Happy Motherlover day!! I had a good time drawing this basement and simultaneously hope to never draw it again. That’s comic life.

Patrons have had access to this page – and the next three – since last week, so if you’d like to read ahead, consider taking the plunge and supporting Motherlover! For even just a dollar a month, you get comics straight to your inbox… plus sneak-peeks at upcoming pages! It’s a win-win.

Both my comics are free, and ad-free, thanks to the generous support of patrons. When enough people give just a little bit, y’all can do a lot – like supporting two whole comics!


Panel 1 (huge panel; from behind, Alex and Imogen look down at Lucas, who’s stopped playing the video game)

Panel 2, inset (Lucas, close-up, scared)
Lucas: Mom… I…

Panel 3 (textless; Alex and Imogen look stunned)

Panel 4 (faded out, as if a memory: looking over a younger Alex’s shoulder at her stern-looking parents)

Panel 5 (bigge Lucas, looking sad/shy/guilty)

Panel 6 (Alex, close-up)
Alex: Uh… I’m gonna let you two talk it out.
