Aha! You might wonder if this is some sort of prekwill to earlier installments of Anyone for Rhubarb. Namely this and this. Thinking you got it all figured out. All the while, I’m intentionally misspelling prekwill to throw you waaay off. Not unlike a magician who wants you to look at his right hand, so you don’t notice what the left one is doing. All part of my plan to slowly and steadily brand myself as an enigma wrapped in a riddle. I’m not answering any questions you see. I’m posing them. Is prekwills some sort of deep sea fish for example?

I’ve been watching quite a few westerns lately. Most recently The Wild Bunch and I can tell you this much, you wouldn’t have caught Pike Bishop copy pasting anything. He drank whisky like it was water.
Use of captions as a means to convey the story is often frowned upon among comic feinschmeckers. Like a directors use of voice-over in a movie. I suck!
This comic capitalizes on two of most modern peoples favorite topics right now – musketeers and butts. A third thing would have been pants that are also kind of a sports jacket, but that’s not in there.
If you feel like singing along to the last panel, just roll with it. Bear in mind though it’s a sad occasion, so no silly voices or weird air-guitar. Just sing and let your voice ring straight from the heart. Also, the first part of this post may be considered a spoiler. Therefore, if you haven’t read the comic yet, you shouldn’t have read the previous. If you did, don’t burst into tears. Tears are for the weak!
It occurs to me you might benefit from a YouTube link to “Do You Really Wanna Hurt Me” by Culture Club/Boy George to really tap into the feel of the comic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2nXGPZaTKik
And for those of you who never even heard of Boy George and deem it necessary to educate yourself on the subject (it’s really not) consult the Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boy_George
And here’s a strip starring historical figure Napoleon Bonaparte. The pressure to feature him in a comic has been tremendously small. Finally I caved.
Great! This comic is loosely based on an untrue story about a left-handed heavy-weight champion kick-boxer from the backwoods, who travels to the big city to become a celebrity dentist to the stars.

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.
I present to you this wonderful period piece. What particular historical era it depicts is still a bit uncertain, but it’s the olden times, that’s for sure. Back when flutes were key in every high society household. My guess would be the early 1970′s. The guy definitely looks like he could be into Jethro Tull. I could be wrong though, but it would be the first time ever!
