You Say It First is a web comic by Terrance Marks and his wife Isabel. It is the sequel to Marks's first web comic Unlike Minerva and ran from Feb 20, 2004 to Jan 25, 2013. The comic was followed by Nicole and Derek in 2015.


Brisbane Adams and Kimberly Taylor had been friends, rivals and potential love interests when they worked in the Minerva Theatre. Just as they were getting close to figuring each other out, the Minerva Theater shut down. As their friends scattered to the winds, Brisbane - now jobless and homeless - was left to fend for himself. The only person he could turn to was his friend, rival and potential love interest, Kimberly Taylor.

The two of them faced the world, both its victories and defeats, together... and cautiously waited to see who would be the one to make the first move - who would say it first...
