Every now and then people ask me if I have difficulty concocting new ideas for the comic. Not especially; ideas come easily. It’s the good ideas that can be the difficult ones to come by. In the last couple of weeks I’ve actually ended up tossing a pair of comics into the “emergency folder”, which is a sort of oubliette for comics I didn’t realize were rotten until I finished them, or for partially completed comics I managed to figure out were rotten before I spent the time to finish them. The comics in said “emergency folder” will most likely never see the light of day unless something comes up which prevents me from completing a “good” comic instead. Hence the name of the folder. But then I’m sure that if I do end up using one of these comics, no one will be able to tell the difference. Hell, for all you know, you’ve seen several of them already.
Today’s comic nearly made it there, until I realized that I was probably setting the bar too high and if I kept it up I’d end up with more comics in the “emergency folder” then were actually on the site. That seemed a bit self defeating, given that the entire purpose of this project is to share the content, and if I had no intention of sharing it I may as well just catch up on Stranger Things instead.
That’s another thing. The last television program I sat through front to back was Breaking Bad, which was years ago, as you may already know. The fact that I don’t watch much TV has little or nothing to do with any show’s quality, but more because every time I sit down to watch something I can’t shake the constant feeling that I should be doing something else instead. That feeling usually wins.
In any event, Molly reviewed the inimitable RGbros this weekend. I think she has good taste. I mean, that comic is consistently entertaining and the art is OK.
By OK I mean fantastic. That’s what’s known as being ironic.
More Friday, possibly from the “emergency folder.”
