Another week of B&W REX strips for the folks who otherwise only see the color versions. A reminder that while I color the Sunday strips, the daily color is done by someone else. The gray tones you see on the dailies here are my work -- and, as far as I'm concerned, are the official versions of the daily strips.
This week reminds us that the Morgans are planning a move to a new house -- and presents the flip side of last week -- life and death -- both part of the ongoing experience of a medical professional.
Some readers had trouble recalling the young mother we meet in these strips -- wondering when the drowning rescue sequence happened in the strip. The answer is -- it didn't. This is a event from Rex's life that was not recorded in the comic strip. In other words, I just wrote it -- a "continuity implant" I suppose you'd call it. But I figure not every incident in Rex's life had been recorded on the comics page. As the strip's new writer, I get to add to his history -- them's the rules.
