Time confronts Death about the situation.
This comic is a week late. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get it done until today due to finals, some family stuff and the fact I had to do a lot of researching for this strip. This particular strip is set in the Zhou Dynasty of China and there was very little information online (at least, that I could find) about Zhou architecture and clothing. (And I’ve taken a class about the arts of China. Apparently most of the surviving art from this period are bronze vessels and such.)
However, starting today I will be publishing weekly comic strips again. This will last throughout the summer.
Time isn’t being particularly helpful.

I had fun with the backgrounds in this strip. They’re meant to convey the mood of the conversation.

Death laments his drunken purchases and Time tells it like it is.
(And is it possible that Time feels a little bad for Death in the last panel?)

Death starts to realize he may have a problem…maybe. And Time is already sick of Death’s nonsense.
Side note: In this strip the background panels that don’t feature the kitchen are supposed to represent the character’s emotions. Time’s anger and Death’s wooziness/lightheaded feeling brought on by “Oh My Goodness, What Have I Done?”

This is it! The beginning of a new arc!
Meanwhile, Death is hungover and confused.

This half comic marks the end of the Roman Arc!

The party continues.
A few fun facts: Quintus’ wife is calling him “cara” which is Latin for “dear”. Also, if you know your ancient Roman history (or just are knowledgeable about Renaissance art and European literature), you’ll know the historical legend that’s being discussed in panels two and three. That also means I’ve dated the comic, so as usual, the clothes may not be historically accurate for this particular time period. (I do try to get things to be accurate, but sometimes artistic license takes over.)
And Death, being the hopeless romantic that he is, has fallen in love again.
Because I am taking mostly english classes this semester (and thus have a lot of reading) Deities will be updated with a lot less frequency as I have to concentrate on my classes. However, come winter break I suspect I’ll be able to go back to one comic a week. (Maybe even more if I’m not working.)

God has a very hard time saying no to Law/Order. Also, Ralph took off his halo.

Death has a tendency to not finish his sentences when he gets angry. Unfortunately for Time, he not only is Death angry at him, but Fate as well. This reaction is partly why Time was stalling.
