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.
