Ah, Maurice. Always downplaying the severity of the situation, while Sam expects the worst and tends to blow things out of proportion. That’s why they make such a good pair. I’m afraid, however, in this case Sam’s reaction is the correct one. White Jade isn’t somebody to mess around with and right now they’re all on her bad side.
We’ve hinted and mentioned her a time or two previously, but this is the first good look we get of Jun Yu’s mother, White Jade. Immigrating from China almost two decades ago, Bao Yu has established herself as a well-respected hero, but has earned a deserved reputation as being stern and absolutely no-nonsense when it comes to her work. Now poor Sam has some ‘splaining to do…
We wanted to do something special for our one hundredth strip, as well as pay homage to our first fallen character. We’re incredibly proud, not only of this image but of the 99 others that preceded it. Both of us wish to wholeheartedly thank everyone who’s helped us reach this milestone, first and foremost the family and friends we’ve neglected due to the time creating these strips requires. The love and understanding they’ve given us through the endless hours spent in front of a computer screen allows us to keep going. We’d also like to thank our comic cohorts at the Ohio Valley Artists League and every fellow web comic creator who’s given us feedback or a positive word of encouragement. And finally, we thank YOU, our loyal readers. Never doubt that we do it all for the Shorties!
But don’t think we’re anywhere near finished! With all the things we have planned, a hundred strips is just a drop in the bucket. You’ll definitely want to stick around to see where we go from here.
