Intervention6 is just TWO WEEKS AWAY! August 14-16, at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville! I’ve got two panels Saturday morning (at 10 and 11!) and my eldest daughter Leah will be with me selling doodles and doing commissions and raking in the dough like she did last intervention! I hope you guys can come by and us!
My birthday’s tomorrow (August 4th)! If you wanted to get me something, the best gift you can give is by becoming a Defender or renewing your Defender membership! Since before Kickstarter and Patreon existed, you guys were keeping this comic a-running and there’s nothing I’d rather do! Except maybe nap. And you guys can’t buy me a nap. So instead become a defender! And THANKS! Happy b-day to me!
We STILL seem to have a RANDOM ARCHIVE GLITCH where clicking on the next comic will take you to the next comic page, but oddly display a comic from a totally different date. Hitting Refresh sometimes helps. We're working on it!
I found this script-conundrum interesting! Panel 4, balloon 3. Should it be:
1) “His last word was ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
2) “His last words were ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
3) “His last word(s) were (was) ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
The problem is people have ‘last words’, not ‘a last word’ but Sam’s ‘last words’ were(was), in fact, A WORD. So #1 seems most grammatically accurate, yet #2 captures the feeling of the statement best. And #3 was just in my original script as I tried to walk the line between #1 and #2. And I am amused a little bit as #2 works a little better than it might purely because boobs are plural. *shrug*
