Notes from the Manager
First things first: I know. Several of the "facts" in here have since been debunked. This strip takes place on Tuesday, immediately after the news broke -- and some of these debunked facts are still being reported in supposedly legitimate news outlets, like the bit about pills being "scattered about" his body. Anyway. Bear with me. I'm going somewhere with this.
Second: I'm not trying to make fun of his death, so don't yell at me about that. Bear with me, and when this is all done, if you think it was in poor taste, then yell at me, and I'll tell you how little I care.
Third: I liked Heath Ledger as an actor, in the handful of movies I've seen him in, and I felt he was on the verge of a breakthrough in his career with Dark Knight. So, really. I'm not making fun. Bear with me.
Thank you again to Shayna Marchese for the guest strip on Monday. If you missed it, go read it. It's in-continuity, and all of you love Devi, so of course you want to know what's been up with her, right?

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
