. It probably won't come until the evening, as I'm leaving the house as soon as I post this, and I'll be gone for much of the day. (Remind me if I forget!) UPDATE: Last's month's comics are now archived, starting here! Go enjoy them again!
Please don't block my ads! I need them to live!
