Hey everyone. Erika here. Before we get to today's comic, here's a few things you should know:
1. Brent's been sick this weekend. It appears he as an unreliable immune system and his students have a lot of germs.
2. The copy editor in me feels like I need to acknowledge that the past two comics have featured elliptical statements that actually require commas to be grammatically correct ("Interrupting their speculation, two policemen arrived on the scene..."), but what do you with with a comma when you use ellipses? To which panel would it belong? So...I left it off. I just thought we should all acknowledge the lack of a comma, and I'll do my best to not do it again.
3. Brent's got another periodic comic called "Alien Advertising," and its characters need names! Suggest them in the post right below this one.
That's all! Thanks for reading!
You may have noticed "Alien Advertising" already, but now we need you to do more than just read it:
These characters need names! This week we will gather everyone's ideas, and next week we will have a vote to see which names will stick! Just post your ideas as a comment on this post. You can identify the name with the character by calling them "circle," "square," and "triangle"
(or you can get more creative).
Thanks for your help! We love our readers!
Brent has been spending more time at work lately because, well...
That necessity, combined with this:
and this previously discussed nefarious player in our lives means that today's comic hasn't been drawn yet. We'll get it up later this evening!
