This has been planned for a long time. It was originally scheduled for a month ago but the lead up wasn't ready for such an important event in the comic.
Originally this update was supposed to have Glenn, George, and some of the other cast... but as I was laying out the sketch it just didn't feel right. This needed to be more personal.
And for those of you who are still sad, here's Seffie:
She's currently quarantined in the bed room since she's sick. Well, all the cats are.
