I’ve been working on a new comic. It’s called “Salad Days” and these two panels are a sneak peek from Chapter 1. If you’re familiar with Apple at all, then you know he’s always searching for (and eluded by) greater meaning and companionship–I’m hoping he can finally get in on some of that in this story! It’s a bit of a departure from previous Fruit Pals episodes, as Apple quits his office job in the first few pages and the bulk of it centers around his new volunteer position with gorillas. I am really excited to do a story with gorillas, by the way (if you haven’t watched Koko: A Talking Gorilla, then you don’t know what it is to be alive and part of the world). There is still a lot of work to do, but ultimately “Salad Days” is going to be in the neighborhood of 100 pages or so, with the release of Chapters 1 and 2 coinciding with the Stumptown Comics Fest in April. Mrk yr clndrs.
