Shaenon: As these thumbnails prove, I wrote the sequence with Tip in his handsome suit early on, probably in the first year of the strip.  Originally the context was completely different, but there’s never a wrong time for a handsome suit.

Meanwhile, the Narbonic Kickstarter is approaching its first stretch goal, which will allow/force me to put out a print collection of extra Narbonic comics and stories.  If you want that to happen, tell everybody about this thing.

Channing: I’m a little sad that the story sort of organically took us away from Shaenon’s original outline, not in the least because the kiss with H.T. originally happened with a much different and better character. Yes, I’m being a tease, but my lips are sealed on this one.
