Ah, Schwartz and Galanos. Revisiting these guys is like hanging out with old friends. More than that, for me. I’m not sure if I’ve ever admitted this publicly before, but these two guys are very much different sides of my personality. That’s why writing their dialogue feels so natural to me. Schwartz’s laziness, perversion, dedication to pleasure, fierce anger at things that annoy him, frustration with authority, and somewhat cruel joy of getting a rise out of others are all totally me. But Galanos’ thoughtfulness, dedication to doing the right thing, fussiness, awkwardness and anxieties are all me, as well. These sides are very much in conflict. Galanos is very much my EGO, and Schwartz my ID. So when you read this comic, you’re basically watching me have a conversation with myself!
This comic (and the next one) have perhaps a slightly higher quotient of double entendres and raunchiness than usual, but hey, it’s been awhile. There’s a lot to get out.
One big change since I last was active with the comic – Yesterday was my first anniversary. Yup, I got married on April 1st!
