Great comic. I adore the compromised lines and I feel your angst.
I remember trying to ink a comic in college after I fell off a 3-story building, breaking both my legs and tearing the ligaments in my drawing hand. I sat at the art table in a wheelchair sideways [because one leg was fully extended], inking the pencils [I’d drawn before the fall] with my busted hand in a brace. I botched the gig and it got published and I didn’t get work at DC Comics for a decade.
thanks for sharing. now, because of our common experiences, we can increase our intimacy and grow ever closer in mind and spirit.
Okay, now MY hand is getting some good use…
Wait, is it too late to take that back?
Remember–you’re wielding that cleaver with your right hand!
yeah, i figure the best way to cut off my LEFT ring finger is with my right hand…
sometimes i feel that way about my brain…but that’s a whole ‘nother comic, now, isn’t it?
I’ve just come back for a third look at this. It rocks. The images are great and I love how you talk to the finger. High four (sorry).
thanks so much! i figured the only way to deal with the situation was to be a hard-ass. the only way that stupid finger’s ever gonna learn. just like having kids, right? ;->
Right, that’s just how it works.
the other hand
I like the subtlety of “on the other hand.” I would have had to resist underlining the joke.
Re: the other hand
thanks for noticing that! i was wondering if anyone would.
the one other “punny” thing i wish i’d been able to fit in there was a mention (or pic) of crossing my fingers…
Congrats; it’s a wonderful thing.
Don’t stress about your name/etc, SHOOTING WAR got pretty much the same deal: http://static.flickr.com/44/166834497_bce1402cc4_o.jpg
Where it says “for more info:”
