Speaking Of …

Amazing how one thought leads to another somtimes.

  • After an absence of nearly a year, Maura came back to Clango having lost some weight. Yet today she appears to be back to her old self (which make no mistake, was a horrible, horrible person). While it’s true that Rich Stevens is capricious and lives by whim, he doesn’t call do-over with his characters without a lot more logic than what we’ve seen so far today. I’m thinking evil twin or evil robot. Or evil robot twin.

    I also wanted to thank everyone who let me know that Dinosaur Comics stuff is showing up in the background of the new season of The IT Crowd!

Note for non-USA American readers: Here in Freedomonia, uninsured means No health care for you, so suffer you poor bastard.

Depending on your creator’s shipping deadline, you’re running shy on days to get your swag before your holiday of choice, so get crackin’.
