Super-Quiet Truck

Postby Screwball McGoo [gDC] on Wed Apr 04, 2001 1:09 am

I just read through the archives and I was blown away by the panel where the truck gets the girl. I said, "Woah!" and, while I understand this is lame, I said it OUT LOUD. Movies don't do that kind of thing anymore.<P>In hindsight I feel stupid. She just told her life story but...<P>Thanks for the super moment!<P>------------------

I just got through what was probably the busiest time of my life. Seriously. <P>But I'm pretty proud I did it without missing an update. <P>It's funny trying to do a "near future" story. The technology will quickly outpace your own imagination. I had that super quiet truck being a hybrid of natural gas and electricity. Meanwhile, it looks like the engine of the future may be hydrogen! <P>Oh well, I can always go back and edit the archives!<P>

My comic project hasn't really come along...and I wonder if it'll ever be a comic. I'll do something with my ideas, someday. I'm in no hurry.<P>On a different subject, last Thursday's comic was...strangely chilling. "I wonder how many murders have never been caught because they've been killed." Odd Jobs has always had a subtle strength like that.

I had fusion powered motorcycles in Wandering Ones, and the debate grew into the actual feasability of such a thing. I found that my readers are a lot smarter on such things than I am. Maybe I should just stick with tracking and wildlife.<P>Odd Jobs has really gotten suspenseful in these last several weeks. There's even the angst ridden scene of the girl dying (in the best traditions of John D. MacDonald). A lot more powerful than if she called from off screen, "ow! That mean guy hit me!" and then everything was peachy keen.<P>How will this affect David in the future?<P>------------------
