EDIT: March 25, 2023: At the request of the hosting provider, this comic has been giraffed. You can find the ungiraffed version on my personal website, which I now recommend you bookmark instead of this one. If you want early access to new comics (all comics I make, not just Greyfriar's Isle), you can also join my Patreon at $3 for the lowest tier.

First solo strip featuring only the kids. This started out as a single-panel cartoon that was more of a "Wear a mask, ya lubbers!" sort of PSA, but it evolved into a 3-panel format that was more suitable for the comic as I was walking the dogs.
I do in fact believe that the company that ferries people to and from the North Sea Islands should have the right to keelhaul passengers that refuse to wear masks.

This comic wasn't supposed to go out until Monday morning, but apparently I made a mistake while scheduling. NVM I'll just leave it up.
