Guest Comic by T. Andrew Dempsey

Originally posted in http://www.mylifeinthetrenches.com.  Re-published here with permission.

    This hilarious comic strip is by T. Andrew Dempsey, the heart and soul of the webcomic, My Life in the Trenches!

    Tim asked me if he could have Rianne guest in his comic as a doctor again, and I was more than happy to oblige!  Tim is one artist I know who gets the good doctor.  In this comic, it particularly shows in her prolonged interjection, "Dear Mother-of-Pearl!"

    I don't know if anyone has caught on to it before and I'm not absolutely sure if Tim intended to allude to this running gag in Callous Comics.  Whenever Rianne feels the need to spew expletives, they are usually along the lines of, "Gosh darn it!" or "Golly!", and the like.  "Dear Mother-of-Pearl!" is a perfect fit and one I wish I thought of before!

    That's not all. of course. Tim captured the humor and feel of this series in its clinical setting in this strip!  Thank you so much for this! :)

    Be sure to check out My Life in the Trenches!
