Dec. 30, 2017 — This comic was first published on May 31, 2007. Nearly eight years later and it still holds up. Nearly 25 years after my grandmother died and I still miss her.

Here it is! The long-awaited, much-touted mystery comic. It took nine months to do, but the finished story came out much better than expected thanks to two key people:
- The wife, who aided with various visual elements and let me tie up her iMac for a whole day.
- My wonderful and tolerant mother, who provided old snapshots and acted as a photo reference without asking too many questions. (And to think she was worried I was going to do something weird with those pictures.)
This comic is dedicated with a great deal of love to the memory of my grandmother — who really did die 14 years ago and whose mail still gets delivered to my house.
I miss you, Charlie. Now more than ever.
