Awesome! I've mentioned before that I went to high school with Dale and David, but I haven't seen either of them in ages. (Moving out of town will do that.) I'm glad to see he's got a new project going, and this one looks great.

Oh man! A lesson is learned is one of my favorite webcomics ever. Thanks for the post!

I liked that very much, except for the part that said "tenants" instead of "tenets".

Yeah, A Lesson is Learned is probably my favorite comic ever. I'm not a hardcore comic connoisseur, but I know enough to know that this and this and this and especially this are unparalleled by any comic I've seen in their surreal, koan-like beauty, their effective employment of freeform panel layouts, and their weirdly hopeful sense of humor. I was crushed when it went on hiatus, and I'm thrilled that I get to experience Dale's magical, bizarre comic-writing again. Along with some slightly awkward art.

It doesn't seem to load for me (the actual comic), is anyone else having this issue?

Yeah, there's totally weener on the second page in.

Apart from that, though, it's thoughtful and beautiful.
