This was my first real attempt to draw a comic for the Herald after a rushed salute to Room Draw '07. The sagely Dan offered me advice on how to come up with material for the Herald and suggested utilizing wordplay. So coupled with my love of puns, I went with this "premiere" for the Herald.

I regret that there were a couple of minor oversights.

Easter Eggs: "Yale" is etched into the sidewalk cracks of the bottom panel.

I had a lot of fun taking advantage of the spacious single panel format the Herald boasts, and I can't wait to get back. In fact, I feel torn about either doing a regular strip, like I've always wanted, or taking advantage of all this space as a single panel. I'd really like to do both, but I'm not sure that would work out. Maybe the strip in the YDN, and the panel in the Herald next year. But we'll see.

In the end, I feel like I owe my loyalties to the Herald though because I love underdogs.
