Metapost: I'm so proud of myself



As pointed out in the comments, today's (April 3) Retail contains an apparent shout-out to me. I'm so proud to see the term I made up used and used correctly in a syndicated newspaper comic strip. I think I can finally say this: I've contributed to the lexicon! That's been my goal all along, to add a phrase to the terminology of comics. Thank you, Norm Feuti

Also, I would like to ask a huge favor. I'm not sure in what papers Retail is printed--most likely the Seattle Post Intelligencer and maybe a few other papers in the country--but if you have a copy of one, I would love to get my hands on it. If you can help, email me at penultimatepanel@gmail.com. Thanks again, everyone.

The quality of a lot o strips are
definitely improving. Your blogs has
made many cartoonist take notice, and has made them do better work.

I'm so glad this blog has made me totally unable to read a comic with an spp (even one that works) and just let it slide.

Strangely, in the Dilbert for April 10, the Penultimate Panel is the only one that isn't silent. I think that merits some sort of comment.
