Happy 12/12/12, everyone. I'm posting this at 12:12 just to add to the nerdity. Also, the pageview count is 10,212...coincidence? Anyway, these four Mini Epics strips are favourites of mine – a sequence featuring Gertrude and Psyche in a bookshop. I'd been in quite a few bookshops at the time I drew these and that's what inspired it. Buying books can be quite an intense process for some people, as you will see below.
