#137 – “King Solomon #2”

I take great pride in the horrifying images I leave you all your imaginations on a regular basis.

    What I don’t get is how could the venue have so many bands in one night, aside from being a festival a la SXSW. Maybe it’s just a midwestern thing, but I’ve never seen more than three bands in one night, we’ve already had (iirc), FOUR, now five counting King Solomon, six with Filthy Frakking Fairies batting cleanup. Maybe it’s real in your experience, but it’s just making things drag out in the comic, especially with the inclusion of throwaway gags like “Acapellica”. Which was funny enough, admittedly, but at the expense of the story flow as a whole. And how the hell would James *not* know King Solly was on the playbill for the night, especially if they are Teh Shizzle — they would have been front and center on the venue’s window posters/marquee/etc! Okay, enough quibbling. I guess I’m grousing because I am enjoying the comic, and want to see where the story goes….are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? πŸ˜‰

    It couldn’t be much worse than Clapton’s mauling of “I Shot The Sheriff”.
    *shudders* I think the comic’s great, more please!

    Okay, I miscounted the number of bands; it just *seems* like more than it has been. πŸ˜‰

    I didn’t mean “realism” as in “exact and slavish attention to all real-world considerations”, I meant it more in the sense of “what seems internally consistent and reasonable in context of this universe”. You’re more in the real world than not, in this strip; no semitrailers bursting out from tunnels freshly painted on walls here! The drum-playing panda bangs the skins the same way any other real drummer would; his panda-ness, while odd, is basically irrelevant.

    King Solly’s presence being a surprise, I can get. Not arguing that. It’s a plot point, clearly. Being that late of a surprise was what tripped my internal “no way!” check.
