His pipe was made by Kapp and Peterson

here's a couple of pages from the latest. I'm almost done watercoloring this comic, maybe it'll be done this weekend.

1) turnip, not radish, please

2) i had nightmares last night about not being ready to teach courses in the new semester - i haven't had to do that since the twentieth century

3)nor have i smoked since the 20th century, either

4)did you ever see this poem by Rumi?


Why does a date-palm lose its leaves in autumn?
Why does every beautiful face grow in old age
Wrinkled like the back of a Libyan lizard?
Why does a full head of hair get bald?
Why is it that the lion's strength weakens to nothing?
The wrestler who could hold anyone down
Is led out with two people supporting him,
Their shoulders under his arms?

God answers,

“They put on borrowed robes
And pretended they were theirs.
I take the beautiful clothes back,
So that you will learn the robe
Of appearance is only a loan.”

Your lamp was lit from another lamp.
All God wants is your gratitude for that.

So awesome, bro! You know I want a copy!

Hey, any idea what happened to Kaz? He hasn't published an Underworld strip in fucken forever, and as far as I can tell has been 100% radio silent.

The last I heard of Kaz, he was getting more involved in different animation projects. Maybe the print stuff is on the shelf for now as the animation is eating up all the time.
