2006-01-30: Escape Phrase 1

Exciting changes

Welcome to "Escape Phrase", an ongoing story. So far what I have of it is the remnants of an attempted 24 hour comic (my hand seized up is why it's not done; please consider this when you're looking at the art!), but it's going to go on. If you like it.

There are a couple things to point out:

This isn't the same Jimothy as in my earlier "Testing Jimothy" comics, but it is the same actor. (I think I'm Osamu Tezuka!)

Narrative-wise, I'm mostly influenced by the excellent Bruno, although it's going to be a science fiction horror story. Every page is either a competely different scene arrived at in media res, or there are more panels than the previous page. Occasionally I switch scenes on a single page, but I'm trying to avoid that. (There is one exception, sort of, but it isn't. You'll see...)


This comic is in the storyline:

Jimothy: Sigh.

Tsamantha: Hey, Jim!
Jimothy: Tsam! I... hello! Gosh!

Tsamantha: Can I sit down? I'm sitting down.
Jimothy: Um!
Tsamantha: So you're not up dancing? You should dance! It is HEALTHFUL!
Jimothy: I... no way. That's a terrible idea. No dancing.
Tsamantha: What if you went to dance... WITH ME?!
Jimothy: Gulp!
