Everyone knows how much I loved our previous artist, Joe Giella. But I also really love June Brigman, even if she doesn't know how to spell "bagel." Yesterday reminded me that one of her big credits for Marvel comics (I presume) was drawing Star Wars comic books. So I went searching online for other work from June. And I found this, from a 1992 issue of Legion of Superheros that she penciled.

I say, stop holding June back and let her run wild! I can't wait to see where we're headed next with this strip.

Have no fear, Jared. Princess Leia Organa and her squad have just arrived across the street on the 57 cross-town bus, and she's coming over to help you teach Dr. Ned "Darth" Fletcher a lesson in manners.

Well, to be fair, Jared, you didn't know he was married either. Which begs the question: How many of us do not know the marital status of our bosses? Show of hands, please.

"Remember our marriage vows? For better or for worse? Well, it's about to get a whole lot worse."

"And I'll be bringing home a new mommy for you!" ...Because Dr. Ned is talking to his child, right? Right?

Does anybody else think Ned's ringtone is incredibly square? What a dweeb.

"It's okay, my lovely, I won't rush you."

"What part of overwhelmed don't you understand? I am feeling rushed. I just said it was overwhelming. And you won't rush me to what, exactly?"

I for one can't wait to see the dramatic tension added to this story by Dawn and Ned being discreet at work.

I think the only thing that will calm me down will be a few hours of listening to the Charterstone Jukebox. By the way, I keep getting requests to add "Dawn" by the Four Seasons to the Jukebox. It was added years ago. I've moved it up in the playlist on occasion when past requests have been made, but I'm just going to leave it where it is for now, and let you enjoy "Dawn" and all the music on the jukebox. I most enjoy listening in the car, while I'm mowing the lawn, and when I'm being discreet at work.

Dawn's amazement stems from the fact that stuff doesn't happen in the Worthiverse. So when something does, it is first to be doubted and then avoided. Trust me. Today's thrill is merely a prologue to tomorrow's tedium. Even after Jared rustles the hydrangeas.

DAWN... You and I have a lot in common. I'm divorced and my four kids live with their mother in New Hampshire. In many ways, I'm just like your father.

Hmmm... Wasn't the last French restaurant that Ned took Dawn to called The Pig? Now it's The Love Dog. I think the restaurateurs in Santa Royale are trying to warn Dawn about something. Probably the cuisine.

Dawn Weston Dating Ethics: Dating your professor is only okay if you say you're taking a break from dating. Dating the boss is aMAZing!

Ned is going to be really disappointed to discover that Dawn is taking a break from dating.

Wait. I thought dinner was last night. Maybe Dr. Ned has actually been hovering over Dawn for literally four days.

I'm really happy for Dawn. It looks like she has found true love at last! All signs point to yes! I'm equally happy for Ned, whose bitter divorce left him emotionally devastated. But now an attractive young coed has looked deep into his soul and revived his heart like no medical professional ever could.

Also, happy for Jared, who dodged a bullet.

"Dawn, there's been a lot of confusion about health insurance. As you know, Congress hasn't been able to fulfill its manic ambition to deprive millions of people of their health care. I'd like you to summarize all of the issues and view points and send it out in a MASS MAILING to my patients. Thanks. You're amazingly mature."

It looks like Jared has been keeping his nose to the grindstone. That thing could fillet a salmon.

Las Vegas oddsmakers are saying Dr. Ned Fletcher is the creep, and Jared will be the frog prince that rescues Dawn, but Atlantic City is saying that good looking men with money are always princes, and quirky oddballs like Jared are the creeps. Place your bets.

Since when has being nosy been a negative personality trait in the Worthiverse?

Whoa! What kind of meddler is Medical Assistant Jared anyway? A real meddler doesn't ask questions! A real meddler simply inserts advice without all the facts. Amateur.

Dawn is so awesome. She can already tell that Jared is a total loser, with his orange scrubs and his shaggy hair. Heck, he isn't even thirty yet, which makes him nothing more than a snot-nosed child, good for nothing more than a trifling annoyance in her day. I love Dawn. She's awesome.
