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

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.

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!

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.
