As a cartoonist-by-the-seat-of-my-pants, I kind of like making you look a little more closely at what it going on. The gaps and pauses in-between the panels are thusly also important -- even if that does make the visual work just a wee bit harder. Stay clear of the marmots. Shady characters!

For sure one of those ideas that was hard to communicate in comic form, but we make our own fun here at Harts Pass Comics, so we expect you to work at it a little bit as well :) Cheers!

Dear parents,
Occasionally faced with impossible questions... sometime we punt! In a nutshell welcoming both the start of a new school year AND the start of the fall football season. Go Vikings!

Thor's a pretty basic critter when you get right down to it. Eat, sleep, freak out over the marmots etc. But still... he'll take a creative risk now and then and might discover something new :)

Worlds collide! Ongoing wildfire stories and wolverine research/recovery/protection efforts find common ground in this week's strip. Heartbreaking -- but uplifting in its thus far positive progress -- is the rescue effort involving Cinder, a 35lb female black bear who was badly burned in the Carleton Complex fire. She looks pretty good in the photo below, and clearly shows a little spunk in the strip.

In other news, the Fed has reversed its earlier track and decided that the wolverines and their demonstrable (but supposedly hypothetical) reliance on late season snowpack for denning and rearing of kits do not warrant endangered species protection. I'm with Cinder on this one. Uncertainty my butt!

8.6.14 -- Kit Courageous!

Many thanks across our Valley and around the west right now for all of the heroes that put themselves on the front lines of fires and rescue efforts time and time again. And thank you as well to all of you brave kids out there who are trying to make sense of distracted parents and a situation that definitely feels a little out of wack.

"Kit Courageous" and your continued bravery go a long way -- but (as Kit imagines it) some Super Soaker 6000 super powers wouldn't hurt a thing at this point either - with modulated nozzle pressure and advanced dispersal technology to reduce flash flooding impact of course!

Steady as she goes. It will be OK.
