Judge Parker Process
A little JP process from an upcoming Sunday Strip. I changed the date to 7-12 on the final as I made that mistake finishing this Sunday up in the wee hours of Thursday night. We've had a few weeks away from the Driver/Spencer road trip and been concentrating on Needy and her new business venture and a possible new romance interest--which might complicate an old romance interest. What will the outcome be? In the grand tradition of the Soap Strips tune in and see via your paper, or if you must, on Comics Kingdom. This gave me an opportunity to add some dramatic blacks to this week's strip. In July you can see it in color and read whats going down with Mark, Needy's old flame.
