Author commentary

Veronica: Ah, The Burden of Parenthood. This was one of my most popular chapters back in the day so I decided to redraw it in 2010 when we were preparing our first book, Volume One. Now it’s been edited again to fit cleanly in the Omnibus! So many evolutions.. I swear this Omnibus project is the last of them!

See, when you get married, you become immune to disease and pregnancy. It’s the ultimate contraceptive!

Final panel makes me laugh so much, Yashy completely doesn’t understand (as she shouldn’t, honestly)

Oliver: Damn. Definitely don’t get gonorrhea.

These proper-panelled chapters were harmonised with the grid ones, using this new scheme! It’s a little different. We also touched it up with distinct border colours and a distinct foreground and background. The whole point was to make the archive a lot more stylistically coherent — I sure hope it worked!
