Hi, guys. This week's suggested and/or necessary corrections:

Strip 1, panel 2, balloon 2, line 4--insert comma after THOUSANDS

Strip 2, side comment, line 4--ANACHRONISM is kind of misused here. I would suggest, instead of IS AN ANACHRONISM, try IS OUTDATED. But, I will admit that the former seems funnier, even if it is used incorrectly.

Strip 2, panel 1, balloon 1, line 1--technically, it's SLOWLY

Strip 2, panel 2, balloon 1, lines 3 & 4--I would suggest hyphens: PREHENSILE-DRAGON'S-TAIL-A-CITY-BLOCK-LONG

Strip 2, panel 4, balloon 2, line 2--"SLOWLY"

Strip 3, panel 2, balloon 3, line 3--There should be 3 dots in the ellipsis after CALIBRE

Strip 5, panel 3--The WHICK! WHICK! that isn't italicized, bottom right, sticks out like a sore thumb.

Strip 6, side comment, line 3--It definitely should be COSTING, not COSTIMG

Strip 6, panel 1, balloon 1, line 1--suggest inserting a colon after (1557)

Strip 6, panel 4, balloon 1, lines 2 & 3--insert commas after OLD, CRAZED,

Strip 6, panel 4, balloon 2, line 3--insert comma after DWARFISH,

Strip 7, panel 2, balloon 2, line 1--suggest inserting a colon after (1823)

Strip 7, panel 2, balloon 2, line 2--insert comma after ILLNESS

Th-th-th-that's all, folks!

Is this really helping?

Oh, and as you are on the cusp of CIH? #0 being in stores, I am reminded of my favorite pre-game, locker-room pep-talk:

"Boys, if we win the coin toss and choose to receive the kickoff, try to recover your fumble. If, on the other hand, we lose the coin toss and have to kickoff, PLEASE try to block their extra-point attempt."

;)

From the dictionary.com definition of "anachronism" (so, take that with a grain of salt, but still):

1.

something or someone that is not in its correct historical or chronological time, especially a thing or person that belongs to an earlier time:
The sword is an anachronism in modern warfare.

So, I don't see where it's misused, since a sword is the example they use here! Plus, "anachronism" is a funny sounding word.

I'd also disagree about the comma in the first one, for the reasons stated a few days back for CIH?1's cover ;)

And I disagree about slow vs. slowly and the hyphens in the dragon tail description, more for humor's sake.

But the rest of the corrections look right. Although the "calibre..." one is strip 4 here, not 3 ;)

Yeah, Travis, I actually debated whether or not to correct ANACHRONISM,because I've seen it used many times in just the way you cite and because it is a funny-sounding word. But my American Heritage defines it as "representation of someone as existing or something as happening in other than the chonological, proper, or historical order". When there are cases like this, I like to err on the side of caution.

And, that's why I wrote that *technically* it's SLOWLY. I stand by the multiple hyphens, though.

Thanks for the correction on the strip number. Sometimes these things all run together.

And, just a reminder to everyone, Dave *asked* me (and anyone else interested in so doing) to do this. Voluntarily--I'm not getting paid for proofing these strips.
