Giant Monsters

Posting something, so that it is understood that this has not been the haughty silence of one who is Too Famous to Respond to Comments, but rather the awkward, paralyzed muteness of one opening a door to a broom closet and finding a large expectant audience in there waiting for her to say something funny.

The Client Pt 2 is proceeding apace, or as apacey as it can get whilst I battle giant monsters by day, Twitter draw comics by night.  The Giant Monsters care not for my fame, they want to be made to appear to be biting people’s legs, and they want it YESTERDAY.

Just so there’s a footnotey point to this post: the BBC Techlab comic, as a Sunday colour supplement, I did as an homage to Milton Caniff and Terry and the Pirates, the greatest comic in the history of the universe:


I know what you all come here for:  timewasting links.  You can read all of Caniff’s racy Terry spin-off Male Call strips online– they were done for military magazines, and although obviously more Prurient than his regular comic, show the same 1940s flair for female characters who could be sexy, strong, funny, and flawed.

By the way, OMG, I’ve been shouted out by Forbidden Planet!! Ahaha, you guys have so much of my money…

    Should I be appalled or relieved that I seem to be just as entertained and (dare I say it) aroused by the Male Call cartoons as the GIs of 60 years ago? I think the main feature is that the heroine uses what she has for some kind of generous purposes or for the greater good.

    My RSS feed must be broken. My last update was Person from Porlock and I’ve been waiting impatiently ever since. I just came over to complain/wail/gnash my teeth about the missing Lovelace and Babbage (and boy have I missed them these weeks) and find there are several new entries.

    Oh joy!

    And oh, horror. My RSS feed isn’t working (for this site at least since the rest are fine) and I still want more! Please, please give us more soon!

    Thanks for the links!

    Adding boring eyes (?!) and an “Are we there yet?” to the chorus.

    Thank goodness for RSS! Otherwise, some of us would be constantly tapping at that door: “Anything new yet?”

    “How about now?”


    [sighs, sits back, and resigns herself to wait]

    I’d just like to add my face to the large audience awaiting your delightful “something funny.” Whenever you get a chance to next post some :)

    Don’t mind me, sitting here, eyes boring into you, waiting, waiting.

    Wait, don’t close the… …sigh.
