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.

We're doing a holiday card exchange again!

How do you get one?
If you were a part of NamirDeiter.net this year and we have your address, you get a card.
If you ask for a card, we send you one. If you want to send us a card, we'd really appreciate it. Quantities are a bit limited, so the sooner you email us, the better.

Our address is:
Terrence and Isabel Marks
PO Box 2246

Who's on the card?
The card features Nicole, Brisbane, Kimberly, Dennis and David (the twins, Nicole's older brothers). The inside features Nicole and Derek.

We'll probably be sending them out around the beginning of December.
09.20.2015 - Terrence Marks:
This week's update schedule is:
Nicole and Derek: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The NDU: Tuesday and Thursday
09.08.2015 - Isabel Marks:
I have a new nephew! Everything went well. We spent most of the day in waiting rooms, waiting and keeping my new nephew's older brother occupied. Tomorrow may involve a fair amount of new-baby-watching and slightly-less-new-baby-watching. I have literally no idea what the next few days hold, so updates may be a little sporadic.
08.31.2015 - Isabel Marks:
Hey everyone, happy it's-still-too-dang-hot-out.

The short of it all is this: the comics are having an update change for the month. There's a chance it can stay this way, there's a chance it'll go back to the old schedule later. Nicole and Derek is moving to a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, The NDU is moving to a Tuesday and Thursday schedule while Wonder Kittens is going on an hiatus. The long of it? Things are kind of stressful right now over at Casa Marks. Between that and family things there has been little time or energy left for me and Terrence to work on comics. It's been difficult for us to even have the creative energy to write scripts lately- and without scripts I literally cannot do anything. Rather than just take a long hiatus till things settle down (we thought things with the apartment would be over by now, turns out we could be right back where we started with all this, sorry for leaving things vague) we'll be cutting the schedule in half. I'm really sorry about all this and thank those of you who have been patient and have been sticking it out with us. Stay cool out there. Unless you like it warm or are somewhere cold... then stay warm.
