This sounds about right.

Wow, I was thinking about that not fifteen minutes ago. This damn comic always hits you where it counts.

There is like some rule that I have to wait at least ten days to reply to your comments, but let my excuse this time be that it took me a while to regain my will to live after no longer being in Indiana (I came back to Philadelphia for fall break). Anyway.

Sometimes I worry about Joey Comeau. You know? Sometimes the A Softer World strips are really dark, and they all seem to be variations on the same "love sucks" motif lately. Also, have you ever read his fiction? It's all super depressing. Overqualified in particular was really upsetting. It actually reminded me a lot of Sakura Kitten, and I kept thinking, Man, whatever happened to that girl? Is she still living with her parents? Did she ever go to college?

No worries, I have been known to answer emails MONTHS late. If you get back to me on something within a month, I am envious of how organized and on top of things you are. We can only hope Joey is going to therapy regularly, the inside of that man's head is a terrifying place. At least only some of his strips make us go "omg it's so true I'm flinging myself in front of a bus right now," he has had all of those thoughts! It's amazing he keeps going.
