I know what you’re thinking.
I said I was just going out for milk and that was a few weeks ago. I know. I apologize. But it took me forever to find a good date on those milk jugs.
Come on, don’t look at me like that. What? Look, I know I don’t have the milk with me. I got thirsty on the way home. Yes milk can quench your thirst. Yes it can.
YES IT CAN. Because, fuck water that’s why.
Alright, if you’re going to act like this then I’m leaving again. We need milk anyway.
Ok now that that’s out of the way, how are you guys doing? I know it’s been a while. I was on vacation, but I know the comic should have been up Tuesday anyway. To be honest, I think I’ve been feeling burned out lately. Like…really burned out. Working on the comic just seems like work and the comic has never seemed like work to be before. So I don’t know what’s going on. It’s actually taken me a few DAYS to complete this comic which isn’t right. I kept working on it every now and then and here it is! It’s actually the very first comic of Mint Condition redone!
I’ve gotten some requests and questions in the past about redoing the very first Mint Condition and that’s happened in greater frequency ever since I started doing the comic in color, and you know what? I got pretty curious myself. So here you go! I really like how this turned out, so in the future I might offer some sort of poll so you guys can decide which vintage comic I should redone. In fact, you’re more than welcome to post suggestions in the comments. I won’t do them a lot because you guys come here to read new jokes, but every now and then it might be cool to see some of the old comics redone. I might do it like…2 or 3 more times at some point in the future. I dunno.
Anyway, like I said I’ve just been feeling so burned out. I think I’ve gotten to a point in my life where after working for 3 years straight on Mint Condition (and taking very few breaks and vacations) all I seem to want to do is not work. Obviously I have to work some, but you know what I mean. For the majority of Mint Condition I was living in a small town away from all my friends so I really had a lot of time on my hands. Now I’m back and surrounded by my friends again, and it’s feeling like the old days to me. After all, you only live once right? I should hang out with my friends as much as I can.
I’m working on moderating my time better, and I will keep doing the comic. Believe me, I’m not stopping Mint Condition. I plan on doing this for a long time, and after all I do still need to get that damned book out. And I will work on getting the comics up on time, but if they are late I apologize.
As for Friday’s comic I don’t think I’ll be able to get one finished by then, but you’re welcome to check back. I might end up changing the update schedule again to one day a week, but I don’t want to. I just might have to for a little while to preserve sanity and get things worked out (again, like the book).
Until next time everybody.
