This strip was a bigger challenge than I thought it would be. I knew I wanted a Mario themed comic, but I had no idea how I was going to approach it. I went through multiple variations before finally settling on the final product. At one point I even had a tragic tale of how Britney’s pet turtle was ran over in the driveway as a kid by her father, and she was told it was actually mustached man dressed in red. It just didn’t seem to work though. Anyways, I don’t think I can look at Britney quite the same way again.
