A couple years ago Howard linked to a strip in which Sandy was taking a break by reading Schlock Mercenary on her PC at the shop. I figured anybody who knew Schlock well enough to appropriate a strip for his own art had to have something going for him, so I kept reading. Haven't regretted it a bit.
I've never played paintball, much as I wanted to. But when I was fit enough to attempt it I couldn't afford the gear (there were no fields or rentals in my area) and by the time I could afford it I was too out of shape to play anything other than as a bunker.
