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.

When last we updated the news, we mentioned Life Things. What did we mean by that?

Mainly, we moved! We're now in a slightly different part of Southern California. Not the most dramatic change-up (like moving from Hippedown to Sherup, for instance), but buying a house, packing, moving, and unpacking has taken up a whole lot of our time lately. There is no "done and settled down". Things are a whole lot more habitable than they were on day one, but there's still so much to do. So if we've been a little behind on site maintenance, that's why. (Why haven't we had more comics about Brisbane and Kimberly moving? Because we like our characters. Really. And they have a pre-furnished rental. And they had a lot more hired help than we did.)

Also, we've got a new PO Box - the new address is:
Terrence and Isabel Marks
PO Box 2111
San Bernardino, CA 92406

The old PO Box will be operable at least through the end of the year.

Additionally, we've got some changes to NamirDeiter.net and our Patreon - if you support the comic through one, you get access to the other! Why? Because we think it's awesome when people support the comic and want everyone to have cool bonus stuff. So if you support us through Patreon, we have set you up with a NamirDeiter.net account. And if you support us through NamirDeiter.net, there's now a Patreon Sketches tab, with all our comics-in-progress sketches from Patreon! And NamirDeiter.net donors can request we draw them a thing! (One-character black and white sketch. Work-safe. Has to be either your character or one of mine. I have the right to veto).

So we're here! We're a bit more settled in than we were yesterday! And comics!

We've got some Life Things coming up in the near future. Good things. But Life Things take up time. So we're going to have a week of Nicole and Derek Asks coming up. Please send in your questions. Especially anything related to the last few chapters.
06.30.2017 - Terrence Marks:
We have a Patreon! Gets you access to in-progress sketches of the comic and a digital sketch from Isabel! Today is the last day to sign up to get your sketch in July! (rules: black and white. One character - yours or ours. Safe for work. And she reserves the right to veto if it worries her.
This is separate from NamirDeiter.net, which has daily sketches, comic commentary, hundreds of bonus comics, free comic books, and more.
So, today's image? It's the first draft of the cover of Namir Deiter Year 3, Have Kitten, Will Travel. We never ended up making the book, for a few reasons - including that most of the high resolution files had been lost over the years. But we were going
06.26.2017 - Terrence Marks:
Happy 500th comic, everyone! We almost had a false alarm last week, but we moved a few sketches over to the sketch archive. I'm really happy with what we've done with the comic so far and I look forward to the next 500 comics. We hope you've liked it so far and thank you for reading!

Also, Thomas Dye, who does Newshounds drew us Brisbane and Kimberly! Newshounds was one of my favorite comics back when I started doing webcomics, and it still is. If you're not reading it, you should be.

06.19.2017 - Terrence Marks:
We've got a Patreon!

Basically, we're trying a few things out. It's separate from NamirDeiter.net. Right now it's running in-progress sketches of the comics (which will be posted when the comics are being worked on). Also, donors will get one sketch request a month!

Rules: Safe for work. Your character or mine. Black and white. We reserve the right to veto. You get your sketch after Patreon payment goes through, so sign up now to get in for July!

Also, Adult Supervision Required got a bit of a redesign!
