God damn, it’s been awhile since I knocked the dust off this thing, huh?
At any rate…While comics have continued, my typically rambling commentary had to be cut down a tweak due to spending two weeks in Toronto on business. I got to tell you that from what I saw of the city and it’s people I fell in love with it. I spent a lot of my time on the Don Valley Parkway and Yonge Street in Toronto proper scouting out places and locations for use in the strip. Some of them you have already seen (the section of comic with Quinlan and Targeter riding down the highway is based off a section of the Don Valley Parkway.) And there is going to be some urban sections that will be appearing that will be based directly on the Toronto metropolitan area.
One thing I have to mention though is Fionn MacCool’s. Fionn MacCool’s is one of the best Irish Pubs that I have been in and has an excellent, courteous staff…and awesome food. Fionn’s very probably saved my sanity during some trying situations during the business aspects of my trip, and they were very helpful in providing me some info on Toronto geography that ended up being directly responsible for more than a few comics. (I even wrote the dialog for a few of them on my PDA while I was at the bar at Fionn’s )
At any rate…if you are in Toronto: GO THERE AND SPEND ALL YOUR MONEY!!!!
In other news, there are some more comics that are going to be added to the links page in the next couple of days (I’m talking to Corgan and Cortland in particular ) I am a big fan of both of these strips…and they should have been linked long ago. That will be remedied, I promise.
At any rate, nicotine, chocolate milk and bed are calling me…Night All..
