On Today’s “Sally Forth” Comic
I’m very sorry in not posting this earlier (due to spotty Internet service abroad) but I want to truly apologize for anyone who took offense at what proved to be an unfortunately timed “Sally Forth” strip today. Such comics are written three months in advance (and pre-published over a month in advance for Sunday supplements) and so the strip (in which Ted surprises Sally with tickets to “The Dark Knight Rises”) was in no way a direct comment on–or reaction to–the unbelievable tragedy that occurred this weekend at the “Batman” premiere (nor were the “Dark Knight” comics that appeared on this site this week, which were pre-posted this past Monday due to travel plans).
But I know such comments due nothing to alter what has happened nor may counter understandably raw feelings and for those individuals and families sadly affected by such a senseless, awful act and those who perceived the comic in poor taste due to such timing, I greatly apologize and send my very deepest condolences.
Please take care and be well.
