Brisbane Adams and Kimberly Taylor had been friends, rivals and potential love interests when they worked in the Minerva Theatre. Just as they were getting close to figuring each other out, the Minerva Theater shut down. As their friends scattered to the winds, Brisbane - now jobless and homeless - was left to fend for himself. The only person he could turn to was his friend, rival and potential love interest, Kimberly Taylor.

The two of them faced the world, both its victories and defeats, together... and cautiously waited to see who would be the one to make the first move - who would say it first...

You Say it First is the sequel to Unlike Minerva. You could start there if you're a completist. Or we've got a nice jumping-on point about halfway in, if you're in a hurry.

It ran from 2004 and concluded in 2013. We recommend starting at the beginning.

Check it out! We've got an intro video now, thanks to the hard work of our friend Eric Pearson. If someone asks you what the deal is with this Nicole and Derek comic you keep telling them about, show them this.
05.06.2018 - Terrence Marks:
Isabel is taking a personal week. We've got sketches for you, and we hope you enjoy them! The storyline will resume Monday.
04.21.2018 - Terrence Marks:
Good news! No jury duty.
04.16.2018 - Terrence Marks:
Isabel (probably) has jury duty next week. So we're not sure what this week's update schedule is going to be.
It's funny. I've never been called in for jury duty. I've got a day job that pays me when I'm a juror. Isabel has been called in three times so far. We both agree that this is highly unfair. They've changed the system since last time and we're still not sure if we like it. Used to be, you'd call in every day for a week - maybe you went in, maybe you didn't. Now, you only have to call in on one day, but you're more likely to be called in.

So we've got a week of stressful uncertainty and possibly making life-altering decisions for a complete stranger.

We'll try to keep comics updated, but we'll see what happens.

04.10.2018 - Terrence Marks:
You may have seen #AdventureApril hashtag over on Twitter, Tumblr, and wherever else the cool kids hang out online these days. There's a bunch of prompts and you draw a thing each day and at the end, you've got a story or a framework or a bunch of cool drawings.
We're not doing it but our friend Julie Miyamoto is, and has featured a variety of characters from favorite online comics.
Shelby, Kimberly, and Blue have appeared, and we're glad to see them out adventuring (and hope you check it out as well)!
