«Five-Minute Comics: Part 1»
Because of a family illness, instead of regular comics, this week I'll be sharing some strips that I drew as part of a game I played with friends. Each comic had to be written and drawn in five minutes. -- Randall
[A man and a woman stand facing each other.]
Man: Jupiter will make its closest approach to Earth in decades.
[The man points behind the woman, and the woman turns around.]
Man: In fact, here it comes now!
[Jupiter, about the size of the characters' heads, hovers into the frame at about head-height.]
Jupiter: Hey, guys.
[Jupiter continues to hover through the frame as the characters watch it go.]
Jupiter: Anyone need a gravitational slingshot?
Woman: No, I'm good.
[A man sits on a box, playing a guitar.]
Man: ...Now I don't blame him 'cause he ran and hid, -- but the meanest thing that he ever did -- was before he left, he went and named me "Trig."
[A man looks down a well.]
Man: Oh God, a little girl is trapped down this well!
[The man runs off screen.]
[He returns, leading a pony.]
Man: It's okay, we got you that pony you always wanted!
[He tries to cram the pony down the well with the aid of a large stick.]
Man: Get... in... there... -- Ugh!
[A man and a woman stand in a server room.]
Man: I like to get back to nature by coming out here to the server room. -- The warmth, the whirr of the drives, the drone of the fans, the howl of the wolves...
Man: Yeah, we started a reintroduction program.
[A man stands by himself in the frame.]
Man: Yo momma's so masculine that she... oh, wait, that's your dad. -- Is your mom the lady over by the door? Aww, she looks nice!
[A man runs toward another man who is wearing a powdered wig, holding a gun in one hand, and a flute in the other. Behind him, someone is chasing him on a motorcycle.]
Man: Bach, activate the magic flute and teleport us home! Wagner's right behind me on his Ring Cycle!
