Okay, the thing is that the slogans rotate, so not everyone gets this ironic moment. And it’s true, the whole thing about being in black and white is supposed to be taken in that humorous, conscious, passive-aggressive self-deprecation.
Still, though, Matt Tarpley went with shades of purple, and I’m guessing that’s today’s clue:
This week Mary Death goes to Japan! For real, I am in Japan right now buying all the things.
Also, there will be a special guest artist appearing for Friday’s strip. Eggciting! I have left a tiny clue as to which comic this artist comes from …
So, hey, play along. To the one, it’s a great strip in general, written and illustrated by a talented artist. To the other, I’m never right about these things, so come Friday you can appropriately razz me for being wrong about the clue.
Tarpley, Matt. “Japan!” Mary Death. 4 November 2014.
