I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that this is not a video game comic. This is a comic about subterranean troublemakers. Can we help it if they, on occasion, interact with other denizens of the deep?

But really, we have both been enjoying the new Gears of War 2 to an unnatural degree. It's worthwhile. Which is more than I can say for many games that make it to the shelves of GameStop and EB.

We have noticed a steady, if not egregious, uptick in the readership of this comic. That's fantastic, and we appreciate any and all help that you (yes, you) can provide in spreading the word about this strip.

It's also incredibly important that you guys (or gals) start leaving feedback. We can't ever hope to be better if you don't tell us what we're doing wrong.

And, in case anyone asks, OBAMA 2012!
