    One of my new favorites. The artwork is wonderful and witty.

    Wouldn’t the cakes and all go off or dry or something on the way? :-D

    Yeah, this issue troubles me, too. It’s really hard to voice the underlying assumptions in a consistent fashion; it has something to do with pleasure, suffering and sustainability (of pleasure and absence of suffering). But pleasure is somehow connected to novelty; suffering is connected to one’s neighbor having something slightly better or different than oneself; and sustainability means forever, which is a very long time…

    So, we complain. Forever.

    A kingdom of people as terminally unsatisfied as Girl.

    Good as always, but I’m still partial to the previous page as a standalone story.

    I guess some Invisible Cities should stay invisible.

    Thankyou for that. Nostalgia’s not what it used to be either.

    I love that the King turned his room into a home office.

    Also, I could totally go for a walnut now.

    Best. Bedtime. Story. Ever!

    I’m sure there’s a parable or hipster chow in there somewhere. I’m sure it has something to do with your kid coming home after college to find their room is now a den.

    People en masse just like to whine. No good deed goes unpunished in some way. Listen only to the individuals, often you will find appreciation.
