Hey everyone, welcome back to another Average Joe! Today’s strip officially rounds off the last little arc and sets us up for the beginning of a new one on Wednesday; if you’re new, you can see the beginning of this latest story segment here. If you’re a regular, then I wonder if you can guess what’s about to happen (hint: is that night outside now? Perhaps a few hours have passed since this strip…)

Also, I think it needs to be acknowledged that when I began this strip, I could never have conceived how many times I’d have to draw Joe’s butt (and one where I didn’t). Or any butt¬†(and that’s only strip 9…). I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something about my sense of humour here….

¬†Also, a word to other creators out there; really think about how you’re going to set up your character’s houses when you’re making your strip! That little hallway leading from the front door to the lounge room caused me no end of grief when trying to stage the layout of today’s strip…but it allowed the perspective in panel 4 to happen, which I had a lot of fun trying to figure out so I guess it’s not all bad ;-)

That’s about it for today folks, be sure to check in again on Wednesday for the start of the next story arc!
