Today’s mega-sized guest comic–and the last of the 2010 “Guest-a-Versary” strips–comes from Adrean Clark. Adrean is the former creator of the Comics Bento site, and now posts her comics at her blog www.adreanaline.com/blog, including the excellent story currently running: 8 Ways to Be Deaf. Adrean’s art and writing has a clear and fun tone I really enjoy, and I absolutely love the new perspective on Colin and Arisa that she’s opened up in this guest piece. Having worked with a deaf colleague in the past, and knowing that my wife’s cousin is also hearing impaired, I find a special relevance in Adrean’s comic. And get a load of not just the Japanese text in this piece, but the Japanese Sign Language, too! Thanks, Adrean, for going above and beyond with this strip!

And one more thank you to everyone who sent me a guest strip, everyone who read them, and all of you who visit my site and enjoy Odori Park–I’m eternally grateful!

New strips from my pen start on Monday ;)

    I think this is true for everyone, myself included.

    Chris, I’m looking forward to your new comics on Monday!

    So cool! Wish I knew how to say ‘very nicely done’ in JSL! :)

    I really dig this one. It was informative as well as entertaining. Nice job all the way round!

    Interesting, I figured ASL and JSL would be the same. Who knew. Well obviously alot of people. Nice

    Thanks all :D

    Sign languages are just as different as spoken languages are around the world. JSL actually is closer to spoken Japanese compared to ASL. It’s been fun learning!

    I have enjoyed all the guest strips but since I am kind of new to this strip I am looking forward to your new strip next week. So far I have loved it.

    [...] Continuity note! We first saw the Eastons’ use of sign language in this guest strip by Adrean Clark. [...]
