Occasionally, Jeremy will provide some commentary or explanation about the characters appearing in the strip. When available, I'll include them here.
"It’s Kagami! Hooray! Kagami started out as a one-joke character, but I always liked her positivity. That’s probably because I’m a reformed pessimist, and I see a lot of myself in her. I think she has a lot of potential, and so I’ll be developing her quite a bit this year. Her upbeat nature makes her a good foil for my grumpy daddy-bear, Rorik. This strip also serves as my official attempt at rehabilitating Cinnamon. Formerly a joke character who appeared as the punchline of the 11/17/08 strip, Cinnamon’s resemblance to Dill now has a darned good excuse: she’s family! She’s not dating Kagami anymore, but she can still show up in the strip now and then. The bar is inspired by one I’ve been going to with my kick-ass boyfriend, Chris. We went there on our first date, last July 4th! Although semi-officially a lesbian bar, there are usually a handful of gay dudes there as well. It’s laid-back and a lot of fun! (“Cookie”, you know who you are.)" -- Jeremy Rizza
