I managed to the data off of my hard drive; but not without a big blow to my wallet... Guess which college kid's gonna be more tightfisted this upcoming semester! All joking aside (not really), we (and by "we", I mean "me") are introducing a new character to the strip - Jokestar! Say his name outloud a few times if you don't get it. He has the notion that he can out perform me ("this novice here") with his own jokes. I'll let you guys be the judge of that.
As for the joke in the comic, I legitimately came up with it on my own and felt so proud of myself. And then I found out that a couple people already knew it... And fancy borders will be added on a later date along with a link to download the image.
