A partial interpretation of facial expressions seen in this update
When Suzanne hugs Jack so hard his back cracks: Jack: I’m flattered and scared and loved and in pain Bitty: DISAPPROVAL
When Jack meets Coach for the first time as Bitty’s boyfriend Bitty: Carefully monitoring his mother’s actions, suspicious Suzanne: Concerned that Jack feels welcomed!! And loved!! And unmicroaggressed!! Coach: saw Jack’s game and is telling Jack that he saw his game Jack: what’s bitty’s dad’s name again? try calling him all of them
Jack, while watching Bitty and his mom fight about whether or not Jack will sleep in Bitty’s room Jack: hahaha maybe i got hit with a puck and am actually passed out at center ice in Arizona
“Involved.” Bitty: –involved??? Involvement?! How could she know anything about involvement?! I’ve never been involved in my life!! And if I were they’re MY INVOLVEMENTS. MINE AND JACK’S!! SEX?? WHY on EARTH is my mother talking about my private fornication in front of my EXTREMELY POLITE BOYFRIEND. WHO TOLD HER WE WERE INVOLVED Jack: maybe i got hit with two pucks
? Hi. Hello! I love comics because only in this sacred medium can one capture the most embarrassing moments with line and color. Behold, art.
Pictured above: my first sketch of Suzanne jumping in between Jack and Coach’s handshake.
I’ve been wanting to write this meet-the-parents nonsense for years and I’m SO HAPPY I finally get to share this comic. HERE IT IS….THE CHAOS OF THE BITTLES. And “Christmas in Madison” has two more parts. Can Bitty survive his mother’s lapse in sensibility? Can Jack survive Rick Bittle’s fatherly trials???
Chirpbook? - If you haven't noticed, @omgcheckplease has been tweeting again recently. All the images that Bitty is tweeting are going into a project I'm calling the Chirpbook. This book will take 900 of Bitty's best tweets and shall include brand new images. I'M VERY HYPED FOR THIS PROJECT.

Check, Please! might be completed, but I've got two books coming out in 2024!
BUNT! is the story of art students who must win one game of softball in order to get athletic scholarships. It is illustrated by the incredible Mad Rupert and will hit bookshops in February of 2024.
BARDA is the story of a warrior who serves an evil tyrant, who falls in love with a prisoner she was ordered to torture. It will be available for pre-order this fall and hits bookshops in the summer of 2024.
Check, Please! is a comic about hockey, queer romance, and the frequent baking of pies. In 2020, I posted the last chapter of this comic to very website! If you're new, you can read from the beginning starting here. Or you can buy the book here.
