#1109: Tattle-tale

March 21, 2016

Notes from the Manager

This is a relevant story about a case against Cinemark breaking wage and hour regulations being dismissed. (That’s a pretty messy case, really, but note that some of the individual claims were separately settled.)

And back in 2011, three chains were fined "child labor" violations, to the tune of $277,000. While that’s not what’s happening here (Illinois doesn't have any special restrictions for 16+ year olds and doesn't hire 14 or 15 year olds because they can’t work late enough), it is a testament to the fact that labor violations like these do occur — not necessarily because of any sort of insidious intent. Often, these violations are due to managers trying to save a buck being ignorant of the law.

Production on Book Three is winding down

Thursday, January 12, 2017

I thought I’d share this one publicly, rather than just to the Kickstarter and Patreon folks. It’ll be used as the “chapter illustration” for the back matter — which means that it will be directly opposite the last page of the comics in Book Three.

Anyway. I just have a couple of illustrations (the cover and the cover/chapter illustration for Chapter 15) before production is officially wrapped — which means I’ll be moving on to proofreading, pre-press, and  other boring stuff next! BUT there will be movie review comics and things like that going up at Kickstarter and Patreon during that time.
