Grocery stores are essentially structured like lab rat mazes. First, there’s the intoxicating whiff of the bakery section as you walk in. Then there’s the fact that the staple foods (milk, cheese, etc.) are scattered in the far back corner of the store. Or what about those ‘end of aisle’ deals? Everything in a grocery store is scrutinized and researched, with the main intent to keep the customer in the store as long as possible.
(The longer you are there, the more you buy, or so the theory goes…)
Irrational, huh? ;)
In other news, I’ll be doing a book signing at Sacred Grounds Coffeehouse in Tampa on Friday, December 11th from 6:30 – 8:30PM. It’ll be an informal meet-up, where I’ll be on hand to answer questions about the book and characters, and this whole “webcomic” thing. Oh, and I’ll have copies of “Rebootus Maximus” for sale (with plenty of high fives and free book sketches to go around!). Stop by if you can!
Lastly, there are just a few more strips left to run before I leave for Mumbai, India. Don’t worry, though. I’ve got some “blasts from the pasts” to share with you while I’m on vacation.
Update: You’re not seeing things. I’ve revised the comic’s dialogue. I think the new dialogue works much better than what I originally had in place.
