I’m very fond of this strip, especially for the way Madblood’s expressions and poses came out. Also for the picture of a pimply young Madblood on the wall. I probably could have gotten away with doing more strips of Madblood just hanging out at his mom’s house, trying to get his plans of world conquest and miscellaneous revenge back off the ground.
Madblood and Dave are always this close to making friends, but it never quite works out.
Madblood’s version of events may not be 100% accurate. Especially the part where Helen was “his woman.” But look, he’s trying to be friends! Give him some credit!
I like to think that Lovelace’s emancipation involved the assistance of Project Skin Horse.
I’ve said this before, but I feel bad about Lovelace getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop in Narbonic. She’s manhandled, jilted, and killed, and in the end the only bright side is that she and Dave can finally bond over being ruthlessly experimented upon. Good for her, taking the initiative to get the heck out of this comic.
I was never totally happy with the resolution between Lovelace and Dave here, but, like Dave says, there’s not a whole lot that can be said to make it better.
It’s Mell in her pinstripe lawyer suit! Excellent! And, yes, Lovelace can’t sign the papers because she’s a hologram. Mell might be a little confused on this issue.
How good is this strip? It’s got Helen in a towel, and I only had to draw two panels. That’s my definition of an excellent strip.
I drew my own bathroom, more or less. Helen’s has more hearts all over the place.
Aw, there’s a photo behind them of the whole gang in happier days. Or, if not happier days, less complicated ones. I used the photo again in a Narbonic story I did for the Couscous Collective’s SPACE anthology, currently out of print but someday to return in omnibus form.
Is this seriously the next-to-last week? How did that happen? I’m going to miss writing these little notes every day.
