Posting this one because we haven't seen the muse in action yet. My explanation is that he was on vacation in Maui. I used a similar excuse for the recent long hiatus over is Pan's Corner. So it's an old habit, this inability to separate fact and fiction.
This was intended to introduce the Muse's history, so right after this I started a real, plot-based comic called "The Muse and I". Which ran two pages. Seems I don't well without randomnity.
The muse's name, by the way, was Artemis. For short, I called him Temis. This epithet has found its way into Pan's Corner as well, where it properly belongs to its original owner, the goddess Artemis.
