Comics will return. How do I know (other than the obvious fact that I have the uncanny ability to read my own mind)?
Simple. More and more recently I find myself in the middle of a conversation, and I find myself saying, "You know, that reminds me of a comic I did..." That's powerful stuff. (You should try finding yourself twice in a single sentence sometime.) I've commented before how much I miss doing comics when I'm not doing them (like now), but when they pervade my every day thinking, then it's obvious they're more a part of me than I'd imagined.
Coupled with that kind of inevitability, I have to start up again. And since for some inexplicable reason I find myself (again!) tending to (re)start comics on the 10th of any given month, look for them the Monday after next.
(By the way, I like parentheses, too!)
