Surprise - another installment, and so soon! Well, I've been working on this set for a while now, so it's going to be daily again for a short while. Knullius hasn't been told that his girlfriend is now somewhat older than he is. I wonder how he's going to take that? Well, where love is concerned, age, of course, should not be an issue. NB: These are reduced files, and some of the lettering has been rendered a little unreadable - the figure quoted by the Baroness in frame one is '28.6', although that decimal point is really hard to make out.
You're in for a surprise, buddy. And on a side note, the Baroness really should do some cheesecake shots in the uniform of hers.
I am toying with the idea of doing a 'Pin-Up' series, with the women from the strip in cheesecake poses. Yeah, just the women. I'm not that PC
And Thank God for that! Maybe a "Women of Venna's Planet" calendar.
Let's see, do we have twelve women? There's Venna, Suhl, Hazel, Baroness, Jylda, Dortha and Marla...that's seven...well, maybe two each of the more important characters, one in uniform, one in a bikini. If I start now, it'll be ready in time for Christmas!
The Baroness does seem to have her finger on everyone's strings so she can play them like a fiddle.
We can look forward to some sax and violins.
ah...a guy she keeps on ice until there's dirty work to be done! Very shrewd operator you are Baroness!
She's really stretching her luck here...she's playing a very dangerous game, not only with this hulking psycho, but with authorities above her who are going to have conniptions if they find out what she's up to!
So if he's been in the big sleep for 256 years, how long did the Baroness sleep? How long did Venna Sleep? Raymond Chandler has a lot to answer for...
This hasn't reduced down too well - I had a feeling this might happen...but that's 28.6 years...I know, you can hardly see that decimal point, and the eight does look like a five. So the Baroness hasn't been in hibernation at all, and Venna was in for...I have to work this out, but she's about 28 now, and was put on ice partly for her own protection at around age 20...so, I think about 20 years. She's been off ice for about 8 years. I'd better draw a chart for myself, or I'm going to lose track of all these Big Sleepers!
Superb character design and expressions. <shudder>
I was a little disappointed in myself for making Knullius such an obvious cartoon stereotype skinhead thug, but this is a fairly old-fashioned strip, so brick-brained bullies need to look like you'd expect them to. On the other hand, bearing in mind I wrote this one over a period of about a month, with several alterations in the development of the dialogue, I like the way he's nauseated by the flowery name for the planet, but becomes sentimental and marginally poetical when he's thinking of his lady; I did not, myself, observe this until I'd submitted the installment on here.
Aw, so he's a romantic at heart. The big softie.
He's a sentimental thug - a very dangerous thing. Dangerous, because what one might see as a weakness is really a hair trigger for a rampage of bloody murder. The Baroness knows. She has more reason than one for thawing the S.O.B. out.
