    This really isn’t the worst abuse Roy has used his Jedi trick to commit. I recall a time a few years back when Roy made Carolina, Dana, and Medusa stand around in their underwear when they kidded him about having those powers in the first place.

    What ‘treck’? You are hereby banished from trekkie-dom! Twice in a week!

    I support your hypothesis even as I object to the stereotyping – and any way, it must be Bangalore if it was outsourced … ;)

    Yep, this is what happens when you try to get all the strips done in one weekend, and they feature lots of repeating words. So ‘Sulu’ switches places with ‘Spock’, and ‘Trek becomes confused with ’trick.’ By Saturday, we’ll see if I made it through without writing ‘Jedi Mind Trik.’

    Only flaw in the theory is that, in 2004, Kyle was still drawing the strip. John and I had recently finished our run on The Rugrats strip- where we first worked together- and it would be 4 years before I joined WD. But it seems as if we used to have an editor who’d inform me if a mistake came through. Maybe they trust us just a little too much now.

    Rita is the logical one here? SHE’S the one making sense? Oh hell, this IS it. 2012 is INDEED the year of the apocalypse.

    My editing technique consists of having my mac read the gags back to me. Unfortunately I can’t do that with graphics. So once I see the drawn gag I am forced to rely on only my eyes for edits. Therefore I often read the gags as they should be not how they are. I would like to say Treck is cool term of endearment used by Roy, but nah it’s just another typo.

    @johnzakour

    We did a gag on The Rugrats where the letterer (not me on that strip) had a word balloon pointing to a reflection in the mirror instead of to the character speaking. No one caught that one till it was too late. That’s what happens with deadlines. You’re saying “Phew! They’re done and delivered,” when you really should be looking them over a few more times. I dunno about that mac editing program though. The scripts still come to me with some mysteries in ’em. ;)

    and you have Roy in the first panel saying Star Treck instead of Trek….oopsies!!

    Here I thought that was deliberate on Roy’s part. Using Treck as a combination of Trek and dreck to describe the latest Star Trek film.

    Jedi Mind Treck. Star Trik.

    Rita is right! She is so right… worlds collide. But we should not be surprised that Rita knows rules, all the rules. Even the inane ones.
