It goes without saying that Cinthia didn't marry me because of any kind of money, not present or future. We were just talking today in bed after waking up that we've been together for around half of our lives (a bit less for her, a bit more for me); and we've never been apart for more than three weeks. Even during the three weeks I was in Australia, we spoke every day. At the risk of getting sappy... well, who am I fooling? That ship has sailed! She completes me, she supports me in everything I do, and she is the mother of my son. I couldn't have asked for a better wife.

This week's song is something very nerdy, from Weird al Yankovic's 2014 album "Mandatory Fun", I give you "Word Crimes":

My Life Without A Jetpack - House Of Horrors.

Just realized I chose two 1993 stories two strips in a row. Well, what are you gonna do? Anyway, I hope everybody has a happy halloween next week... I can't go into very scary things, and I sincerely hope that vampire guy is not walking around with a limp because of me. In any case, the costumes weren't half as good as what Taibox drew... but it still scared me shitless.

Music this week is from Entombed's 1993 album "Wolverine Blues", and it's called "Out Of Hand":

We're back, I swear we're back! Twice a month, every two weeks, we'll have your Jetpack here. Please believe us! This story is from the time I was a good little Catholic, and went to mass every Sunday morning, and then afterwards to a youth group there. It was a good time of my life, even though I ended up deciding my spirituality was not in line with the Church's, and eventually, I became an agnostic. On another note, I miss that Nightcrawler shirt

This week's song is "Asshole", from Dennis Leary 1993 album "No Cure For Cancer":

We're sorry, we didn't keep up with the bi-weekly promised schedule. We're shooting to do so again, but now it's time for Montevideo Comics, Uruguay's largest convention, so that means we get another Jetpack Convention Special! (It's still special even if we don't have regular strips, I tell you.) This time, the guest art is by the wonderful Dee Fish, creator of Finding Dee and Dandy & Company. Great strips, be sure to check them out.

Music this week is this amazing cover of The Imperial March by Celldweller:

As we promised, here we are again with our strip. From now on, we'll try to release a new one every other week. It was my birthday this week, and here's one of my worst public embarassments. Of course, you've seen my previous adventures in rap, and though those were not public, they were equally as sad. The good thing is that today I no longer suffer from stage fright (or I can cope with it), but I haven't tried to rap in front of people again either. And I don't think it'll ever happen, outside of karaoke.

This week's song is Lenny Kravitz doing "Dig In", from his 2001 album "Lenny":
