In anticipation of the release of issue #2 of Comics Now! magazine tomorrow, I'm posting a scan of the initial sketch I did for the strip. I actually did the sketch for issue #1, but the gag was changed just before publication. Being the economical (read lazy) guy I am, I used the gag for issue #2. The cartoon was originally done with the expectation of a standard three-panel strip. I fleshed it out for the full-page format. I'll post the finished strip tomorrow.
