Well, sorry for another long hiatus. To be honest, I just wasn't feeling well enough, mentally, to letter the comics and write these companion texts, despite the script and art having been done months ago. But I need this comic to be back, first because next strip is number 200, and that's a big milestone. And second, because writing and lettering comics makes me feel good, and I need it.

Anyway, this story is from when I went to Buenos Aires for the launch of my first book, Grimorio del Plata (still not available in English, I should fix that). After travelling some six or seven hours by bus and ferry (then a few minutes by taxi), we arrived at the hostel where we were staying, but it was too early in the morning, so the room we'd rented wasn't ready for check-in yet. We were very hungry, and I... well, I was on the verge of pooping myself.

There was a McDonald's nearby, so we went there to get some breakfast. While my friends ordered the food, I went to the restroom, and... oh man. THE HORROR! There was shit EVERYWHERE: the toilet, the floor, the walls, the stall door... It was like someone had fought Golgothan, from Kevin Smith's Dogma, in there. I asked the staff if they could clean it up, and they say the would. Five minutes later, the guy comes back and says it's done... I went back there... and it was not, by any stretch of the imagination, clean.

I had to eat my breakfast while clenching my asscheeks hard, and wait until we got back to the hostel.

Music this time is, obviously, Duel of the Fates, by John Williams, conducting the London Symphony Orchestra and the London Voices choir. Of course, from the Star Wars - Episode I - The Phantom Menace's soundtrack (1999):

This time, music is from Childish Gambino's 2013 album Because the Internet, and it's a song called "3005":
