This is Ray, the local smart-ass and know-it-all. This strip marks the point where every character from the banner has been introduced. I don't have any new characters in mind yet (mostly because all the simple shapes are exhausted), so from now on all interactions will be between already estabilished characters.
Also I think this is the first comic that is loosely based on continuity (from comic 3). I hope my comics are funny as standalone comics, but sometimes it's just to tempting to do some character development. So yeah, there will be some references to the earlier strips but not too many.
