This strip was originally published on January 22, 2013 over at

Once Harold and I realized that we couldn't keep up with the breakneck speed of Variety Smack, we took a step back and thought about what we wanted to do moving forward.

In the end we decided to reboot the strip with a new name and new comics.

And so I present to you, the first comic from the new strip called Our Adventure Continues.

The thing that I love most about this strip is that, despite the fact that Harold and I have never actually been in the same room with each other, this is pretty much how we decided back then that we were gonna do a web comic together. There was no planning, nothing was scheduled out, no outlines, we just had a very basic idea and we just ran with it.

Harold and I would come up with the ideas for the strips, I'd do most of the writing, and Harold would do the art.

I'd help with flatting and at one point I lettered the strips, but Harold did all the line work and shading and all that as well as most of the lettering.

All in all we did close to 100 strips, but then life, as often happens, closed in on us and we realized we just didn't have the time to really continue with the strip.

And, if I'm being completely honest, and I think I am, while we'd get the occasional feedback, we didn't get a lot, which makes one feel like either no one was reading them, or if they were, they weren't enjoying them.

But recently, Harold and I have been talking about the possibility of bringing the strip back, because, again, if I'm being honest, I think we both rather miss it.

In other words, if you want Harold and I to get the band back together and create more comic strip fun, please say so by leaving a comment below.
