STRIP FOR JAN 5

If you were exiled to the armpit of America, wouldn't you want to be somewhere else as well?

STRIP FOR JAN 5

Postby Anywherebuthere on Thu Jan 05, 2006 2:48 am

Hey guys, just wanted to take a minute to say what's running through this puny little pea brain of mine.

Like, I'm an idiot.

See...while I'm sure some people will chuckle at todays strip, the REAL impact of it's going to be lost untill I wind up publishing that two years of backstory that I originally intended to publish.

See kids, DON'T be an idiot and start in the middle of a story...because all those little plans that you have to lay out, all the little nuances that will play out through the series that you intended to have play out...well, they get lost.

See...if you GO INTO the archives, you'll notice that prior to getting to North Dakota, the Dude smoked. That was a part of his character. A chain smoking, bitter, I HATE IT HERE miserable wretch.

And, towards the middle of season two, he decides to give it up.

And during this story line, the Carcanoma Angels...his brand of Ciggies, well they wind up trying to coax him back.

Which is why this strip would be a HELL of a lot funnier. Because really, those fucking things are some of the most vicious, fascist, just plain mean little bastards on the planet.

But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO....I had to hop in RIGHT in the middle and introduce Chris right off the bat no didn't I.

Because I'm fucking stupid.

So just laugh, get your little chuckle, and as I publish the archives (which MAY be coming sooner then later I might add), it will ALL make a lot more sense.

Cheers

You know... I'd forgotten that he didn't smoke in the comic.

I had remembered that he started smoking, however. ;)

Funny, that. :D

MONGO SMASHES FIRST! It's right there! MONGO SMASHES FIRST!

That crap about him moving his head out of the way during the guardian Devil story arc, so Mark can "throw" the first punch. That was BULLSHIT!

I'd noticed that. But I figured it was something like Dave Davenport. He used to smoke, but then he never smoked.

Or something. ;)

Heh, I'd just assumed from the comic where he went to the shop that he'd quit. I know a few people who've quit who use cigarette's as the kind of last ditch attempt at stress relief when something bad happens.
