Late. :(

My apologies, one and all, for the comic being late. Final page of this storyline will be up on Thursday. I emphatically deny Pokemon Go had anything to do with it...

To give everyone an update on the family situation. My wife's now midway through her chemo. She has her good days and her bad but, thankfully, the good days outnumber the bad and we haven't had any scares and hospital stays like at the beginning of the process. I want to thank everyone for their well wishes. They mean a lot.

See everyone on Thursday.

Girls Kissing Girls

If Theresa had Pandora hooked up on her phone she'd probably have some random songs popping up on her playlist right now to suit the moment.

"I Kissed a Girl" (Katy Perry)

"Boyfriend" (Tegan and Sara)

"My Girlfriend's Girlfriend" (Type O Negative)

Then again, I can't imagine Theresa listening to Type O Negative. Chrys, on the other hand...

What will happen next?

Find out on Thursday! See you then!

Religion

Considering Theresa's on crutches, wearing a jacket too big for her (which has been laying on the ground in an old, abandoned subway station for weeks), and in just about the worst part of town it isn't surprising the priest thinks she needs a place to stay.

I wrote Narrow because I felt the need to explore Theresa's faith quietly. Not so much off to the side, away from the main story, but in a place where the pressures of the plotline weren't shoving it into a corner. Faith and religion are nuanced, which can be lost when you're fighting button headed men or running away from plastic yuppie zombies.

Remember, this takes place shortly after chapter 1 ended. Which means not so long ago Theresa kissed her female best friend, took her off life support, and nearly attempted suicide. All of which her religion tells her are sins. Now, she's in a place where God seems to have no place and she finds herself attracted to another woman.

And so here she is. In a church and praying, trying to understand who she is and where she is and what part she plays in the much, much wider multiverse she finds herself in. I think that's something many of us can relate to.

See you Monday.
