Notes from the Manager
Another sort-of-related strip would be #207½ (“Just Press Play”) from the Chapter 10 eBook (and Book Two). Becky and Franklin never spent a lot of screen time together, but since they’re both projectionists and debatably the two most book-smart characters in the comic (Becky being a science nerd and Franklin being a programmer), I’ve always felt they would have had a solid rapport.
This strip takes its title from the Yasujiro Ozu film of the same name, one of my favorite directors, whose work is very often imbued with melancholy. (It’s not one of my favorites, but the title fit. The film’s plot has nothing to do with anything, though)
Just saying this now: Monday’s comic will be up in the afternoon/early evening, most likely, as I’m going to be away from a proper computer most of the weekend.
We’ll have at least one more strip on Becky’s last day next week. I’ll see you then!

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.
