Brisbane Adams and Kimberly Taylor had been friends, rivals and potential love interests when they worked in the Minerva Theatre. Just as they were getting close to figuring each other out, the Minerva Theater shut down. As their friends scattered to the winds, Brisbane - now jobless and homeless - was left to fend for himself. The only person he could turn to was his friend, rival and potential love interest, Kimberly Taylor.

The two of them faced the world, both its victories and defeats, together... and cautiously waited to see who would be the one to make the first move - who would say it first...

You Say it First is the sequel to Unlike Minerva. You could start there if you're a completist. Or we've got a nice jumping-on point about halfway in, if you're in a hurry.

It ran from 2004 and concluded in 2013. We recommend starting at the beginning.

Hi, folks!

We're going to be doing sketch updates this definitely week and maybe next week, depending on how things go.

Why? Personal stuff. I'm under a decent amount of stress right now. Mainly the apartment issues (and stress at home is the worst kind of stress).

Also, my sister is nearing the end of a difficult pregnancy and I'm spending 2-3 days a week watching my nephew. I'm gone most of the day those days and I'm exhausted when I get back home. I'm not used to kids. Fortunately, I love the little booger so it's all good. But it impacts my ability to create comics.

How did tablet testing go? Less well than I'd like. I like the tablet, but it took a lot more time than working with ink and paper. And given the above, that's a dealbreaker right now. And I don't want to change the aesthetic of the comic right now. Between those two things, I'm going to be staying analog for now.

Thank you, and we hope your week is better than ours is probably going to be.

Comics are still being worked on. In the meantime, we are looking into going all-digital for the comics. Due to this and continuing apartment-related issues, we're going to have a week of sketches and sketch comics. Hope you enjoy!
08.12.2015 - Terrence Marks:
We're going through some apartment-related issues right now. They're not interesting enough for me to bother you with, but they're very time-consuming. Tonight, Nicole and Derek. Tomorrow night, The NDU will update. And if all goes well, both of those comics will update on Friday.

Isabel's sister is raising money for surgery for her dog. If you donate, we'd appreciate it.

If she makes her goal, we will publicly release a twelve-page bonus comic.

If she makes double her goal - and what she's asking for covers half of the cost - we will publicly release a twenty-four page bonus comic.

What will the book be about? We kinda haven't thought that far ahead. We'll put a poll up when she makes the goal. I've got a Patrick and Sofia story set post-YSiF that I've been kicking around for a while, but it's up to you.
07.27.2015 - Terrence Marks:
We mentioned more changes last time. As you've probably seen, we've taken comics off the front page of NamirDeiter.com. This is because we've got Nicole and Derek and The NDU, and both comics have equal claims to being the new ND.

We'd prefer if you read both, of course. We're hoping to improve the website further in the near future, but this is the big step we've been looking to take.
