Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow


This was kind of a fun, spur of the moment strip. I’d like to lie and say it came in a dream, but it did come immediately following waking up from one. So, that’s sort of mystical in a completely not-at-all manner.

Anyway, Macbeth has always been a favorite play, and these lines seem to fit well with the idea of putting off papers (with a little strong arming of them, of course).
