The last time I worked on NBD I decided to start writing the strip in what I call a “never ending storyline” style. That means that the story would just flow from comic to comic, instead of the gag strip/storyline/gag strip style I was using. It’s more fun to write, gives the comic more forward progression and lets the characters grow in a more organic way.
As a result, today’s comic features two characters who aren’t even in the About page and is the last part of a plotline that had been going on when I stopped working on the comic two months ago.
For those of you who want to get caught up, you can start with comic #168. That is the point at which I started writing the comic this way and it will explain what is going on and who the two people in the comic above are.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled webcomic.
