@$$hole!: Haunted Cabin 5
Two things going on in this page that have a personally funny touch for me:
1) Answering the phone in panel 2. Back when I worked in retail I used to have to take regular calls from the other departments to check in. This happened just about every half hour or so. Over the course of an 8 hour day, that gets pretty old and you have to find a way to entertain yourself. So you come up with fun ways to answer the phone.
The first thing I tried was pretending to be another department – but people catch onto that pretty quick. So then you just try to intentionally mess with people. Hence, some of the quotes you’ll see when answering here.
2) The last line in the 4th panel, this is a quote that comes from a webseries called Twiggers Holiday. It’s this crazy little eccentric series about a kid with a purple monkey on his head. It’s wild and zany and silly (until the end), and it has hilarious (and somewhat offensive) quotes in it like this in it.
Anyway, I’m prepping for holiday time this weekend, and getting the book ready for the printers. Progress is slow bu steady. There’s going to be original content, and the first hundred or so strips in luscious full color. It’s going to be a trip to put together, and I’m looking forward to revealing it at convention season next year.
So have a great weekend, get plenty of rest, and prep for the next two weeks filled with HOLIDAYS!
