Locust Vasectomies

For me, the best part about this comic is the blood spray in panel one.  That’s because, as I masked the page with frisket and splattered the page with a toothbrush dipped in ink, my son was watching intently.  When I peeled the frisket back to reveal the effect, he said, “that’s cool.” It may not seem like much, but when you’re able to impress your world-weary teenage son, it feels like the best thing ever.

BTW, frisket is the real-world equivalent of the Lasso Tool. And use an old toothbrush, not the one in current rotation.  Unless you’re into Heian era tooth fashion.

I really love the off-spray in Panel 1. I’m glad that Jim never learned to color inside the lines 🙂

This was during my wordy writing phase. Poor Jim had his work cut out for him with all the dialog.

@Myopic and Force glad you gents liked the comic–it’s fun having a few months distance between our work and seeing them again on the website. I think this script grew out of an idea Jim had for the more mature gamers to encounter an immature gamer with wackiness ensuing. My first write up of this piece cast the DickyDoo character much younger and not quite so offensive. The idea quickly morphed into two comics one being this piece and the other our “It Takes a Village” script.

Cheers
