So this one is a little late, but I hope you will agree it was worth the wait. The catharsis! The conflict! This is definitely one of my favorite pages both because the art is rad and because it asks a question that everyone from Long Island asks sooner or later: just how Long Island am I?

When we are honest with ourselves, hidden away in the secret gardens of our most private moments, the answer to that question can be chilling.

We haven’t forgotten about the contest we announced on Facebook, you know, the one where we will select one of our fans and draw him or her into the strip. Look for that announcement soon!

And now Patrick, I leave you to spin this late-strip-PR-nightmare straw into gold.
