Foot and Zeta work surprisingly well together. I hadn’t expected that. I guess Foot was just waiting for someone to talk to.
I don’t really have anything to say about this strip, so here’s some old doodles of Young Zeta. I’m currently sorting through twelve years’ worth of sketch notebooks and keeping whatever looks interesting.
I love this strip so much. The anatomy and perspective in the third panel came out all wonky, but I ended up loving even that; it looks like a Lynda Barry layout or something. Admittedly, my fondness for this strip probably stems mostly from my intense love for the Kuribo’s Shoe level of “Super Mario 3,” which Seanbaby captured so much better than I ever could.
I’ve said this before, but Seanbaby was the first person to think of being funny on the Internet and actually succeed.
Zeta sitting in Foot does look a lot like Mario riding Kuribo’s Shoe. “Super Mario Bros. 3”: good game, or best game?
ANTONIO SMITH looks like he’s had about enough of this nonsense.
I only wrote this strip to get Mike and Ruby offstage by the end of the storyline, but it turned out awesome and I should win ten Pulitzers for it. Especially Mike’s smile at the end.
At this point, Artie is kind of not fully aware he’s gay. This comes up later.
“Chuckling over Shavian punctuation” still makes me crack a smile, but you know me and cantankerous Irish playwrights. I hate the AP style guide, though. It’s against Oxford commas. This comes up in my day job all the time.
