Guy in panel 2 and 3? Totally NOT Sam. I was drawing this random guy and he started looking like Sam and the more I tried to make him NOT like Sam the more Sam-like he became! Thanks self-sabotage! If not for deadlines I'd redraw.
We havent seen the Black-Ops Elves in so long there was some wondering about their relationship to Santa at this point. The last time we heard word from them it was telling Santa that theyve gone freelance (Last panel/'official report'). A line that hit the cutting room floor from the current set of comics confirm that Santa is one of their biggest clients, paying for information like everyone else.
Almost was going to save this as emergency filler but it made a nice cap to Part 1. Next week? Bun-bun!
I know it might seem lame but I found this Memorial Day filler from 2011 and decided to color it and use it, just because it made me smile. Hope it makes you smile too! Happy Memorial Day!

Currently any animated gif comics have not been
resized for the new archive due to it breaking the animation.
Big thanks to the guy from Intervention6 who, when I said the animated strip might not be too much, suggested animating black-ops celebratory throwing-dart juggling! And thanks to my daughter Leah for roughing out the juggling animation! Happy 18 years of this here nifty comic!
Info Ref: Riff experienced an alternate dystopian future stemming from “the Research and Development wars” in 4U City.
One row of comics with almost no dialogue? What was I thinking?!? I don't know, but I DO know I wasn't thinking 'cat-in-the-hat' when I was planning the color scheme for today's comic. But how can I look at that last panel and NOT think Cat-in-the-Hat?
Finished the missing establishing panel and fixed the mistake where Riff said "Mark-22". It is in fact Mark-24.
