Smirkulees’ Quest pt 3

Getting Smirkulees into the dungeon was the hardest part to write of this series. I wrote and rewrote the method a bunch of times. The shadowboxing gag was going to be the whole strip at one point but I deemed it not nearly funny enough a pay off for 6 panels.

I’m not sure why I always make stink lines green. Lots of good smelling things are green, like mint, pine, herbal rosemary infusion shampoo and The Hulk.

I don’t know what to call the stick character. My friend (who helped with this joke amongst others), Steve Manale, already has a small wooden man named Sticky in his Superslackers comic. If you haven’t ever read it, I recommend you do. It’s the funny!

    Rod’s an excellent choice, Jackson!

    Aphex, what is xtdk? Xylophone-Timpani Dance Kaboodle?

  4. aeonsama

    Why does he have to have a special name?

  5. Evan Snow

    Is Rod a Branch Davidian?

  6. KNO3

    Evan, you just had to stick it to rod.

    I’m pretty sure Aphex meant “XKCD”, but elusive as the (possible?) acronym is, I don’t think it could top dance kaboodles.

    Also, “twiggy” seems hilarious to me.
