First, thank you to everyone who commented and wrote to me about the return of UTC. I can’t describe in words how much it means to hear from you and know that you still enjoy the comic after so many years and so many long breaks. I’m going to keep doing the best I can to bring Cass and Flint’s story to you all.

Stepping outside of the comic for a moment, I’m posting here the message that ran on the main page for the past two days. It’s down here now but it’s as important today as it was on Monday, and will continue to be important for a long time to come.
