One of the things I really like about Tarol's Goblins strip is its ability to inspire me.
Oh sure. My creations certainly don't measure up to Thunt's, but they keep motivating me to improve, and to try new things and make new characters and stories. That is something that has been missing for several years in my life.
And it doesn't take much. Last week, Thunt put up a one page advertisement for a new book that a friend of his had written. He had some of his Goblins discussing the book, as if it had been published in their world. It was a particularly funny snippet that appeared in the middle of a pretty intense story-line in his main comic. And I for one very much enjoyed the brief pause before the action began again.
So here is my reply. This three part strip is made using the latest in "cut-and-paste" technology. All of the artwork is still by Tarol Hunt. But the dialog is mine, and the humor is... (well, I certainly won't blame Thunt for the jokes here.)
So sit back and enjoy the first - and probably last - episode of
