The Grimm Brothers didn’t actually come up with the original idea for Little Red Riding Hood. In fact it also came to my attention, during my extensive research, that they weren’t even behind the first printed version. Obviously this shocked me to the core. It rendered my comic a work of pure fiction and I don’t have to tell you how sad that makes me. Fiction is unconstructive and therefore always a complete waste of everybody’s time. Sorry.

Apparently I have nothing to say this week. Not even the littlest of opinions or silliest and most inconsequential of anecdotes. Nothing. The word “iron-tiger” keeps popping up though. Any text beneath a weekly updated webcomic would benefit from an iron-tiger. You can’t argue with that . Still, I haven’t found any way to work it in, so what good is that? No good at all! That’s what. No good at all, Iron-tiger.
Phew, what a break! What a holiday! Tropical beaches, tan lines, Piña Coladas, topless photo shoots, getting caught in the rain, numerous phone calls from the ghosts of Harry Harrison, Robert Sheckley and Ray Bradbury respectively telling me I’m “the chosen one”, radio ga ga, girls gone wild, drunk wrestling Woody Allen, new pants, surprise winning game of thrones, exotic plant life, hot tubbing with the entire Star Trek: Deep Space Nine cast, buffet of life, declared “BFF” by french comic artist Édika, bikini bonanza, permanently joined the band Electric President, got filthy rich and saw Firefly season 2. Yes! None of that happened – And now I’m back! Cool, huh?
I saw Joss Whedons “The Avengers” last week. Did I like it? Let me just say, I may end up marrying it. Yes, movie-to-man marriages are highly controversial in many ways, but love always finds a way. Keep in mind though, that nothing is decided as of yet. For one thing I want to keep my options open for Nolans forthcoming “The Dark Knight Rises“. Everybody knows you can only marry two or three movies in a lifetime. I’ve already exceeded this limit by at least 20 or 30. Safe to say that’s way too many and people are starting to talk.
Meanwhile fellow web-cartoonist – the exceedingly talented Mr. Brendan Boughen – suggested this might be a good time to cash in on the temporary electric buzz surrounding the Avengers by featuring them in a comic ( this was by the way only his exact words in opposite land). Of course I had no patience for such ideas at the time. Unfortunately I suffered a minor black-out and woke up a week later with this comic all done. What happened?
On a serious note, when the special edition Blu-ray of the comic comes out, you will hear the commentator track state that the original title was “Caught in a trap I can’t walk out Because I love you too much baby “. This is a downright lie!
When you’re done reading Anyone for Rhubarb? I highly recommend checking aforementioned Brendan Boughens work out on Cartoons by Jim. http://cartoonsbyjim.com/ It’s not very funny …in opposite land!
Pirates are a safe bet, right? Pirates, cutlass’, bandanas and some awesome boat plundering and things automatically start to reek of smash hit. Pirates are for pop culture of the sea, what zombies are for the mainland. See also pop culture of the air: flaming seagulls of wrath, and pop culture of the forest: That guy Tom Cruise plays in Legend. You can’t go wrong with pirates. Still, you can’t say I didn’t make a darn good try.
Some day this placeholder text will be replaced with some of the deep insights and thoughts behind this comic. There’s gonna be all about how the giants represent fear of commitment and how the knit sweaters symbolize hope in the midst of a global financial crisis. It’s gonna be deep and thought provoking. Even controversial at times. But for now you’ll have to do with this temporary text. I’m sorry.
