The magic is fading

Alright. Let me start this by saying: if you read this comic, thank you! Thank you thank you thank you. I make it because I like reading comics, and I like making comics, and I like when people read the stuff I make. The medium of comic strips is an artistic conversation I feel like I can contribute too. Knowing that people read these and enjoy them is important to me, not for the sake of vanity but rather because it feels like their purpose is fulfilled (the comic strips purpose, that is). Music is written and recorded to be listened too and enjoyed- I make comics to be read and to give people a laugh.

Alright, let the rant commence.

Actually, this comic fairly adequately and concisely expresses my feelings on the matter. If you aren’t a fan of lord of the rings movies, let me just say: the magic is draining from this world, who needs dragons when people are worse.

Marketing mambo

If you wanna be a lawyer, you gotta pass the bar. I don’t think it’s good enough to simply say, “I took the test.” That is, unless you’re selling a product! The assumption is the test was passed, but assumptions are what marketing prey on.

From the packaging, I wonder if the pediatrician smeared some on their forehead and said, “it doesn’t run into my eyes”. Anyways, just a thought I had after all the “sunscreen chemical burning children” talk last year: I’d like to know if it is approved, not just that it has been tested.

I mean, my kids sunburn at the drop of a hat, so it’s not like we have much choice either way.

Also, I’m aware the expression is “mumbo jumbo” but I like marketing mambo better.
