Demon Slayer Seth: Karaoke
October 28, 2012 ~ 10 Comments
I remember drawing these strips while hanging out with Eric Burns during one of his trips to San Francisco. One of the ideas I had about Caliban that never made it into Narbonic proper was that, even as a mortal, he still has an angelic singing voice–which is unfortunately too much for most people to hear safely.
The last panel of the last strip is very Perry Bible Fellowship. Also, I wish I’d drawn more of these things.

It’s not too late! You can always draw more of these, and we’ll be glad to accept them.
Okay, so I’m dense, but I’ve never understood the crossed clubs/drumsticks/marimba mallets/whatevs. Someone please smarten me up.
I thought they were tootsie-pops. Which is to say; suckers.
Maybe it would help if we referred to them as suckers?
Kay et al: IIRC, There is also a similarly shaped lollipop (smaller, and no chewy center) under the brand name “Dum Dum”.

Let’s sing karaoke
Tonight at the bar!
Our favorite chibis
Will each be a star!
First Mell is emoting
A note full of death!
Enchanting those suckers,
Poor Cal and poor Seth!
Then Seth comes out wailing,
So flat, full of pain!
Like driving a nail in
To Caliban’s brain!
Now Caliban’s belting
A note from Above!
The fans’ heads are melting,
And Mell is in love!
In particular, I remember the two of us drinking coffee while you began preliminary work on Cal’s musical ‘note.’ You had been somewhat concerned as to whether you could render it sufficiently… er, sufficient.As it turns out, you could.
Eric: We were in North Beach! I think I’d just finished up some stuff at Viz.
Just so you know, reading this gave me a Dogma flashback. You rock, Shaenon!
(Now hurry up and finish the Narbonic/Skin Horse RPG so we can buy it from the Couscous Collective store and support your next webcomic!)
So I just registered so I could comment, Mell’s so cute like that!
