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.

Comics are running late. It's been a bit of a week here.
We do have two cool things for you, though.



Firstly, Galen drew us some amazing fanart of Tipper and we're glad to have a chance to show it off here! If you like it, check out their comic Boys Love Boys' Love (which, fair warning, can get rather NSFW sometimes).
Secondly, Isabel did 31 drawings for Inktober. We hope that you enjoyed them. Eric Pearson created a video montage of them. If you missed any, they're all here:

Hi guys... a few things... last month I participated in Inktober over on my Twitter, most with either a Nicole and Derek or Apartment for Two theme. It's over now, but you can still check them all out.

Ok, now for the other big news... what the heck is Apartment for Two, you might ask?

Short answer: it's what I am now calling my other comic Adult Supervision Required. The long answer is that I felt it was time to change things up for ASR... while I do still like the name, perhaps it gives off vibes that the comic really shouldn't have, so I came up with another name. I've been concerned that some people may see 'Adult' in the title and make assumptions. And to go with the name change, I'm going to be changing the story format a little. Every now and then I'll be doing short story arcs (but I cannot promise they'll all be arcs... or what kind of schedule the comic will have). N&D is always my first priority in comic-land, so if I only have the mental enegery for one comic, it'll be N&D. If you'd like to know when the comic updated as soon as it updates (give or take a few minutes), please check out the NamirDeiter Twitter account for all comic updates.

I know change can be concerning (I've actually been planning on this for a while now, part of my artist block for A42 made it hard to pull the name change trigger), so thank you for putting up with it. So far we've updated two days in a row, which is pretty good for a weekly-to-intermittant comic.

Apartment for Two's website is http://apartmentfor2.com. The previous domain, adultsupervisionrequired.com, will continue to work for the forseeable future.

10.01.2018 - Terrence Marks:
Three comics this week! We should be running Monday, Tuesday, and Friday this week since we missed one last week.
07.16.2018 - Terrence Marks:
We've got two character videos, again courtesy of our friend Eric Pearson. Meet Nicole and Meet Derek!


07.01.2018 - Terrence Marks:
Update news! Isabel has been going through a lot lately, including a serious case of artists block.

Right now, we've got the next comic inked. We hope to have that finished on Tuesday. We'll be going on a Tuesday/Thursday schedule for a bit. We'll see how that goes and, we appreciate every one of you.

We've got the last few comics fully colored and shaded. NamirDeiter.net members have been given an extra month on account of the delays and the sketch preview of the upcoming comic has been posted there.
