The 14-part Theatre of Crud arc is the next arc of my webcomic The Palace, and it's coming soon to this blog. All 14 strips will be single-panel. As with all other arcs, I'll be posting one strip per day.
Letterer Janice Chiang's old Transformers comic word balloon shapes, which were boxy with sparks emanating from the corners to distinguish the robot characters from the human ones, influenced my boxy word balloon for the talking digital camera in the strip below. Day four of Theatre of Crud refers to a certain jozjozjoz.com post that was brought to my attention by a Time.com article last week.
