Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
So ends the Pardoner's Tale. I changed the circumstances around which the three men betrayed each other (obviously), but the real way was far too complicated to draw in four panels. As such, you get them arguing about an 80s Pop-Rock band and killing each other in the process. Why? Because it sounded funny in my head. That's pretty much the only criteria I have for drawing a comic. Whether anyone else might find it funny is largely irrelevant.
I'm starting to pray for "Canterbury" to end now. There's only a couple more tales left (in the Norton Anthology), but still. It's draining to work on the same topic for over a month in this strip. Variety is the spice of life after all.
Of course, if I'm complaining now, just wait until I get to "Twelfth Night."
