There are two Easter eggs in the last panel. First, the designs of the chess pieces are taken from my dad’s original “Through the Looking Glass” game for the Mac. Second, the position of the pieces is the exact one represented by the characters when Alice checkmates in Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass,” only with the black and white suits reversed, because I didn’t feel like coloring all of Chapel’s horses black.
oh poor chapel! it always makes me sad when a comic character loses a game of chess!

The weight of the lance. The burden of my duty. CHARGE! I, like Sir Lancdelot before me, must protect my king at all costs! NEIGH NEIGH Checkmate, Chapel! Sometimes, chivalry only goes so far.

Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League? Find out every Wednesday!
