This was REALLY adorable. I’m glad these two are getting more moments as pals. I don’t mind the strip branching out into more of an ensemble piece at all (it’s one of the best things steenz did coming in), as these two had 20 years to be the main focus together, but it’s still nice to get more reminders these two have been friends for so long. It’s also nice to get a break from Dean’s non brett friends who seem to manefest out of the either any time steenz dosen’t want to draw him. I’m all for comic strips having expansive casts but the character has to justify being there over other characters simply by being that intresting to write for.
