Timmerryn’s run on Dangerous and Fluffy starts today.

Adam, who is leaning over my shoulder as I speak, reminds me to mention that Timmerryn/Rahball’s run on Dangerous and Fluffy started this weekend. Timm brought a lighter touch and atmosphere to the comic during its first run, fitting the farcical turn Adam’s writing was taking at the time. Timm appears to have dropped out …
