Notes from the Manager
Related Strips: #619: Jackpot
Thanks to everyone who came out to Webcomics Con to see me — especially Kevin Bernstene, who is now the second reader to have given me a flask filled with brandy at a convention. What distinguishes Kevin's gift from Harrison Pious's is that the new one has the Multiplex logo engraved on it.
I have no objection to this becoming a running joke with me at cons, by the way. Give me all the flasks of brandy that you want to.
The title, "Imitation of Life," is a reference to the 1959 Douglas Sirk film with Lana Turner.
This strip takes place not long after #629; that's why the calendar still says September. Not that it's important to know that.

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.
