I got so excited working on new strips, I almost forgot to repost these “old” strips! But here’s another! And here’s some of the commentary from June 11, 2012:

When the original Utopian strip launched, it was self-consciously, self-dubbed “America’s Most Emo Comic Strip.” Ironically, some critics (you know, the anonymous kind on the internet) actually derided it for BEING emo — which means they obviously missed the joke.

Hence, the title of today’s strip is kind of a barb at those haters. And an admission that the current sequence IS a little emo. But guess what? I told you: I’m writing a soap opera. So, yep. It’s soapy.
