Notes from the Manager

So tired. Too much detail to finish before I crash out tonight, so here it is without color shading/toning in the first four panels. (EDIT: It will still be in sepia tones, not "color," like the last panel in #271. I was tired when I wrote that. Poor word choice.)

“Blewitt,” incidentally, refers to Kenneth Blewitt, the manager of the Regal Theater from 1939 through 1959. He was the first Black movie theater manager in Chicago.

Thanks are due to Jason Nellis, for a little research assistance earlier in the month. (Jason says, “Go to Hulu.”)

OH! And, Chicago-area comic book readers — especially those on the north side — would do well to check out Third Coast Comics. It's existed for some time as a mail order service, but it just opened a brick-and-mortar store at 6234 N. Broadway in Edgewater. It's a terrific little shop, with a fantastic mix of indie and mainstream stuff.

UPDATE (8/23): Finally finished toning them. Thanks are due to Jason Bryant (a.k.a. CodeGuy) for a bit of assistance toning one of the panels!
