Final Clarion News:

Here is the last Clarion Write-a-Thon blog post, which explains who "won" what and why. I came in third (in terms of amount of money raised). The top 12 participants, apart from the ultimate frontrunner, willeventually each receive a 33%-off coupon for a signed first edition; I also got a T-shirt in the mail a few weeks ago. The blog post reveals who won the various draws, including our own Cuong Hoang. Feel free to participate in the survey linked from the blog post; it is there for writers, donors, and "interested observers."

Panel 1: In the psychological institute, Marie is at a table, eating. The young man who passed her in the hall in the last strip approaches, smiling.

Man: So did you get your stupid brain to behave?

Marie: Pardon?

Panel 2: He sits down beside her.

Man: I overheard you in the hall.

Marie: Ah. No. My brain is still outside my control.

Panel 3: He holds out a hand.

Man: I'm Basil. I'm here mostly because of the overwhelming despair, which I conceal beneath a facade of ironic detachment.

Panel 4: She shakes his hand.

Marie: I'm Marie. I talk to imaginary people and go on vision quests with alternate versions of myself.

Basil: win.

Alt-Text: MY psychosis is better than YOUR psychosis...
