#630: Imitation of Life

October 3, 2011

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #619: Jackpot

Thanks to everyone who came out to Webcomics Con to see me — especially Kevin Bernstene, who is now the second reader to have given me a flask filled with brandy at a convention. What distinguishes Kevin's gift from Harrison Pious's is that the new one has the Multiplex logo engraved on it.

I have no objection to this becoming a running joke with me at cons, by the way. Give me all the flasks of brandy that you want to.

The title, "Imitation of Life," is a reference to the 1959 Douglas Sirk film with Lana Turner.

This strip takes place not long after #629; that's why the calendar still says September. Not that it's important to know that.

Syd

It’s only been a couple of months since I said goodbye to Punk and today my fiancée Karyn and I had to say goodbye to her cat Sydney. Like Punk, she was eighteen years old and had multiple long-term health issues.

I only knew her for the last eight of her years, and although we had a contentious start, and she never got along with Punk, we grew to have a special bond. In the last few months, she would sit on me as I slept and be the first thing I saw almost every morning. She was a very sweet, ridiculously affectionate cat, and we will both miss her.

Multiplex is taking a very short break. I’ll see you here Monday.
