Worked through the heat and my cold on my mathematics blog, and even got a post with some non-comics stuff in there. If you missed it on your RSS feed, please, give this a fresh try:

And lastly, What's Going On In The Phantom (Weekdays)? Is Your Podcast's Mattress Advertiser Grenade-Proof? April - June 2018. It's been exciting stuff, although not a dense plot. Now let's check in on Casino Pier and its environment.

Peering up at Hydrus's main drop, and a view of the car glaring back at us.

Parking lot attendant using some of the slack time to do his saxophone practice. We could hear him from across the street and a good thirty feet or so up on the miniature golf course.
