View Transcript Alex's Cousin (Kartchner Greenwald): Hey, cuz, I've noticed you haven't been feelin' too well lately, what's up?
Alex: Ugh, fucking *hell*, Kartch I *don't want to talk about it*.

Kartchner: Aw, c'mon Alex, you came to me when you needed help puzzling out your identity, when you struggled to come out to your folks, hell any time you needed someone with more life experience. What makes this different?

Alex: *FUCKING EVERYTHING*, MAN!
I may be 10 years younger than you, but I'm *not* a kid anymore, Kartchner! I can't just solve *all* my fucking problems by *talking* about them!

Alex: Fuck this. I'm going on break.

[Beat as Kartchner, along with Bob (whose redesign features a blue t-shirt and maroon shorts, not currently visible) and Alex and Bob's manager, Kirsten Seong just stare]

Bob: DUDE YOU SAID YOU COULD HELP!
Kartchner: I DIDN'T *KNOW* THEY'D BE THIS BAD!
Kirsten: Fucking *HELL* Kartchner, I can't let my best employee become a bitter husk!
It's bad enough that *I'm* already one!

Author Notes

5/29/2022, 10:00 AM Yep, this strip officially introduces two new supporting cast members from the characters I created during 30 Days Of Characters, specifically Kartchner Greenwald and Kirsten Seong (who was previously mentioned back in strip 155). It's always great to expand the cast.

Oh yeah Bob's here too. Haven't seen him in like, almost 50 strips, good lord.

5/30/2022, 7:17 AM Kartchner’s just trying his best here! Give the dude a break. Looking at this character page you did, I can see he’s a “live life to the fullest” sort of guy, lol. I’m glad he was able to help Alex come out as genderfluid. Doesn’t seem he’s having as much luck here though.
