Okay, this … THIS … is one of the better comics I ever produced (in my opinion).
Really, looking back, I think one of the main things that kept me from taking up smoking was that my mother and her friends smoked. They made it look anything but cool.
When other teenaged guys thought of smoking they thought of … I dunno … poker games, cigars, and cool Zippo lighters. I thought of home permanents, ultra slim cigarettes, and cheap plastic disposable lighters with the owner’s zodiac sign silkscreened on the side in one color of ink.
Note from Missy: Font change! I used to make new handwriting fonts every year or two. I think this one ended up being the BI font for the rest of the run.
