#119: The Secret Of My Success
Saturday, September 10, 2011
"Beloved dictator" sounds a bit weird by today's standards. But back in the days of the Roman Republic, "dictator" was an official job title -- a single tribune could be elected as a dictator in hard times such as war, and he was allowed to overrule the senate for a limited amount of time. This played a certain role during the transition from Republic to Empire.
Jerry seems to like Claudia... but you'll only get to see her on Monday.
Before that, you'll get another guest strip today.

Dr. Mysterious: How come that you seem to be quite wealthy if you are a mere farmer?
Roman Farmer: Well, I am not just any farmer, but the official supplier of our beloved dictator.
Claudia (off-panel): Good evening, Dad!
Roman Farmer: Gentlemen, may I introduce my daughter, Claudia? Imagine: She's 22 and not married yet!

Blog and social media pages
Friday, February 5, 2016
Since our return in November 2015, we've massively expanded our presence in social media. Even though all of them have their links on every page, here's the complete list:
Our own blog
If you like our little comic, feel free to like or follow us in the social media networks you're members of, and use their sharing mechanisms to spread the word. Our eternal gratitude will be yours if you do.
Using these channels, you can also communicate with us, ask questions, or even try and make suggestions. We won't promise to listen to the latter, but are always glad to hear your opinions about our work. Even the critical ones, as long as they're more constructive and more eloquently worded than "you suck."
We deliberately left out Instagram since they're too hipster to allow access from a computer and require a mobile device. We create and publish this comic using a MacBook Pro, and I'm not too fond of switching devices just for one social network (I know there are unofficial workarounds, but never mind these).
