Amy vs. Mell
September 4, 2011 ~ 4 Comments
Aw… I’m very fond of this one. Not many people outside of the Girlamatic gang have done Li’l Mell art. Alexander Danner is still doing great, thought-provoking comics at his site, although I don’t think he’s done an Amy story in a while, which is too bad. He and Bill Duncan do the excellent Picture Story Theatre over on Modern Tales.

Reading Li’l Mell’s dialog (or monologue), all I can think of is Henry Phillips’ “She’s Talking Again”.
@Shaenon: Hey, yeah, speaking of “Li’l Mell,” the site has been showing Page 7 of the current story (the page that begins with Sergio saying, “I’m serious! Lately I’ve been having more and more trouble communicating…”) for months now. Am I doing something wrong in my attempts to view it, or has something delayed the posting of more pages, or is Page 7 just the end of an unusually short storyline?
Nah, my artist dropped out and I haven’t gotten another one.
Man, this was fun to do. The Amy stories were completely silent, so I was feeling a little starved for some dialogue when we were doing them. When Li’l Mell started up, and whe was such a chatterbox, especially in the first couple of stories, it just seemed like exactly the encounter I was looking to script.
This is, incidentally, the only fan story I’ve ever done.
And man, I miss working with Bill.
