This thing just gets funnier with time. I used to be able to make it all the way to, “LOOK, MA! TOP OF THE WORLD!” without cracking up, but now I’m losing it at, “There are medals on the shining chest of Madblood!”
As a character, Madblood is a little too easy to write; he’s just a straightforward overblown mad-scientist character, as opposed to the more subversive, non-stereotypical type of mad scientist represented by Helen (although I guess “perky blonde bespectacled madgirl” is now a trope in its own right, thanks to myself and certain Hugo-winning genius webcomickers I won’t name here). But he’s damn funny. And Jeffrey’s song captures his combination of arrogance and fussiness beautifully. Fine work, Jeffrey.
In other Madblood recording news, Peter Lovejoy recorded Madblood’s rant from the final story arc as a voice mail message, no doubt frightening and alienating many loved ones. You can listen to it here. Thanks, Peter!
In other news, Narbonic merchandise is now being sold through the new Couscous Collective online store. You can now buy Narbonic stuff, the brand-new Skin Horse Volume One, and minicomics by all the Couscous creators and save on shipping. Thanks very, very much to the redoubtable Pancha Diaz for building the store.
