One Language Is Never Enough

#191: One Language Is Never Enough

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

So it looks like the United States finally came to their senses and went metric -- 40 years after our friends set off for their journey. That's great, but it seems to be a problem for Dr. Mysterious's time machine.

Also, Terry Boldface seems to speak Japanese fluently. How come he knows the language so well? Where did he learn it? Maybe we'll find out one day.

Funny thing that it's a 1.6 LITER car, which is in fact metric. Must be European.

Characters: Boldface, Terry; Dr. Mysterious; Mr. Katana; 80s Moviegoer who looks like Jerry


Dr. Mysterious: Good evening. We're looking for a carburator for a standard 1.6 liter engine. Also, some 2.5 inch screws.

Mr. Katana: Good evening, gentlemen. My name is Mr. Katana. I try to meet every request -- but in 2051, the US finally switched to the metric system.

Terry Boldface: Dōmo arigatō, Katana-san. Shusshin wa doko desu ka? [Thank you, Mr. Katana. Where are you from?]
Mr. Katana: Yokohama shusshin desu. Anata no nihonjin wa hōhō ni yotte, hijō ni yoidesu. [I'm from Yokohama. Your Japanese is very good, by the way.]
Terry: Gengo o hitotsu wa kesshite tarinai. [One language is never enough.]


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).
