Did you all forget that Nolte’s office has a curtained day-bed? I sure didn’t, and I’ve been waiting to use it this whole damn time.
I’ve spent most of this week cranking away on production work for Volume 2 – adding art around the edges of pages that are too closely-trimmed, resizing things, tweaking little art errors that have been driving me nuts for years, editing page notes and dropping them into the layout.

And, in UTTERLY DELIGHTFUL news, “To Be or Not to Be,” the surreally silly choose-your-own-adventure version of Hamlet by Ryan North that includes multiple endings Shakespeare never got around (some of which involve dinosaurs) and dozens of illustrations by artists including yours truly, has now been turned into a playable text-adventure game! As one reviewer notes, “If you enjoy Shakespeare, this is great. If you don’t enjoy Shakespeare, you can go on a revenge fueled vigilantism spree as a ghost exploding people from inside.“
