In an ideal world, I’d have done this as a Friday strip to leave you guys hanging for the weekend… But I didn’t plan the arc around cliffhangers so you get it on a Monday instead.

I wanted this strip to be very, very blue… I even thought about having it be only shades of blue, but it might have been too much so I pulled back. I’m a total color theory dork and sometimes it gets the best of me.

I retooled George’s goatee a little. One of my favorite features on George is his shovel shaped jawline. I felt that the previous version of his chin scruff detracted too much from that so I went¬† back in and changed it up a bit. I think I’m happier with it now.

And no, I’m not going to go into what the phone call is referring to. I’m sure a lot of you can figure it out based on the clues… but you’ll have to suffer until Wednesday or so.
