05.28.2013 - Terrence Marks: Thank you for your patience, everybody! We've got a new nephew! He's healthy. He's about five days old now. We're sorry about the delay, but as you know, babies do not observe anyone's schedule. We hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend.
03.25.2013 - Terrence Marks: Isabel contributed art to Sunday's Precocious! Go check it out! Or, better yet, read that storyline from the beginning.
You Say it First got reviewed over at Fanboy Comics! They had some nice things to say about the comics, and you should go read it!
03.17.2013 - Terrence Marks: Back when You Say it First was ending, we had a lot going on. Two of the comics got posted in black and white. We don't like doing that, but sometimes it's a choice between black and white now or colored much later. The comics are now colored. You can see them here and here.
03.11.2013 - Terrence Marks: Yes, you heard right. Namir Deiter and Wonderkittens are updating Monday through Friday this week. We don't know how many weeks she can keep it going for, but enjoy the extra comics!
02.26.2013 - Terrence Marks: We've been back a few weeks and you're all asking, what happened on our trip that we can relate to the comics?
No, really. You're all asking that.
We had a layover in Phoenix. In addition to the usual overpriced snacks, and beverages they had a small section for local flavors. In Phoenix, this means Cactus Candy.
I had to get it. Not to eat it. I'm kind of afraid of it, to be honest. Back when I mentioned cactus candy in You Say it First, I had no idea that such things existed. I had just been listening to a lot of Jacques Dutronc and the idea of cactus flavorant being surprisingly popular amused me.
I was going to joke about how they got the idea from me, but according to the copyright date on the box, this stuff has been around since before I was born.
So, how are they? A lot like lemon gumdrops, except with a bit more lemon and a little less gummyness. Cactus juice is the sixth thing on the ingredient list. I'm going to assume that the cactus-flavored jellybeans had a lot more cactus flavor to them.
02.06.2012 - Terrence Marks: We're back. What have we been up to? Weddings. Isabel's sister got married, and my brother got married.
Firstly, no. Not to each other. We were involved in two weddings - seven days and three thousand miles apart.
Secondly, we're sorry that we didn't have a chance to work ahead; we spent the previous month preparing for the weddings and generally being of assistance. There was more work to be done than we had anticipated. The good news is that everything went well. I have a new sister-in-law. She has a new brother-in-law. We wish them the best, of course.
We've had a long day. We're still operating on Eastern time. So now we sleep.
01.25.2012 - Terrence Marks: The final You Say it First is now up.
When we started, Brisbane and Kimberly were single. They were unemployed. And one of them was kinda homeless. Now, they're married. They run a medium-sized company. And Kimberly moved from a one-bedroom apartment to a two-bedroom apartment. I think they've earned every bit of that over the last nine years.
It's been a lot of work getting them from here to there, but it's been a lot of fun too. Isabel and I are glad we could do it, and we're glad you came along. We want to thank everybody who reads the comic and everybody who supported the comic. We're sad that it's over, but more than that, we're proud that we were able to see the story through to the end.
