As funny as it is, the FART one is showing up twice.I'm not seeing any egregious typos right off. Maybe put in colons in the therapy ones after the words/neuroses being defined. (Yes, the fart one is missing a colon!)Is that end-to-end Rush as in the band? Cuz I'm all for that. "Of Salesmen!"Overall another good set. I hope you'll continue to do some and share them with us!
Hi Travis - Yeah, I'm trying not to be TOO fussy about the corrections. The definitions of the words/neuroses being defined should be in quotation marks and italics, as well, I think. But I don't think it affects the humour quotient appreciably. Personal view. Long-term I think as long as Jeff Seiler corrects them all -- exhaustively -- from the beginning, we'll be looking at FINAL corrections on any Omnibus Collection if we ever get to that point. CEREBUS IN HELL? YEAR ONE, kind of thing. I think we'll be running one strip a week on AMOC instead of seven and then doing 24- or 48-page comic books depending on how the "monthly #1's" program goes.
Well, Dave, here are my "exhaustive" suggested corrections for this week:Strip 1, panel 1, balloon 1, line 1--Insert colon after (1681); also, not knowing your source, I still think it probably should be (1861), since psychology/psychiatry was an offshoot of 18th century philosophy. People weren't really thinking about psychology in the 1600s. Also, I think it was Freud who coined the term "transference", 'though I could be wrong.Strip 1, panel 1, balloon 1, lines 2 and 6--Insert quotation marks around the definition. I don't think italics are necessary, but I won't quibble if you do.Strip 2, panel 1, balloon at the top, line 1--Move the hyphen from after 3D to after SUPER. For the sake of consistency.Strip 4, panel 1, balloon 1, line 2--Insert a colon after (1883).Strip 4, panel 1, balloon 1, lines 2 and 6--Insert quotation marks (as above).Strip 6, panel 1, balloon 1, line 2--Delete the hyphen between CITY and BLOCK.Strip 6, panel 1, balloon 1, last line--SUNROOF (1 word, no hyphen) (per OED).Strip 7, panel 3, balloon 1, line 3--ICE RINK (2 words, no hyphen) (per OED).
