The author writes:

I probably won't mind not having to draw any more quiches for a while.

This was meant to be a quick-and-easy strip (black-and-white, line art only, cartoony, off-screen characters), because I'm working my way up to launching another comic-related project, and I have to get the time from somewhere. (You heard it here first, folks! Unless I told you about it in person some other time, in which case I guess not. More to come on that when it gets closer to being ready, but it will probably mean reducing the frequency of PoMH due to the law of Conservation of Ian's Free Time.)

Strangely, though, in spite of being supposedly quick and easy, it somehow managed to grow and fill up the time available.
