Very effective use of shading in today’s offering.
SAM’S SCHOOL FOR SUPERVILLAINS (Bayonne, NJ) Lesson # 143: Yadda, Yadda, Yadda… The above scenario is, unfortunately, an all-to-common aspiring antagonists’ strategy; instead of poison in the syringe, only knock-out drugs are used, setting the stage for a more elaborate “offing.” In the real world, the villains would simply use poison, blades or firearms which would be quicker and give them a head start on the getaway. For some reason, budding bad guys and gals have this desire to explain their reasons to the intended victim, which eats up precious time and gives the hero/authorities/villain turncoat/whoever a chance to enact a rescue. Do you all out there have any idea how long we’ve been trying to break this stupid habit among our students? Yet it persists… go figure.
I was kinda’ hoping there would be a Sunday panel with this particular arc… drat.
Or maybe the “Root Beer Barrel Polka?”
BTW, Ms. Bea, I saw the artwork on Pinterest where Ellie (with Hubbs standing beside her) is reaming out Sedine, something I have expected for some time and which I take as a hopeful sign for this story arc. Of course, Hubbs was also sweating, much like Sam frequently does. I’m wondering if he was getting ripped a new one as well… or if he’s never seen this side of Ellie before.
Perhaps I should be more specific: We’re all feeling Ellie’s pain.
Intro from The Odd Couple: The Next Generation.
And for tonight’s little something extra, ladies and gentlemen of the audience – a simple drugging and kidnapping, no doubt leading to attempted murder at least.
Good idea – I like it.
I can’t speak for everyone else, but I think “frustration” is a more accurate description. (BTW – although I don’t know how many weeks in advance you draw these, I like AnyFace’s idea of the wig coming off with the helmet.)
