Attention Grammar Nazis! The Great War on Typos have begin!
So, for a long time now I’ve been unable to correct issues like typos (Skatter!) and graphic glitches (Monicruel-Sasha’s Tiara). Once uploaded the comic was immutable without me beating rit with a fish for each change. Ow, my aching fish-arm. But NO MORE! Now I can update old comics at WILL! It’s totally, like, mutable! But I fear I may have lost track of my typos for there have been many.

Please do me a favor, for I know there are many of you out there keeping score on my extreme typo-ality. Point me to any recent-ish comics that need a typo fix. I can’t guarantee a QUICK fix, but at least I’ll have a record on what I NEED to fix.

My know me name. :pun:

I'm quite sure that this should be spelled Cit i zen's Band: http://www.sluggy.com/comics/archives/daily/20091113
(Is that recent-ish enough?)

Yup! That counts! I'll fix it ASAP! WOW, only one typo? I thought I must have had a BUNCH! Let me expand the time frame to include anything since September.

"Thanks to dual portal generators everything **in** front" instead of "everything I front"

Hmmm.. Feel free to slap this down if I'm wrong, but Bun-Bun strikes me as an American rabbit. So he would say 30 million instead of 15 in the first panel.

Er, I'm not sure whether I should mention it or not, but if you want to expand your fix time even farther back than September:
http://www.sluggy.info/search/?s="sic"

"There are typos EVERYWHERE!"

P.S. A number of typos that won't show up on a search for "sic" are typos in the subchapter listing in the Table of Contents. Specifically:
Chapter 9: Return of the holiday seasons : Lara Croft-Macaroni-and-Cheese
should be "Lara Kroft-Macaroni-and-Cheese"

and

Chapter 31: Torg Potter and the Sorcerer's Nuts : Part II: Life at Hoggelryth
should be "Life at Hoggelrynth"

and

Chapter 42: That Which Redeems: Clay Young Week
should be "Clay Yount Week"

and

The list of subchapters in "Chapter 53: A Time for Healing" is out of order
Specifically, subchapters "Monkey Business" and "Flash Forward Z1" should be exchanged in the order...

and

The list of subchapters in "Chapter 56: A Time for Hair Raising" is out of order
Specifically, the first subchapter "Hair-Brained Scheme" is listed as the last subchapter.

and

Chapter 56: A Time for for Hair-Raising: Thats the Spirit
should be "That's the Spirit"

P.P.S. Clay Yount provided three filler strips that were not identified as his.

Found another! Today's page says "were". The apostrophe was forgotten.

Panel 3 should read: "Found it on the body of another henchman."

Well it's not in a comic, but in the spirit of fixing typos, it should be "The Great War on Typos has begUn!"

(Unless that was intentional, in a humoroidal sort of way -- in which case, carrie on carrieing on...)

It was mentioned in the reactions thread, but I'll mention it again here: Panel 4 today has a double typo "you gapping" (double p) instead of "your gaping." (single p)

In today's strip, Crushestro says "you gapping head wound."

Figure you probably meant "your gaping."

Wow, when this thread got no responses, I was like "Hey, not too shabby on the screwing-up-of-spelling-and-grammar everywhere!" then I got the seventh post from swmartian saying

And it also landed right when my house was bronchitisy...

Anywho I have my work cut out for me. I shall keep this thread open and sticky.
And, yes, I have my work cut out for me.

And yes the title of the thread was intentionally wrong.
