I was probably beginning to chafe a little under the restrictions of a School Day Only publication schedule, which is why I made these “____ at home for Christmas” strips.  They were the first comics I drew to be published only online, as the student newspaper didn’t print during winter break.  I probably wished I could show these characters at home so we could get to know them a little better.

Joyce’s house is pretty big.  Her parents are pretty well off.  But then, they’ve got six kids, and everyone’s apparently fed, so.

(The first peek at Joyce’s brothers in the picture frame in the bottom left corner of the last panel.  I’d… tag them, but I’d have to come up with their names, and I’m lazy right now.  They all start with “J,” if I recall my original intentions.)
