And the truth shall set you free! Just in case it's not obvious let me drop the subtlety: I, Andrew Goff, am the Humboldt Herald and Will Startare is the Humboldt Mirror. If anyone disagrees with me, let them provide me with proof!
I think this edition of Seven-O-Heaven wins the award for having the smallest potential audience. I mean, it's bad enough that I do a comic that only appeals to a rural, coastal California county. Now narrow that population even more by requiring your readers to also be hip to the local blogging scene. Somebody punch me. I deserve it.
For those who aren't "in," the Humboldt Herald and the Humboldt Mirror both cover local politics and are both published anonymously. Friends of mine that are more savvy have pointed out that for "free journalism" they have a pretty high output (especially the Mirror). Does Rob Arkley/Security National bankroll an anonymous online, muckracking enterprise? Feel free to speculate.
That's a Pierson's hat on my head, if you couldn't tell. My wife pointed out to me that my take on "Heraldo" looks like a younger, thinner Michael Moore. Thanks dear. I'm sure the Mirror heads will eat that up (if there actually are any).
