Don’t know what I can say about this. Frank Brunner is a really great artist, and that’s a heck of a cover–it makes me want to read the comic inside. Too bad Tom Batiuk had to junk it up with his own stuff, the sad, miserable “creators” that live in his sad, miserable comic strip. I think he should abandon the idea of a Sunday strip that references his characters, and just do comic book tributes every week. Just the covers, no stupidity in the margins. I’d like that; at least the artwork would be good, and we’d get less of these smelly, trollish creatures that proudly wallow in their own mire.
Once again, there’s not a joke to be had here, but I am amused that The Idiotwins think that “spongetonite” stinks as a concept, to the extent that it cannot be associated with…The Amazing Mr. Sponge. Really, the dumbest non-parody superhero of all time, and apparently he’s just too good for “spongetonite.” That is rich.
At present I have no idea what Monday will bring. Possibly more of The Idiotwins tolling in comic-book Hell, with an unhinged Brady fuming that his ideas were squelched, although I would note this: that would be something interesting, that would develop a story beyond just stating a concept and smirking…so that probably means we’ll get Les watching the “For Les” tape. Or Funky at the gym, haven’t had one of those in a while.
We can be certain of only this: it won’t be funny, it will be dull, and it will be excruciatingly padded.
