He also acts as my editor. I rarely run a strip without checking it out with him first, as he too delights in comics and always knows where to drop a panel or add a punchline. He's a harsh critic, but it's worth it when one makes him laugh aloud. Mind you, it's a killer when he looks at me with pity, and I know he's thinking, 'That's really not funny...'

Anyway, I haven't had time to do a new C&C this week, what with working on my picture book, having a kid off school with scarlet fever, website updates, and then the Easter weekend when we saw a multitude of cousins (some of which are still quite stumpy) - so I thought this was quite appropriate.
