Whew! Great first week back, everyone! If you missed them, there were three comics this week, and I am planning to continue my 5-a-week experiment next week as well.

I promise much more design-centric comics next week, after Conrad recovers from his savage beating. This would probably be a good place to mention that it always struck me as odd that the “villains” of the Pirates movies—you know the ones, the ones killing all the pirates, not the monsters—where killing all of those pirates because of the things pirates do. Which are terrible, terrible things. Totally glossed over. Maybe Johnny Depp only stole boats and drank booze, and we can hope for that, I guess.
