One of the things I found notable in Siu Ta (which probably only Augie De Blieck, Jr. and I care about, lettering freaks that we are) is that the captions are obviously lettered with a font. I find this remarkable in that Dave is one of the most astounding letterers ever, and yet he's gone and let someone put personal pronoun Capital Is in the middle of words, and spell "Vietnam" incorrectly with one of them newfangled computrons you hear so much about nowadays.

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD.

Love, Chicken Little
