Okay i wasn’t gonna hand-letter this one. And no, this does not set a new precedent in terms of gigantic blocks of text. Expect significantly less text next week, for instance. And no, it does not set a new precedent in terms of being topical either. There is no precedent. The only thing to expect is something unexpected. Not even I know what the comic’s gonna be until like ten minutes beforehand. The garage full of illegal immigrant workers who write and draw the comic is shrouded in secrecy. Nobody knows what to expect on sunday night and then BAM! a fifty-thousand word catastrophe about Canadian politics. What could be more appealing?! Some will accuse me of pandering, since the internet is clogged with text-heavy comics about Canadian elections, the creators of which are raking in the dollars via merchandising. Have you read “Lester Pearson and The Guy From The Legend of Zelda Make Scatalogical Puns?” It’s a sprite comic that I so dearly love made by seventeen teenagers from west virginia who donate all their proceeds to charity. I’m totally copying them I know, but I’m just such a huge fan.
Stay off those land mines,
