Sad story.

In case you wondered why Leicester is permanently grumpy.

Still amused by the booby poster in the first panel though. I love your coloring!!!

@mitchellbravo: Thank you!

Because a lot of people assumed Leicester's wife and kid died in this comic - they didn't. I don't have any comics with them yet (someday, I hope!) but I drew Houston a few times:

@mitchellbravo: Haha, his father would strongly disagree if he knew about that! :D But yeah, Houston is a good kid, maybe not the brightest bulb in the shed and definitely very socially awkward but good.

@Oly-RRR: I'm really looking forward to his part in this comic. (well- like you said- someday, we hope!!)

@mitchellbravo: I definitely have at least one arc about him planned for the main story! I want to draw some shorts too but for some reason the ideas I had so far work better as standalone pictures. Eh, we'll see... :)

Oh man, you really packed a lot of story into one page. Maybe you could have even left out the second panel and we'd still get the same story. But leaving the second panel in sort of lead me to believe that we were going into a pleasant part of the story. These are really great to read!

@lsposto: Thank you! This one is a bit weird - it's technically the first mention of Houston but it's more about Leicester. All this will come up again eventually!

And this story is purposefully ambiguous but I meant to draw a relevant short that hasn't happened yet so I feel the need to clarify that Houston and his mother didn't die. I mean it never was even supposed to be a spoiler!
