The Blazing World (4 of 13)

Publication Date: August 10, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

In the book, Cavendish refers to all the creatures of the Blazing World as being "Bird-Men," "Fish-Men," etc. To today's pop culture addled brain, it makes them all sound like superheroes. Unless it's just me.

It's probably just me.

A comment yesterday pondered if the Bear-Man's language was a simple substitution or not. Well, it is, using one of Blambot's great fonts. That said, the Bear-Man isn't saying anything of interest, though some of it does make me laugh. If memory serves, his dialog in the third panel is "Stop talking, fat pale ape."
