This is the second strip in a row that has “buy” in the title. This was unplanned and in no way have I been hired by any sort of Illuminati organization to subliminally entice you, my audience, into making unnecessary purchases.

Let me assure you that I would never allow the acquisition of my principles. They simply aren’t for sale. And I certainly would not let some third party tell me how to write my strip, no matter what the bargain. Here’s the deal, folks: I appreciate the way you all have made an investment in my little comic, and I value that too much to throw it all away.
