Hello again! If I have any readers left after my 6-month hiatus, you have hopefully been looking forward to the return of Cooties, and the exciting conclusion of “Infestation”! I had originally planned to take a longer hiatus to completely finish writing, drawing and coloring each remaining strip in my first chapter, but I had too many requests to continue the story that I just couldn’t ignore them. Therefore, Cooties will be a weekly strip, updating every Monday, until I have a buffer large enough to go daily for the rest of “Infestation”. After 3½ years, all of you who have stuck with me deserve the big payoff, so I will do my best to deliver. Be here every Monday for the ninja-y, superhero-y, alien-y goodness of Cooties!
