Here is the strip where Coco was draining the lake.

In hindsight, I regret reading the final Harry Potter books.  I couldn’t help myself.  I was purposely trying not to read them, because I wanted to watch the movies first.  The reason being that I didn’t get to fully enjoy the Lord of the Rings trilogy because I was too busy seeing all the inconsistencies between the movie script and the actual books.

I wanted to enjoy the Harry Potter movies so I was trying to avoid reading the books and not spoil the movies.

But the Harry Potter books are too darn compelling and I couldn’t help myself.  Now I know that I’m going to regret reading them.  In hindsight, I should have avoided reading any of the books until all the movies were done since I know I have zero willpower.

In Familiar Ground news, I switched to using a metal nib dip pen and an inkwell for this strip, just trying out different drawing materials.  It takes some getting used to, but I’ll probably be experimenting further with different materials like brushes in the future.

    I love panel 2; you do a good “Pegasus in Forest”. Coco should be shouting out Toad’s name, don’t you think? Guess you never know how you will act in a crisis situation until you are in one.

    Ooh ooh! What if Toad’s hat fell off, and he landed in it? Would he be able to get out without help?

      Yeah, Coco’s not thinking too clearly and is in shock. He’s convinced that Toad’s dead and is just looking for the body now…poor Coco.

        Clear thinking doesn’t seem to be Coco’s strong suit, even outside a crisis. Too many neurons dedicated to pastries and other consumables.
