This is the kind of strip I’ve wanted to do for a long time — homosexual men are up to four times as likely to have depression than their heterosexual counterparts. This is something of great importance and I’ve always had trouble about how to fit it into the strip. I still haven’t, but I’m laying out the groundwork. I introduced this character a few strips back as just another depressed character because I didn’t want him to be just his sexuality, I wanted people to identify with him first. I hope I did this strip justice, it’s an important issue and I want to bring it to the forefront.
I should also mention this was my grand opportunity to import Kevin Lee from Sexy Losers as a cameo and I missed it. Damn.
