Avian Flu Alert

This ties into the previous joke about my habit of repeatedly catching bad colds from a month ago.

25 STRIPSThis is actually the 25th published strip! When I started drawing THIS IS ME, I had done next to no preparation. No roadmap, no cast of characters, no clue. I did literally one page of sketches before embarking on this madness.

Now, nearly two months later, I still haven't done any of the stuff you're supposed to do when doing a comic – character sheets or anything like that. Scott McCloud is going to be so disappointed in me.

*Well, make an educated guess, then.
