Well, it’s been over a year since the last Java strip was published. I had pretty much abandoned the strip to focus on other projects, so why did I come back here all of a sudden without notice with a new strip? Because someone, somewhere in cyberspace, read the comic yesterday and left an encouraging comment.

Most people don’t realize this, but webcomics do not earn big bucks. There’s a reason they call us starving artists. But an ounce of encouragement from someone that likes your work is enough for us to live off of for at least a little while. So, here is a new Java strip.

And from now on, Java will not update on a regular schedule. Java will only update when someone leaves a comment to show their appreciation. Think of it as the tip jar for my ego.
