Codex wanted the weekend off. ‘Why not’, I thought, ‘she deserves it.’

I don’t want this to be all-about-me but let’s face it: best husband and co-comic-collaborator ever.

We’re putting the book together. Or rather, the first two books. The single biggest part of it is the list of errata and minor changes in our first 200 comics. It… isn’t short. The bulk of the fixes relies on Codex. I get to shuffle the finished bits around, lay out the pages, and execute the marketing plan. It’s a good one.

Just out of curiosity, do any of you have blackmail material on any of the beloved oligarchs currently ruling the planet? I’d like to borrow it.

Taking the weekend off is somewhat of a problem. What would happen to our beloved readers if you came to us and didn’t see a new comic on Friday or Monday? I can see the disappointment, the dashed expectations, and the lowered immune systems through the magic of the internet. It could leave you vulnerable to whatever creeping crud is going around. We’d feel bad about that.

You might even go read old Garfield strips [shudder]. We’d feel even worse.

So, Codex managed to create an Easter comic, which will run on Sunday rather than Monday, and I managed to create a Good Friday comic, which will run as usual tomorrow morning, and we managed to create them almost simultaneously and without any argument of any kind what so ever. We call that a ‘comix miracle’.

Have a good weekend, everyone, and stay sane. It’s just two more weeks to flatten the curve until tax day. We’ll be back to the mystery cave and imminent demise of one our most beloved characters next Friday.
