Hey everyone; look! It’s an Average Joe!!

I had planned to take another week or two to continue making a buffer and scaling back the posts to once a week, but things are going pretty well with the new baby at the moment, so I’m going to (dangerously) try and keep up a more regular update schedule for the next few weeks again, and see if we can’t keep it up for the foreseeable future! :-)

So, today we’re back to finding out what happened to Agent 42 between the events of Strip #150 and #151! This is a little bit of an experiment for me; I feel as though the way I began Average Joe (as a flashback from a not-yet-reached future time) was carried off a little unsatisfactorily, so I’m having another shot at this mode of storytelling; don’t worry, this story arc will be a lot shorter than the comic to date! ;-)

Personally, I am a real fan of this mode of storytelling and love seeing it used in other media, so I’m looking forward to getting my chops around it a little better with this attempt. Hopefully you’ll find the coming events, and the events following it (which may or may not lead into the events of this strip ;-) ) as interesting and as fun as I did when plotting them!

So, with no further ado I present to you the continuing adventures of (Average) Joe Smith, and I look forward to seeing you back here on Wednesday for the beginning of the next chapter! (please God, let little Archer continue to sleep like the baby from the proverb!)

Catch you then, Averaginos!
