it occurred to me about two hours ago that there’s no way I’m making tonight’s deadline, so in the tradition of great sequential artists everywhere, I offer cheesecake instead.

The classic definition of cheesecake involves pin-up girls, but I’m right out. What I do have is pictures of the best looking man I know, and the inspiration for Cole, Lila’s husband, who’s actually going to appear in an upcoming strip after a long hiatus. So today, the cheesecake is for the ladies.

So that I can get a bit of a head start on the buffer again, we’ll see more cheesecake shortly…. but probably not of Cole.

Update: Jzimbert informs me (rather awkwardly, I might add) that the technical term for male cheesecake is beefcake. But that sounds too much like meatloaf to me, so I’m sticking with “male cheesecake” for now.
