…still here? Okay, cool. Anyway, I thought long and hard about whether or not to re-draw this comic (teehee, long and hard). Older Moonfruit readers will remember that in the previous incarnation of the site, Darryl and Steve went from being a zany, antagonistic cartoon duo (like Tom and Jerry, Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, or the Spy Vs Spies) to being a couple. At the time, I thought it was an interesting and oddly natural next step for that sort of relationship. When we re-launched the site, I definitely wanted to get them back to that place (honestly, it’d feel like a betrayal of their characters not to)… but I couldn’t think of a new way to get them there that I liked as much as the way we did it the first time around. After much deliberation, I decided to go the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” route and just re-draw the comic that originally took them from wacky pals to lovers. Trust me, it’s just better this way… not least of all because now, their kinky waffle-iron antics have been restored to official canon.

In other news, upon revisiting this comic, I’m more proud of it than I realized. It really captures the awkwardness and confusion surrounding first-time sex, but in a bizarre and surreal way that I didn’t full appreciate before. So… way to go me, I guess.
