Happy OCTOBEAR.  It’s so good to be back.  I have to admit, life has changed a lot since I started this comic just over a year ago.  I am a little ashamed I haven’t gotten more pages done, but I am very proud of the pages so far.  As far as art goes this my favorite work of my own so far, and the color work Noah has brought to the table (with the help of Matthew and John) has just made it amazing.  I’m excited to at least get back on the weekly update schedule.

Well, for months now, that bear in the street has been perpetually running at Joel and the gang.  All this time, that bear has had a secret.  It’s the first living mutant bear encounter!  I guess it’s sort of like a sugar glider.  Maybe since it’s a bear it could be called a honey glider.  If anyone has a clever name for the flying squirrel bear, let me know.  Skin flap bear?  I don’t know.

That’s all for now.  It’s good to be back.  Thanks for being such a patient and understanding group of readers.
