I think this came across clearly in today's comic but I feel the need to clarify something just in case.
Garrit's argument of "I only hit you once..." isn't much of a defense at all and neither he nor I are saying that only hitting your spouse once isn't abuse. He was just trying to make it clear that he only struck his ex-wife once and not repeatedly. He's not proud of it and neither should anyone who indulges in any form of abuse, physical or otherwise.
I have discovered that it's better to apologize on the side of caution when it comes to the internet.
I also forgot to mention that November's Donation Wallpapers ought to be up after I come back from NEKOCON this weekend. One may be necromantic. One may be splattery. In either case I do hope you like them.
That's all from me for now.
Hope to see you at Nekocon!
