It’s 2017, so I thought it was time to make a change. I never really had any kind of name or branding for my comic strips, just referring to them as “comic strips.” But I’ve decided they’re no longer just generic comic strips. From this point forward, they will be known as…

I wanted to do something special for such an important milestone, so I drew a sequel to one of my first comics ever — Hammer: King of the Metal Tools, a thrilling, organized crime drama set in a world where people are tools and, instead of flesh, their skin is made out of metal, like tools are. The first comic came out in 1999. I’d always intended it to be a series, but I got distracted.

Will Wrench ever forgive her husband for bringing this chaos into their home? All these questions and more may be answered in the next episode of Hammer: King of the Metal Tools, tentatively scheduled for release in 2034.
