Notes from the Manager
We're cutting away from the Mexican soap opera to pay some attention to the new recruits at the Multiplex 10, plus Calvin, who hasn't been seen in a while, but was once the new guy himself — and a bit of a cranky one. But as long-time readers know, he lightened up, eventually.
(And, yeah, the title of this two-part strip is probably a bit of a spoiler — but come on, these strips are basically horror movie parodies; you know what's going to happen, you just don't know how it's going to happen).
The last few strips caused a bit of controversy in the comments field, and I'm half afraid that this strip will do the same, since I brought up one of the great political arguments of our time: "soda" vs. "pop." I say "soda," personally, but I'm also not a Chicago native; apparently people from here say "pop." What do YOU say?
See you Monday, and have a safe Halloween. I know I will: I'm staying home to watch The Walking Dead.

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
