Readers, may you never know the pain of a finger lock or a come-along. Or a pissed off Mega who might take some pleasure in gifting you with that pain. Although I stopped short of a full come-along (it's more a Z-lock, technically) because, you know what? You just can't fully appreciate a come-along unless you're IN one. The illustration of it wasn't gonna cut it.
The FINAL day to sign up to receive a What it Takes postcard is THIS FRIDAY. If you are/were a Patron, or have donated to support me/this comic, you can send me your mailing address (email@example.com). It doesn't matter if you're international or in the US. I'd send them out to everyone who's donated, but, um, I don't want you to receive mail from me you don't want.
