2006-06-07: Escape Phrase 56

Homage, honest

This is loosely based on the Krazy Kat of 3 Toboctor 1937. It was... challenging. Herriman is probably the single strongest influence on the way I think about comics (the rest of the recipe is mostly just Mazzuchelli's "City of Glass" adaptation...). I am apprehensive about this, but also pleased. Sorry it's such a huge file, I wanted to make sure the fake halftoning effect came through.

Also, monday's comic? I just didn't want to draw like Liefeld. You know how it is.

This comic is in the storyline:

H: Dream dust awaft -- I can strike while the fools sleep --

[[H observes Jimothy dreaming that he and Tsamantha have decapitated H.]]
H: But this "dream" -- durst they dream of my defeat? -- allow it? No!

H: As they sleep I'll confine this prefidiest duo to an oblivionish prison! They'll never know to wake!

H: Into th'anti-firmament with you ne'er-do-wells! Ah, the others will be so proud!!

H: Danger's averted and stability's returned! A happier ending's never happ'd.

[[H is actually still asleep. Tsamantha and Jimothy sneak past it.]]
Tsamantha: Now, quick, while it's resting! Let's go!
Jimothy: Do -- do you think it's dreaming?
