And thus begins COMMISSIONPALOOZA! It’s currently scheduled to last all the way through June 13th, unless more strips get commissioned, in which case it’ll last even longer! In any event, these strips are a lot of fun to make, so keep ‘em coming! I’ve uploaded a tenuous schedule for Commissionpalooza, if you’d like a peek at what’s ahead. That’s very subject to change, but it should give you some idea of where we’re at.
Now then, as for today – and the rest of the week – we have Watership Down, the most depressing thing written about bunny rabbits ever. Though a classic book of the 20th century, I believe most people of a particular generation will be more familiar with the (surprisingly faithful) film adaption from 1978. It seems very, very similar to the book in most respects, just with some bits and pieces trimmed out. It’s also been nightmare fodder for children for well over thirty years now! Seriously, there’s some disturbing crap in that “kid’s movie,” not the least of which is a song by Art Garfunkel. I mean, talk about scary!
In any event, the story opens with a legend about the origin of the rabbits and their god, who is quite literally the sun. As you might expect by now, I just can’t let god-talk go without rejoining our favorite cheesecake divinity.
Also, thanks to everyone who filled out the survey for me. The results will actually be incredibly helpful for me in the future. I’m going to be leaving the survey online, so if anyone that hasn’t taken it still wants to fill it out for me, every little bit of data helps. Thanks again!
