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 had some iPad issues and didn't get that fixed until late in the day. Good news is it's fixed. Normally, we'd stay up late and get the comic finished. Unfortunately, we've got some medical tests scheduled tomorrow. We hope you have a happy Labor day.
08.26.2019 - Terrence Marks:
So, what's happening this week? One update is happening, on Friday.
Why? Isabel's computer has been overheating and randomly crashing which makes it difficult to make comics. We've added another fan, which should keep things going a bit longer. Also, we've got a bit more medical things to deal with this week. Further tests. And she had a crown come off last week and we're still dealing with that. So it's been a bit trying lately, for her. We thank you for your patience and support.
08.12.2019 - Terrence Marks:
And last week's tests were inconclusive. So uncertainty and more tests in the future. At least we've got that to look forward to. We'll try to update Tuesdays and Fridays in the meantime.
07.29.2019 - Terrence Marks:
Good news is that the colitis is gone. Bad news is that we're still working on figuring out the root cause of all this. Which means tests. Which means, in this case, no solid food. So, well, she'll get through this. But for now, we're taking a bit of time off.
06.25.2019 - Terrence Marks:
Two weeks ago, Isabel's stomach went from the normal amount of pain to extreme go-to-urgent-care levels of pain. Four hours later - which included a tour of the pharmacy, lab, and imaging departments - we had a diagnosis of colitis and some rather strong antibiotics.

Antibiotics are difficult on the stomach during good times, and these were not good times. The best information we're seeing on colitis is that certain foods can aggravate it, but that exact list is different for each person. We're trying to figure out what she can safely eat now that she's back on solid food. And trying to get things to the point where "a normal amount of stomach pain" is a thing of the past.

How are we doing? We're adjusting. We're getting better. Healing up. And we're glad that we've got very good insurance. But we're going to update once a week for a bit until we've got a better handle on things and Isabel is feeling better.

The comic is inked but it's not in any shape to be put up tonight. We'll have it for you on Friday and thank you, as always, for reading.
