First and foremost, yes, I am aware that the comments section at 1990somethingcomic.com/ is spazzing out something fierce right now. I've tried to fix it from my dashboard, but everything seems to be working just fine on my end - it appears to be a bug that happened in WordPress's latest update that I just have to wait for them to fix. But even if you can't see the comments, they are still being posted and I can still see them in my dashboard, which means they will appear eventually once WordPress gets its shit together, so by all means, keep leaving feedback. I've been waiting two years to do this week's story and I know my readers have been eagerly anticipating it - I definitely wanna hear what you think.

Second, as a follow up to my last journal, I've decided to continue drawing Nineteen-Ninety-Something into the new year after all. After doing that Off the Deep End test page, I finally realized something - Off the Deep End may be fun to draw, but I have a hell of a hard time writing it. A series with no antagonists, where nothing seems to go wrong for anyone, doesn't exactly make for gripping drama. Just because it's set in the present doesn't mean people looking for a way to deal with today's problems are going to relate to it. But I've been writing the events of Nineteen-Ninety-Something to be pretty strongly allegorical to a lot of today's hot-button issues - the generation gap, racial tension, what constitutes sexual harassment, and so on. Those things will never go away, sad to say - they happened in 1991 and they're still happening now. But at least I can do stories that tackle these subjects head-on and hopefully give people a bit of help in dealing with them.

So, strap in, folks, because regardless of what 2017 may bring, 1992 is going to be a hell of a ride. If you thought Lindsay's story arc was crazy before, believe it or not, it's just getting started - and we're gonna take a long hard look at her equally crazy family this year too. Tina's getting an arc this year as well, where she takes a vocal stand against sexual content in the media and we finally learn what's got her so uptight about everything her kids do. You can expect more awkward Westworld shows as grunge continues to spill into the mainstream, a revealing look into the high school days of Aaron's macho brute of a father, and next Christmas, Jocelyn's family will be getting a surprise visitor who I sincerely hope people will enjoy meeting. We got a lot to look forward to - let's do it!

No problem!, I heard they were bringing it back with new episodes. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one in the fandom.

SketchDump16 - We've Got Bubbles, Yes We Do by jbwarner86

Although this drawing is explicitly non-canonical (you can tell because she's smiling). In-universe, Lindsay is so repulsed by the idea of getting her hair wet that she's probably never put her head underwater in her entire life. Hell, I'm not even sure if she knows how to swim.
