In this episode, we share our experiences with comic strips. We discuss the differences in writing, drawing, pacing, and distributing comic strips vs. comic books (or whatever you wanna call comics made up of pages!).
Shawn and Nick have even collaborated on comics strips in the past. Shawn wrote and Nick arted a seven-part series of Super Haters comic strips in 2011:

And finally, after the end theme… more Culinary Underground!
