Halloween 2010: The Beast Within
I hope you like epilepsy, because the animation got just a bit out of
hand this year
Within the individual panels everything seemed under
control, but when looked at as a whole, we may have crossed the line here.
I hope you enjoy the flickering glory. I think the part I like best about
this strip is the contrast between Namahs fantasy and the clearly
sad-to-be reality. Thats always the case with Halloween costumes
- imagination soars, the possibilities come to life, and then paper mache
and pipe cleaners fail to bring justice to the vision. And the cooler
the costume is, the harder it is to see out of - this I learned one year
as a misguided and enthusiastic velociraptor. I have to admit as well,
this comic came out overall a little more disturbing than I had planned.
It was all fun and games to write this stuff out over coffee, but actually
seeing Namahs monstrous fantasy wreaking havoc is creeping me out.
It makes me wonder how seriously she takes it - is it just an idle fantasy,
or more of a goal?
.I think the guards deserve a raise. _____________________________________________________________________
Liz: Hello and welcome to the Dave Show. Starring
well Im not
sure what that thing is, but Liz is on harp and Gregori on drums. My job
in this animated monstrosity was to keep Tinsel from wearing what may
be mistaken as a pope hat. I may have missed my mark there.
