https://wilderwealthywise.com has been down for most of the day. John did put up a “Can’t Post Today” post but we can’t access it. I can access Friday’s post by clicking on it through email (I left a comment and subscribed) so we’re hopeful this is a WordPress thingy and not a “You’ve been deleted from the internet” HaHa thingy.
At any rate, John has our email amongst others, so if he has been canceled we’ll give a pointer to his new demense as soon as it becomes available. It’s all of us, folks. We anticipate being canceled one day, too. So should you.

PS Today’s comic is definitely going to be published tomorrow morning. Sorry about that!
We suffered a severe art emergency that carried over through the weekend. Everyone is okay. The drawing devices are fine. Today’s comic will be published later tonight, or possibly tomorrow morning at our usual time (5:00am Pacific).
For those wondering, an art emergency occurs when an opportunity comes along that you’d like to take advantage of, but it involves extra work that has to be done right now. We’ll provide more information at a later time, as we are still working through said emergency.
–> Codex & Q
Why does he sport handsome mulluscan* features?
How is he* trailing… ectoplasm?
WHAT has Codex done with our comic?
Codex here. The main super-sekrit reason I needed a break (which got broken by missing computers and busted glasses) wasn’t just to build the south side of Ione’s study or endless crockery assets, complete with artistic cracks. Nope. there was another project involving this delightful creature, a library, and a really good book, so do save some Christmas budget for your tween- and teen-age readers.
Further I sayeth not, but All Will Be Revealed in time.
See you Monday.
*Second coolest phylum after Ascomycota.
**Possibly. After all, in English as in life, properly speaking, the male embraces the female. Assuming it applies in the first place of course. The Dungeon Dimensions get… Odd.
Our Monday started Friday. “Your power will be off for five hours” they told us. Starting at 9am and ending ’round about 3pm they said. We figured they’d start late and end on Saturday. Like they do. We were ready. We were prepped.
Computers were powered off the night before. Hatches were battened. Trips were planned to Costco during the Friday downtime. What else was Quizzer going to do? I went to work. At 9:30 the power went down, and came up at 12:30. What a blessing.
The fridge started running again. The coffee maker came alive (Praise Heaven). Glyph’s computer woke up. My computer restarted. Quizzer’s… Decided to take his threats to go Amish personally. We hope it is the power supply. We have a new one on order, but it won’t be here until Tuesday. No worries. We’d have family movie night and watch No Time for Sergeants together.
After all, my ancient, whirring beast is still up and running Manga Studio. I broke out the comic out Saturday morning and went to work. When I got home, I was going to draw, baby, draw. I had an entire massive rash to execute and all the red, pink and ochre pigments loaded to create it! Just scan in my sketches I’d drawn on the back of the printed script and… And.
Where is the complete script for comic #246? The paper copy with all my sketches on it…?
We definitely know it’s on Q’s machine. Which is dead as a door nail. Big. Dead. Nail.
We have an alternate script that Quizzer wrote Friday morning. Which he mostly remembers. (Mostly.) And I’ve got ALL Sunday to draw it. Which is good because we get a lot of praying in on Sundays.
God willing and the creeks don’t rise, we’ll run the alternate comic on Monday, a new power supply will arrive on Tuesday. That will turn out to be a solution to what’s wrong. Computer stuff will happen. Prohibition 5 will land on Thursday, and I will have “Walking Home Dead” loaded by 5am this Friday.
Of course, the Imp of the Perverse might decide to double down. Quizzer might get hit by a flaming tire from a crashed Pepsi-Cola truck*. Without a machine of his own, he… Hang on
Might. Die. Due to. Online addiction electrification
You’ll have to ask him about that.
On the bright side, once I get this sucker loaded we can go downstairs and watch Second Hand Lions.
This is weird and I hate to ask, but a new reader who goes by ‘SoundEagle’ followed by several mystery letters has tried to comment and like a bunch of our posts. I know because they show up in the email attached to the site.
Unfortunately, none of their comments appear for moderation or in the posts. I’ve checked spam. I’ve checked trash. I’ve checked pending. I’ve reloaded. I’ve quit browsers and restarted. I even sacrificed an entire can of green beans by recycling it into the compost heap. Surely the WordPress Fairy would take note and give us a break, no?
And no, I didn’t put the *can* there. That’s what the neighbors yard is for. Continue reading
Unfortunately, we have to extend our hiatus by an extra week. There is plenty of blame to be assessed, but ultimately it comes down to insane work policies at Codex’ ‘Day Job’, and her optometrist.
For those of you sipping either coffee or an adult beverage: Engage yellow alert.
If we could scientifically measure the policies put in place where Codex works, it would be about 12º Kelvin. It isn’t absolute insanity (0º K), because nothing at all would be done and that would be an improvement. They have to wipe everything down with a toxic solution designed to kill all viruses, germs, and bacteria, and yet is perfectly drinkable by children and leaves skin and furniture silky-smooth. Science says it is extremely difficult for the Covid virus to be transmitted via surfaces, but her workplace only follows CNN Science. We’ll just shorthand that to SCieNNce. Continue reading
*** We originally ran this in September of 2018, but it always bugged me that we left off the ‘Help Wanted’ sign, which I only realized after we’d published it. I think everyone got it anyway. Fixed! ***
