Really, this is how Abe would have turned out if Frederick’s grandfather, the arch-fop King Frederick I, had had his way with him. Frederick II could barely be compelled to change one tobacco-stained uniform for another identical tobacco stained uniform, particularly after the Seven Years’ War. But you always dress other people rather more adventurously than you do yourself, right?
In other news, it was brought to my attention over the weekend that we broke into The Webcomic List’s top 300, and are currently at #284 of 21 thousand or so. I have no idea how they came up with that number, but being in the top 1.3% of anything by any decent measuring system is pretty cool, right? I remember, back in the day, I used to check in on it and we’d be regularly around #1600 or so, so this news was quite a surprise. And we owe it all to you, so thanks, dear readers! Next time you’re in the area, we owe you a Dirty Charlemagne!
