Believe it or not, the very first DnR cartoon was scrawled into a Robert Bateman sketch pad 24 years ago this month. I look at it now and think it's a bit of a wonder this thing ever got off the ground. But now, over two decades later, with the strip and the characters really finding their feet (as well as other things), it's fun to look at those old pieces of work and see what happened as a result. So, with apologies to the musical I Do I Do, here's a little wallpaper souvenir for the occasion — and now the pressure is on for the 25th anniversary next year. Thanks all for being such faithful readers, during all of the strip's many highs and lows. I promise to continue to at least try to make it worth your while.
