Guest Comic by Timothy Dempsey

Oh, Tom... had you said coffee in addition to that, she definitely would have changed her mind!

This impressive guest comic was done by none other than Timothy Dempsey, who does the great comic strip, My Life in the Trenches!

Tim was one of the first friends I made once I began making daily Callous comic strips and is one of the very few webcomic artists that I've met beyond the internet (y'know, in real life)!  We met up in a Starbucks in North Bergen, New Jersey last May and talked about comics, life, and whatnot.  I'm really grateful that he took the time to meet up with me and produce this guest comic!  Thanks so much for being a part of this milestone, my friend!

Work, marriage, kids, choices, flirting, travel, TV, movies, video games, dining, exercise, shopping.  Choose your battles, even though you’ll inevitably lose the war.  That's My Life In The Trenches, a semi-autobiographical family friendly webcomic by Timothy Dempsey.
