Oddly enough, I can’t express in words how fun it has been to pen Brain’s loquacious dialogue. And with his saving moves in today’s strip, it’s not unreasonable to imagine him as a kind of secret superhero. I dub him the Logophile, lover of words (mostly because I couldn’t find a better one), with a signal thusly:


Who knows where he may strike, what dastardly deeds he shall circumnavigate, what perilous perdition he shall vanquish with a lash of his tongue!

…Hey, a girl can dream.
