#1118: The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing

April 22, 2016

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #1117: If We Stand Together, We Win

The title comes from an Oscar Wilde quote: “What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.” Has there ever been a more incisive wit than Wilde? (THE ANSWER IS NO.)

Another great, relevant quote I found while trying to figure out a title for this strip was from writer and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan (in Good Housekeeping of all places): “Cynicism is not realistic and tough. It's unrealistic and kind of cowardly because it means you don't have to try.”

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.
