I almost got to Page 17 before the close of July! But I have to wait for the page to dry before I can erase the pencils and scan. STILL, I beat my goal like 18-year-old penis, hitting 16 when 15 would do. Anyway, page 17 is fun and harkens back to the project's origins. Although, it's less autobiographical. I need to get that autobio element fired up again. Soon. Once all the players are in place.

WIZARDS be weird. The best parts are those with the henchmen. The worst parts are the stills that get narrated for five minutes at a time. The whole thing felt like it was meant to be two or three times as long and it suffers a bit from an ending that happens because the movie says it does, rather than say anything satirical or make sense plotwise. I loved the Vaughan Bodé designs and the thick Marilyn Monroe Fairy with permanently erect nipples — surprise! The Richard the Lionhearted and Leni Rosenthal high-contrast rotoscoping was weird but effective.

Now I'm off to watch the bonus features, which I expect will be self-congratulatory and scathing toward critics!

It's the one thing I'm good at. Sort of.
