So Leah's taking over the strip, I'm retiring TODAY! (HA! Kidding!)
Letâs all hear it for this weekâs guest artist Leah Abrams!
Anywho Leah volunteered to step up with filling in for me this week as long as I helped with the writing. I know she also hoped to have this comic inked but she ran out of time. I sort-a sprung it on her last minute and she has lots of school work.
The current plan is to start the next Chapter (entitled "Six Months Later...") on Monday even though I have grouped this Guest Artist Week with that next Chapter. More news as we go!
Big thanks to Leah who muscled through severe allergy attacks and tons of homework to do this week for me!
Ref: when we last saw Gwynn's Penthouse Suite...
So I put Aylee in a Sia wig because it made my wife laugh (and it covers her face). I'm not sure exactly how much of my audience can readily identify a Sia wig (maybe a lot? maybe a few?) but now I'm disturbed by how much Aylee looks like Agent N'aaaw. Thus Sia looks like Agent N'aaaw. I'm gonna have to think on that...
balthazar, I totally gave Gwynn rhinestone "beauty marks".
This is entirely accurately how you play craps! Except on Tuesdays. And non-Tuesday days.
Happy Memorial Day! Hope you find the time to remember the meaning of the day.

Full disclosure: I’m a happy Pokemon Go player and, although tempted, have yet to run in to traffic. In Pokemon and all things, enjoy what you like; assess the risks, play responsibly.
Ref: "Sneaking through Europe".
Are Peirce and Lance brothers? Are they related to Lupae Indahed? is "Indahed" a common last name in the Sluggyverse? I'm thinking the later.
ALSO some ref links for the person in the last panel tomorrow!
Oasis Ref: It's complicated. First seen.
Last seen conscious (bROKEN). Last seen alive (in Hereti-Corp Custody). Last seen dead (by the Strawman's hand). News of 'Oasis resurfacing'.
We also saw an alternate version of Oasis in 4U City, going by the name Harbinger.
Harbinger: First Seen. Last seen alive. Last seen dead (bottom of panel 2).
Hope I didn't miss anything! Is Harbinger important to this story? Probably not. But she's COOL!

Currently any animated gif comics have not been
resized for the new archive due to it breaking the animation.
I can hardly believe I'm only going to be doing one more of these! But this is fitting for the next-to-last one.
It's the "Sluggy Freelance's 19th Anniversary" Animated Strip!
Sorry for the late uber-rare emergency filler art thingy today. Rescripting is running too late. I really need to make sure the scripts are well planned for the next week or two! You could just pretend I took Labor Day off early... ?
