Might as well get a "hey, folks! Can you believe what a hassle it is to REMASTER a five hundred page graphic novel with big honking blocks of text" post out of this, I reckon.
On the proofreading for JAKA'S STORY, I think the thing that makes the most sense, now that you have all of your handwritten corrections (and thank you for getting through it, that's a lot of work) is to wait until Sean can send you a printout and then take a yellow highlighter pen and mark where the corrections go. Doesn't have to be exact, just instead of me having to count down the number of lines in which paragraph to find what you're talking about (kind of thing) I can just flip over the page and look for yellow and look at your next suggestion/correction/series of options.
From the vantage point of Proofreading Posterity, it would be nice for everyone to see -- preserved in the CORRESPONDENCE FILES 2016 -- your reasoning behind some of the multiple suggestions, in particular. That way everyone can "Monday morning quarterback" it: MM. I would have gone with Jeff's SECOND choice. Or, I think Dave should have gone with his original choice on that one. Since the book will be in the public domain after I'm dead, any publisher can make their own choices, as well.
Lesson learned (I hope) is: next time let's wait until Sean sends you a print-out of the entire book you can use a yellow highlighter pen on, instead of you hand-writing everything first (although I understand that that's the way you prefer proof-reading). I learned from your corrections on "Chasing Scott" that counting down the lines in search of what you're correcting is what was eating up most of my time. So, whatever we do, it seems to me the solution has to eliminate that part of the process. Any suggestions that do that, hey, I'm wide open! But I think dabs of sequential yellow (good name for a band!) will do the trick.
And now! The WEEKLY UPDATE and CEREBUS IN HELL? Week 75 (but who's counting?)
Take it away, ME! (and Sandeep!)
