Every so occasionally I get asked if a comic is based on real-life experiences of mine. I can tell you with utmost confidence that this strip is in fact based on my feelings toward the rapid industrialization of impoverished nations under corrupt regimes.

This was the first year (I think) since the inception (maybe) of BSV that I didn’t make valentines for it. I’d hang my head in shame if it weren’t for the fact that it’s almost 2 A.M. and doing such a thing would probably just end with me falling asleep. Zzzzz, etc.
