It’s Molly! Molly’s one of my favorite characters, and not just because she originated as an author avatar for Lit Brick. She’s relentlessly cheerful and perky, unless you somehow manage to awaken the beast inside and see her furious temper. Molly, by the very nature of the strip, usually takes a backseat to the comics she’s theoretically drawing. As such, I’ve never really told a real story with her. That said, you can still learn a lot about Molly simply through Lit Brick itself (an obviously love of literature, a passion for classic rock, a bent towards absurdist humor, etc). While I’m clearly the one drawing the comic IRL, I’ve made an effort now and then to draw the comic in-character. Which is to say, Molly’s opinions in the strip don’t always reflect my own.
Anyway, I’m rambling. When MESS first began and it was an anthology strip with short chapters, the action was going to occasionally jump over to Molly so I could flesh her out a bit more. It never quite worked out, however, so she’s stayed confined to the background of Lit Brick for now.
Lit Brick is back, on a daily basis, for what is probably a fairly limited time. I was in a mood yesterday.

A couple weeks ago, Lit Brick began it’s SALUTE TO OZ. Here’s the first five strips.
THIS IS A GOOD CARD
Thank you! Admittedly, a deity would probably be a TAD overpowered in the game itself, but I’m pretty sure I’ll still draw her onto one of the blank cards. I’ll be shamelessly making cards for ALL of my webcomic characters eventually.
