I'm pretty sure I've referred to Neko as my spirit animal before. At his best he's what I'm able to think like when not crippled by self-doubt, but he's also the asshole I try really hard not to be. It's a love/hate relationship, which isn't as unusual a thing to have with an aspect of your own psyche as you might think.

This whole storyline Neko's mostly been napping, playing with his toys, and bugging Alice. That really should have been the focus all along. I've always liked the idea of having a much more exciting comic happening next door, but I think we've seen enough of that comic now that it can only be improved by leaving it implicit. Fuck the monomyth, this is a comic about a cat and it's much more fun when I remember that.

Work is continuing workily, so my free time to draw is much more limited now, but if you're still here then you're probably pretty hardcore and may even be excited by a return to the somewhat laissez-faire lazy fare work ethos of the original run. I actually even have an idea for the next storyline: Alice tidies the apartment.

For those of you who like my weird flights of fancy, Yellow Sticky is updating daily. That's the single-panel comic that's literally just doodles I do at work. Several of my friends somewhat irritatingly prefer Yellow Sticky to Neko the Kitty, despite NtK being the one I pour my heart and soul into and Yellow Sticky existing literally as a by-product of my having a day job. I'm pretty sure that's just how art works.

@NtKGar: I think I agree with your assessment. I wasn't totally thrilled by the more adventurous direction things were going, but I was willing to give it a shot. That's the thing about webcomics, there's no editor, just one author taking you for a ride, and you've gotta RIDE that ride, see where it goes.

2 Cents I like both your comics, but my favourite is Neko. I like the interplay of characters, no matter what they are doing. I have never thought the comic went "too wild" as I think cats might live in a world that is, to them, that extreme at times. Neko is still my favourite because he is such a little shit. Some of my cats seem like they must think just like him.
I have been following you for a while, and I hope you find it as satisfying to produce this comic as I do to read it.
