Bonus Feature Cliché Lookout: Or Just Run
Once again, we’re straying pretty far from typical content you get on DVD bonus features here.
One thing I always hate in movies and TV shows is when one character gets captured and kidnapped simply because they listen to or are intimidated by their captor. Yeah, getting kidnapped would probably be super scary and all, but unless the kidnappers are overwhelming you, or are threatening you with a gun or something, why not just run?
Seriously, if you’re super calm, and look scared, you’re going to lull your potential captors into a false sense of confidence. And, just as their defenses are down a bit, you take off running like a scared rabbit. With any luck, they’ll be stupefied by your sudden flight long enough to let you put some serious distance between you and them. Of course, if they have a gun or something they might just, you know, shoot you. So your mileage may vary on this one.
Annie Walls, author and blogger, did a write-up of me and my little comic here. Please check it out.
Believe it or not, I have a bit of a life outside this comic. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe, but I assure you it’s true. Preamble aside, I have a bit of an announcement: my wife and I are expecting our second child, and we found out this week that it’s a little girl. We’re really, really excited.
What does this have to do with the comic? Not a whole hell of a lot, really. I’ll probably take a week or two off in late July/early August, but otherwise business as usual. Of course if you’re a comicer, or even if you’re not, I’m going to open to doing some guest strips during the time I’m unavailable. If you’re interested, please reach out to me. I will, of course link out to your site/blog/comic in the write-up. And you’ve got plenty of time to work on something awesome.
