Answer:  FACE VALUE

(I like this pun!  All the clue words came to me instantly.  None of them are new, and only two of the jumbles were new.  But, I liked the answer letter layout.  The cartoon and its dialog did a great job, in conjunction with the the Clue/Question.  We used to have a gentleman who would take the clue words and string them together in a clever sentence.  Whatever happened to him?  Maybe today he would say:  AVOID CHAOS, or you’ll face your FINALE . . . and end up a CHERUB.  A cherub is a baby angel, right?  If you’re lucky enough to make it into heaven you become an angel, right?  Do you start out as a cherub, or are they from babies that died?  I guess I never paid that much attention to that kind of stuff.  Anyone out there know???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
