★ Notes on Year 4, Comic 1  - Wake-Up Call â˜…



Welcome to Check Please: Year Four!


☆ ☆ ☆ NOTES ☆ ☆ ☆ 

✓ So, a short blog for a short comic! Y'all know I'm big on circular storytelling and bringing things way back--so why not bring things all the way back? To Bitty's freshman year. Three years ago. Eric Bittle--current captain of SMH--couldn't even get through a single practice without ending up curled into a ball. And you wonder, how many times has Bitty had dreams like this? You know we wstill have no idea why this kid hates checking so much...


✓ WAIT. What time is it? Is this why Jack and Bitty are late to the presser that's about to happen in 3.26?? Jack and Bitty!! ARe very tired!! Leave them alone!!


✓ Wow your art has CHANGED. 2013 vs 2018. YUP.


☆ Next UP. What happened last night? 4.2 - "24 Hour Celly". It drops 6/18.



☆ ☆ ☆ NEWS ☆ ☆ ☆


☆ There is...so much news. My gosh. Please bear with me.


☆ Updates??? Check Please will update on Mondays! Sometime in July I'll take another break,  and we'll probably have hiatuses here and there throughout the year. But! Expect weekly updates for the next few comics! And ask-a-wellies. And extras. Hoorah!
