EDIT: in case you missed it, the original "filler strip" for April 1st, 2008 is thumbnailed here... I went seven years, nine months, and twenty-one days without missing a strip. That's not such a bad run. But I guess with all the convention travel, I neglected to finish the work on today's installment. I've forgotten to upload before, but until now I've not forgotten to color. I would have caught that if I hadn't been so very, very tired all day. Anyway, I'm still half-asleep, but I figure you fine folks will forgive an indulgence. I threw together a placeholder image and put it up (there's a first time for everything) and I'm headed for bed. Please be patient, you'll get the April 1st installment soon enough. In fact, it's probably already there. I mean, by the time you've finished reading this blog post, the animation should have cycled through to your precious Schlock Fix. Happy All Fools' Day.
