I had seen several articles about the San Francisco Quake the Imps and Luci visit in this strip, suggesting that far from being as completely devastating as it might initially have seemed, the damage was relative minor. Now by that I mean the entire city wasn’t leveled, but lots of buildings had suffered some degree of damage that could have been fixed… at some significant cost. And that cost would be out of pocket, since insurance claims did not cover such random “Acts of God” …like an earthquake on the San Andreas Fault (and come on, who could have foreseen that happening there?). However, many people had fire insurance. It doesn’t take a genius to work out how people decided to recoup their losses.
Of course, that’s the Unofficial Official version of what really happened. With our newly revealed insights into the goings-on of certain minions of Hell, we now know different.
Remember to let us know if you plan to hit the San Diego Comic Con. Maybe some of you guys can get together and demand plushies from Courtney… or buy me beer… or buy each other beer… or buy plushie versions of Courtney… or just say, “Hi!” …whatever works for you.
And while we’re remembering thing, don’t forget the Weekenders and Behind the Imps on the Facebook LPI page (follow the link on the right side of the page). We also have a new bonus comic under the vote-button-doodad-thingy.
And while we are working on memory-related things, remember to recycle, wash behind your ears, don’t swim for two hours after eating, The Maine …and The Alamo.
