After spending so much narrative on Matt and Leia, I wanted to give Andy something to do. It’s not much, but I also wanted to differentiate Matt and Andy who at this point are still basically the same character with slightly different voices. This arc includes the next major Beanie Maul/Mail-Man fight, the first appearances of Piotr and Ivan the Huge Bird, as well as my first (and only) attempt to create a connect-the-dots puzzle. This is also the last arc I did before the art considerably improves. These strips were published from October to November 2001.
