Full Contact Game

Despite a surprisingly rapid vaccine campaign (in some parts of the world),for many this is still and unobtainable fantasy: physical contact with someone outside your household. The distant dream of sitting around a table with close friends, eating from shared bowls of snacks, and talking loudly. Without masks. Going to an over-crowded bar and dancing like the rave scene from Matrix Reloaded. Or just simply hugging someone.

For anyone reading this in two or three years, this will hopefully be an anachronistic reminder of what once was. Hopefully. (Assuming anyone is reading my comics in two or three years, which feels pretty ambitiously hopeful already.)

As someone who suddenly and unexpectedly became single three months prior to the world mandating “social distancing” the COVID cockblock has been particularly frustrating.
