There are times when I get a bit of wanderlust and need to just get out of the house and take a trip for a while... those times inevitably end with me feeling like Mariska here.

...aaaaaaand after YEARS of buildup, Mariska and Ichabod are finally in the same room together, in a non-holiday comic at least! Is it everything you hoped and dreamed of? Actually, I feel a bit like Marika looks here, because I was waaaaay ahead of schedule with this page nearly the whole way through. I almost had the whole thing done around midnight, there was just the final touches of editing and text placement to take care of... and then I had one of those "NO, SLEEP NOW" moments where I just had to drop everything. I mean, it's still a finished page before noon, which is good, but we were THIS close to me getting up before it was even dawn. I miss those days.

Oh, and I'm also feeling a bit like Mariska because I went through all the trouble of re-learning how to draw Tabitha's big ol' engine-with-a-cockpit-strapped-to-it spaceship, only for the final page layout to leave it mostly hidden behind Ichabod and The Cap'n. DANG IT.

Also, speaking of being THIS close, we ALMOST started the new set of TWC Incentives today. I came really, really close to going ahead and posting the first one, that's totally within the realm of possibility... buuuuuuut I still don't quite have enough of a buffer built up to be sure that I won't run out and start scrambling to get new ones done in time for the regular updates. And seeing how I wound up tripping at the finish line even WITHOUT an incentive to worry about, I'd say it was the right call. But it's almost time! IT'S SO TANTALIZINGLY CLOSE!

@ Blitz: It's everything I expected from their first in-continuity-comic-page face-to-face meeting (outside flashbacks). Though, to be honest, I WAS also expecting the two Junior Nitpickers to interrupt said meeting in some way.

Oh, just you wait. SOMETHING is gonna get disrupted...

Like so many other interactions in this comic, I've been on both sides of that last panel.

What's interesting is being stuck in the MIDDLE of it.

The apple is back! And seemingly always with only one bite out of it. which means:
A. Ichabod only takes incredibly tiny bites
B. Ichabod only ever takes one bite, and chews it for hours while carrying the apple around
C. Ichabod has a huge supply of fresh apples in hammerspace, and only takes one bite out of each before discarding it back into hammerspacetrashrecycling
D. It's some sort of future regenerating mutant apple that never exhausts, so it only looks like it just has one bite taken always

E. It's actually an elaborate bottle for an apple-flavored beverage that's only SHAPED like an apple with one bite taken out of it.
