Head's UP! The Sluggy Store is closed! It will reopen at 11am Eastern Standard Time on Novemeber 27th (Black Friday) and we'll have all sizes of the new Bun-bun shirt in stock, hopefully some other shirt sales, and a limited supply of all of the Sluggy Books as signed editions! All the books except for the brand new Sluggy Freelance Book 15 TIMELESS that you can order from Indyplanet RIGHT NOW! W00t! For once I'm ready WAY before the holidays! I want a cookie. Moving on.

AUCTIONS: (*spoiler warning* if you're going through the archive for the first time, viewing these aucton pieces may spoil lots!)Original Art Auctions are ON! They end Tuesday! Get a Sluggite a unique gift they can't get anywhere else!
We STILL seem to have a RANDOM ARCHIVE GLITCH where clicking on the next comic will take you to the next comic page, but oddly display a comic from a totally different date. Hitting Refresh sometimes helps. We're working on it!
I found this script-conundrum interesting! Panel 4, balloon 3. Should it be:
1) “His last word was ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
2) “His last words were ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
3) “His last word(s) were (was) ‘boobs.’ He’d like that.”
The problem is people have ‘last words’, not ‘a last word’ but Sam’s ‘last words’ were(was), in fact, A WORD. So #1 seems most grammatically accurate, yet #2 captures the feeling of the statement best. And #3 was just in my original script as I tried to walk the line between #1 and #2. And I am amused a little bit as #2 works a little better than it might purely because boobs are plural. *shrug*
