This week's strip features an old favorite who doesn't get nearly as much cartoon time as he probably deserves! Those who don't personally know Steve might be interested to learn that he was actually one of the very first characters to grace the Ink, Paint & Tears... canvas, aside from The Muffin, of course. This manic-depressive, talking grasshopper made his comic debut in the ironically titled strip, The Grasshopper, way back in 2002 and these days makes guest appearances here and there pretty much whenever Lori gets tired of drawing actual people. Nonetheless, fans of the articulate arthropod will be delighted to hear that Steve has been scheduled for a variety of perspective-type comics throughout 2006, the first of which being the weekly strip that we've prepared for you here today.
And of course, I must remind everyone that there's still time to get your pre-orders in for the brand-new Ink, Paint & Tears... 2006 Wall Calendar - click here to read last week's news post for more details. All the cool kids will be sporting these in their lockers, cubicles, and other miscellaneous places of work and leisure, so shoot us an e-mail now to reserve yours today with great savings to boot!
Play safe, stay cool, and we'll all meet back here next week...
