A Brief History of Failure from the Big Bang to the Reign of Terror

The New Postal Constituent is here! One extra long fold out poster describing the History of failure from the Big Bang to the Reign of Terror. Consider it a preview of what's to come next month with the Grand Opening of the Museum of Failure.

I drew this comic really big before shrinking it down for the postal constituent, so I thought I'd include an image for scale. The guillotines give you a good sense of the size difference.

Have you ever noticed the similarity in the shape of the guillotine and the printing press? I noticed it last month when someone mistook the printing press in Vol 3 Iss 3 of the postal constituent for a guillotine. I reckon it is an incredibly important relationship. Below please find the guillotine and printing press from this months comic conveniently composited for your contemplation.

And Finally a stack shot, because the stacks are always beautiful and I am the only person who gets to see them.
