Eh, if it wasn't broke he'd just sell it. Then again, I don't think he's mercantile and business-savvy enough to do something like that.

It's hard to remember that this is supposed to be regular Slick and not evil Slick.

A man's heart just isn't worth anything.

A man's heart is worth everything to himself, and nothing to everyone else. Too-oftain including the woman he loves, who has her own eyes too soley on what he can do for her.
Aside from that, it's a nice visual pun.

Ouch. How would you feel being told that your heart is worthless?

Is that what Sleaze sees or wants to see? Or even wants to show himself?

I'm pretty sure broke means it HAS no money, not it's WORTH no money. But nice try with the pun, Tats.

Notice he's looking through evil Slick's glasses. Therefore, he places a value on the heart, rather than knowing love is free

actually, this made me reconsider what the previous comic meant - were those price tags, showing how much each thing costs (is worth to the buyer), or are they labels, showing some sort of intrinsic valuation (is worth to the owner). but then that complicates today's one - is slick's heart of no value to him? or is it 'broke' because it has nothing to give to others? (when your heart is broke, can it still give love?)

I don't think the price tags are a reflection of how Slick values things but how Sleaze values or would value them. Or possibly what price the Patriarchy or Satan would put on them.

The hearts get scanned when Devil people buy something, like a credit card. Sleaze got mad about not being able to buy anything when Slick's heart was declined. Based on that I'd say the tag on the heart represents what it can buy in Big D's ecosystem. It's really all anyone has to sell to him, after all.

I really wonder how everyone got to this place anyway, if they were born there or moved there or what. I wonder if there's more to it than just this little town.

I think we're gradually seeing Slick's heart thawing... and now he's realizing he has had it broken, but it's also combined with his recent Matrix-viewing of seeing the hidden assumptions of pseudo-value attached to everything. I think this is probably a step on his journey and a positive one--note that he can actually get the heart out of the freezer, as it;s been losing the ice.
