    All the cards look the same. Which is the right one?

    ENDTOWN (to the tune of “Downtown”, by Tony Hatch, performed Petula Clark)

    When you want more than just an ordin’ry story,
    You can log into: Endtown.
    When you are withering of texting and twittering
    And blogging, too: Endtown.

    There you’ll enjoy adventure in kaleidoscopic fashion,
    Fantasy and majesty and tragedy and passion,
    And tenderness.

    Your world will be brighter, too,
    And you will live for tomorrow, when you are invited to:

    Endtown – Make a new start in there.
    Endtown – Follow your heart in there.
    Endtown – You will be part of their world.
    Endtown

    Under the desert is a bustling, pleasant,
    Little shanty town: Endtown.
    Hundreds of people know that living down deep’ll
    Never get ‘em down: Endtown.

    Now, you would say they’re animals, with only one or two men.
    Fur on the exterior, but underneath, they’re human
    Beings inside.

    And they deserve to survive,
    And they’re all waiting for you, now. Prepare your arrival to:

    Endtown – Tolerance, that’s the theme.
    Endtown – (other than rats, I mean.)
    Endtown – (Some of the cats are mean, too.)

    Endtown
    Endtown
    Endtown
    Endtown

    Ballistic or atomic or a crashing, heavy landing,
    You’ll have read a comic with a growing understanding
    Of your own soul.

    So, thank Aaron Neathery
    For letting you be a part of the making of history:
    Endtown – Tell everyone you love
    Endtown – Tell all the world you love
    Endtown – In their own world, they love you.
    Endtown
    Endtown

    To the tune of “Cat’s in the Cradle”

    My gal and I’ve found the M-G-C
    Arriving on an airscout from the new P-T
    But there are mutt attacks and kills today
    We’re learning fast we might not leave that way

    They were climbing up the rocket
    And as they’d reach the door I’d say
    “You’re gonna be one more gone
    I hate to have to kill one more”

    And the mutts on the rocket
    And the airscout too
    Little by little
    More coming in view
    When we going home, Holly?
    Don’t know when
    Will we have an airscout then, gal?
    We might not have a way out then

    Well my Holly opened the M-G-C
    She’s putting in the card that she got from me
    Could we close it and go? We’ve got to get away
    We getting overwhelmed, all we can do is pray

    And as I shot another
    I’m grinning in fear and said
    I don’t wanna die right here, gal
    We both aren’t gonna die right here

    And the mutts on the rocket
    And the airscout too
    Little by little
    More coming in view
    When we going home, Holly?
    Don’t know when
    Will we have an airscout then, gal?
    We might not have a way out then

    (to be continued…)

    When Jenner and Level Head spar,
    They’re constantly raising the bar.
    The silly old fools –
    I’m sure there are rules,
    But neither one knows what they are.

    @Jenner

    Bravo! And kudos! Both brilliant and faithful
    I like how the new goes, it stays true and graceful
    Intricate rhymes and scats that follow close
    Wonderful times! And that’s no hollow boast!

    If you’ll permit me to drop out of my customary style, here:

    The artwork of Endtown is consistently of high quality, but there are several very nice features today.

    The camera angles work very well, from the camera view originating near Holly’s hand, providing detail of the card to the inside and outside view of the battle.

    And we can see, also, another method for the MUTTs to get at them. In Panel 4 at the upper right, you can see two mutts in mid-air, one just leaving his perch, as they use themselves as living projectiles to deal with the threat.

    More of them are lined up, ready to drop — and we see the creature on the airscout communicating. We’ve seen that the Topsiders are able to use that same language to command the mutts, but in this case I cannot help but wonder what it is saying.

    Perhaps something like: “We who are about to die insult you!”

    @Level_Head

    I agree that the artwork today is particularly dramatic, heightening the pace of the story. Note the subtle detail of the lighting in panel 2: Not only is there light cast onto Holly’s fingers, but also her finger is casting a shadow on the chip – a darker grey and the mid-grey. You wouldn’t spot it unless you looked for it, but it registers in the awareness, nonetheless.

    This strip is good, and now that it is safe, I can say I am glad to see MGC did not stand for Miller Genuine C*** .

    @ Level_Head and Jenner… in your case, a little friendly competition is good for all the rest of us. please keep it up.

    Tonight’s forcast: Continuing showers of diving mutts,may be heavy at times, making airscout travel hazardous. Mutants are advised to remain indoors (unless “indoors” is a topsider rocket which might have been recently reprogrammed for either an early launch or imminent self destruction.) Extreme caution is advised.
