"Word Games" or 24 Hours 2007"

The 24 hour comic challenge this year was a much harder affair for me this year than it has been in years past. The previous two years were held at Night Flight in Library Square and I made a point of grabbing one of the smaller card tables in the back. This year I was on a long table at the new location and that, coupled with being sick made it increasingly hard to focus. I feel like the story is rambling and I never got the "aHa! This is where the story is going!" moment. Each page was a challenge.
And here's the thing...I can handle boys. I can handle boys (of whatever age) when they get together in groups and try to out alpha the other. I can handle the profanity, I can handle the crude conversation...I can deal with it. Honestly. BUT NOT FOR 24 HOURS.
I felt like I needed to go home and do some sort of emotional cleanse. Instead I went home and collapsed in bed.

But still...I *FINISHED* For the third year running, 24 pages and a cover. Go me. This year's foray is what I hope will be the final chapter of my "Puzzles trilogy." Another year has passed in the lives of Evan, Junghwa, Oscar, Joyce, Jules and L.J. As always I was surprised where things went and again, while I feel this years entry is even more rambling than last year's "Loose Threads" I do like where the characters ultimately end up. It feels like a solid first draft. (More on that later)


Anyway, it's up! Thanks to fallenpegasus for his coding and getting this up and going for me!
