And a Public Service Announcement from Sally and Francesco:
Submitted by DanV:
Yesterday, Francesco Marciuliano posted that a Utah newspaper objected to the first comic (the color one), so he had to rewrite the middle panel just for them.
Maybe it’s just me, but… while I like both versions, I think the second one is funnier.
I assumed this storyline existed because an accident actually took out Ces’s patio — but surely he doesn’t live in a universe where a contractor will do work without payment up-front.
… if the place is about to shut down anyway, giving up half of one’s (soon-to-be-nonexistent) salary in return for a stake in the business isn’t such a bad deal, is it? Basically a zero downside here.
