Thank you for all the comments on the style experimentation, gang. As a reminder, the regular black outlines will return to the strip’s art style on Thursday’s update. I placed Todd and Jessie in black borders to help them stand out from the background a little, based on reader feedback. I thought about re-doing outlines for them, but I don’t wanna fall behind on strip production more than I already have this semester, so I hope this is a workable compromise solution for the blobby low-contrast problem. Thank you for your patience!

I mentioned earlier that this chapter is an excuse for me to do some worldbuilding, and Amishtown is part of that. It is one of Calumet City, WI’s big tourist attractions: an amish-themed amusement/water park located in the heart of the city. No visit to Calumet City is complete without a ride on the Barnraiser, a rollercoaster that reaches speeds exceeding 100mph and spans the perimeter of the entire park.

Today's edition of the Secret Commentary is empty, because Dave failed to come up with something for it.
