This comic probably raises a couple of questions. Just remember I’m no historian. I’m merely a guy who likes to convey to the people 100% factual historical subject matter down to the tiniest of details.

This comic is part of “The Rhubarb Connection”. An ever ongoing sort-of-story, episodes few and far between. To make matters even worse, it simultaneously constitutes a crossover between a series of comics with Boy George and the aforementioned. It’s nuts. So nuts right now.
However, should you feel like none of this makes any sense to you, don’t lose faith. It’s only natural mind you. Not everything is supposed to make sense. Most stuff in the world makes little sense to me – just to name one thing.
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.
