Previously: Progress is being made on the movie, even as the cast and crew stays loose.
CLICK TO ENLARGEI've had numerous debates with people (almost all women) who fully believe in astrology and I've never found a completely-rational explanation for their belief. The traits associated with each astrological sign are easily interchangeable and could apply to all sorts of people, regardless of when they were born. For example, my sign (and therefore CM's as well), Pisces, is associated with, according... read more »
Previously: As shooting begins on the movie, leading man Aiden is optimistic but cautious.
CLICK TO ENLARGEThis one I went back in and added later as events further down the story necessitated it. Without giving anything away, I felt that I needed to show a fun moment in-between shooting with an emphasis on Donna and Sophie. Don't worry, I promise this story won't get all dark and grim. And besides, any excuse to do more with the two of them is a good one, as far as I'm concerned. read more »

Previously: The first day of shooting on CM's movie is somewhat less than productive.
CLICK TO ENLARGEAnd how appropriate is this - that this week's chapter falls during the same week that the Supreme Court wrestles with the gay marriage question? I don't recall if I've said it here before, but even if I did, I'll say it again: I have yet to see a rational argument against gay marriage, and I question whether one can be made. The mere fact of its existence hurts no one economically, no one's rights ar... read more »

Previously: Nadine, the leading lady in CM's movie, makes it plain to CM that she sees his movie as a springboard to revive her sagging television career.
CLICK TO ENLARGEI actually have an idea for a completely silent City Mouse story, though it doesn't have anything to do with the movies. I'm not sure if that'll be my next CM strip after this one or not. I have two ideas for my follow-up: one with the working title "City Mouse In Love" which would take place entirely in NYC and introduce an all-new,... read more »
Previously: CM has cast the lead actors for his film.
CLICK TO ENLARGEAnd we're back. This week's strip is the first of several strips over the course of the next few weeks in which you'll get to know the cast members of CM's film, and if it wasn't obvious by now, Nadine's gonna be a fairly significant character. I've been having a lot of fun writing her. She's the kind of character that ends up changing the plot of the story as her personality becomes better defined, and indeed, I have re-worked the ... read more »

In the summer, I'd occasionally get a root beer float.There will be four off-weeks over the course of this strip; Saturdays in which the strip will take a break. Next Saturday, the 9th, will be the first, because I'll be reporting from the Queens World Film Festival. CM will r... read more »
