Years ago, George was turned back into a living person and the dynamic of the comic changed. John gained a bit of confidence and George lost his. Zoey dumped George and John starting dating Lyn. It's all back in the archive.
I wanted to get back to an old style of writing a ZR strip where it's just John and George talking and the two's friendship was the whole lynchpin of the scenario. It's also a good little strip to let other cast members kind of catch up to what's going on.
