#801: Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics

April 26, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #800: See It with a Bud

This will get explained indirectly or otherwise in the next strip or so, but since it’s not supposed to be a point of suspense, I’ll save you the math: 24 tickets means they made $192. 

For context, looking at this past Tuesday on Box Office Mojo, the film it would have replaced would have made roughly $100–130 (12–16 tickets) the whole day — so maybe four people in the one screening they replaced.

20 extra people doesn’t sound too bad until you factor in the rental cost of the movie, which would have been around $300.

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.
