A 'Toby & Sara' B-side: Creme Brulee

My longer comic narrative 'The Ballad of Toby & Sara' has taken a back seat due to some recent projects, namely 'Supernova Lullaby.' I wish it wasn't the case, I wish I had the time to work on them side by side, but it just hasn't worked out that way. However, I recently completed a B-side for the story, a comic that takes place a couple years prior to the beginning of the series, and which fills in some of the blanks for the heroine Sara Reynolds. You can read it online for FREE at my website, just click on the image below.
The location of the comic, Delice Bakery in Omaha, Nebraska, actually closed its doors in the Old Market earlier this summer. It was a great place, I remember getting delicious sandwiches there when I worked at a gallery in downtown. I never expected it to close, in many ways it felt like a cornerstone of the neighborhood. So, I guess this comic is a tribute to it, even though that wasn't my intention when I started it...

Great pacing, I like the format of the comic.

I'm so sad about Delice! Boo. One of my favorite cafes ever.

Love the work, tho. Where are you hanging these days?
