I’m watching Fringe and reading an abundance of superhero related comics at the moment. This may be an unhealthy cocktail.

Vigilant long time readers may well notice that this looks like a follow up to the classic Rhubarb strip “Something, something, then pirate”. You’re right it is. Not really on popular demand though. Just regular demand. Mostly my own.
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!
I came up with this idea on the toilet. Naturally this is not something I wish to discuss any further. I ask for your understanding on this delicate matter.
Many people have already asked me what music to listen to while reading this weeks comic. Well, my soundtrack suggestion would be The Cars’ 1984 hit single Drive. In my opinion, the vibe and atmosphere of this particular song embodies the fundamental feel of my comic and therefore makes for a rich and intense reading experience. I hope this answers your question.
I don’t have a whole lot to say ’bout this one. Well, actually I do, but it’s all pretty boring stuff, so I’m gonna spare you the rambling. Keep an eye on my (embarrassingly rarely used) blog though. I’m planning to feature an alternative take on this weeks comic along with a few golden words on the subject in the very near future.
This might be Green Lanterns first appearance on Anyone for Rhubarb, but it’s actually Melinda Gordons aka Ghost Whisperers third. Check it out!
For those posing one of the following questions:
- Is Ghost Whisperer an exotic fish with two heads – one evil, one good? Read here.
- Is Green Lantern a sporty brand of nail clippers? Read here.
For those of you thinking; “has Anyone for Rhubarb reverted to the old one-panel formula?”, I can assure you it’s not the case. Due to a general lack of time I had to dive into my precious archives of unpublished comics to meet deadline this week. It’s pretty strong stuff. One can only hope it doesn’t fall victim to censorship.
If you want even more Rhubarb flavored panels and can’t wait for next Tuesday, fear not and I’ll tell you why. This week I’ve been so fortunate as to land myself a guest artist gig at marvelous comic artist Joshua Haukes equally marvelous webcomic “Tales of the Brothers Three”. As part of the comics 3-year anniversary, several artists have been invited to do guest strips. I’m very honored to be among these. Head over to Brothers Three and read my offering. It’s that extra shot of Rhubarb you’re looking for. When you’re done give the rest of Joshuas impressive comic archives a go and we’ll rendezvous back here next Tuesday.
Guide for reading this comic:
Pour yourself nice cup of coffee. Add fitting amount of schnaps. Relax your arms. Let them dangle down along your sides. Say out loud “I’m the best there is at everything I do”. Repeat the sentence seven times. It’s a lucky number. Swing your dangling arms back and forth. Nice and easy. You’re a swaying tree in the warm summer wind. Wilder. Faster. Feel the rhythm. Rhythm is a dancer. You’re free. Direct your eyes at the screen. Read the first panel. Stop. Start again from top until done.
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!
