#1118: The Price of Everything and the Value of Nothing

April 22, 2016

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #1117: If We Stand Together, We Win

The title comes from an Oscar Wilde quote: “What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.” Has there ever been a more incisive wit than Wilde? (THE ANSWER IS NO.)

Another great, relevant quote I found while trying to figure out a title for this strip was from writer and Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan (in Good Housekeeping of all places): “Cynicism is not realistic and tough. It's unrealistic and kind of cowardly because it means you don't have to try.”

Come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia (June 2–4 only)

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Hello! If you’re in the area, come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia with Phil Kahn of Guilded Age. We’ll be at Booth 1702. NOTE: I will only be there from June 2–4. No Thursday preview for me.

(Here’s a floor plan for your planning pleasure.)

If you use the coupon code GUILDED, you can get 20% off your advanced ticket orders.

I will have copies of the brand-spankin’-new, not-even-officially-released Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) in tow, draw sketches (for monies), and if my iPad has any juice in it, I’ll show you some behind the scenes stuff from the Multiplex 10 short, too.
