Onefer

Without further ado, here for the first time I reveal: THE NEW COMIC



Oh hang on that isn't it. Not at ALL.

Episode 2: Hughes eats McGinty.

I see your problem right there.

So far, I don't think I wouldn't read any of your "new" comics. If these are the fakes and rejects, I'm excited for what is really on the the way!

DCW said...

Wait this is my idea.

I'll see you in court!

My heart is still broken over Millicent Mumps and the Fishman Family.

I think I may want this on a t-shirt.

Nick said...

So, suppose Hughes bites McGinty, but does not kill him, thus infecting him with lycanthropy. What will McGinty become, a were-monkey-wolf? We need a standardized word schema for animals that turn into each other, methinks.

I actually discovered the script for the last episode of SGR....


"Panel one: Rocks fall
Panel two: Everybody dies"

sorry to spoil it John!

John A said...

The technical term for a were-monkey-wolf is a "Ceri-pip" or, if you're Scottish, a "Hef-hef-hef-wemnu".

JonathanCR said...

But McGinty isn't a monkey. He's an ape. So he would become an apewolf. Why does that make me think of helicopters?

In any case, clearly their shared love of amateur theatrics would overcome any natural predatory instincts. I think there's a lesson for us all there.

John A said...

Since the word werewolf doesn't contain the word "man" surely this discussion is deeply flawed.

And yes, JonathanCR is right, McGinty and Hughes are good friends and colleagues.

I know you didn't make it for this, but I think it has T-shirt potential too. Apart from anything else, I know a lot of amdram types, quite a few of whom clearly ARE either McGinty or Hughes.

Are hef-hef-hef-wemnu (it's an uncountable noun) related to wendigo? I have recently been reading Margaret Atwood essays on wendigo, and I'm very, very afraid.

Umm, yes it does, it's the "were" bit.

Don't try to bamboozle me with your facts Ionfish, if it weren't for the internet none of use would be any the wiser. None of us is a hef-hef-hef-wemnu-ologist after all.

Jake said...

I wonder what role within theater these two fit into. Maybe a musical number?

laner said...

please don't let this be a joke.

i am quite excited.

the word verification is 'distinee'. i think it is a sign!

laner said...

oh.

Anders Lamure said...

I want the next comic to be "Linton's Dad Comix!", he looks like a powerful dude who knows what's going on.

John A said...

Anders, you are getting dangerously close to the truth.
