shmoo Van Pelt?
Or real Van Pelt?
Does it matter?
Awesome! Should be full color.
Love the detail on all of CAL’s nightmare creatures – especially the fact that I can recognize all of them. Now if I remember correctly, Calvin is often beaten up/eaten/abducted by his own imaginary creations. (How many times has Hobbes beaten the snot out of him?) Thus I can see his cockiness leading to his downfall when his minons turn on him – maybe a Stupendous Man type failure?
Didn’t Van Pelt “condition” Cal in the old days? This could get interesting.
Oh man, those monsters in panel 1 are fantastic! How many C&H comics did you have to dig through to reference those guys?
Also – oh man I can’t wait to see what Dr. Van Pelt has up her sleeve
so fucking cool.
Beware… Monsters from the ID…
I stared at that first panel for 5 minutes. Bravo.
This is incredible!!!!!! JY you are a MASTER!
Too awesome! This is gonna be a wild trip. Great work man!
Now, back too mah Megaton pack too see Luc.. I mean Van Pelt… looosin’ comunicatshun skills…
JY: Thank you, Roaddragon. Nobody loves me like you do. I officially renounce all other praise I receive for this strip!
Its that one instance. That moment of undeniable truth. That single moment where you know: you are afraid.
Who thought-up Van Pelt? Cal? Chuck?
oohhhh, here comes that blow to the self-worth! this’ll be great.
Shades of Miura Kentarou in that first panel, JY: any time I think of Berserk, intentional or not, I count as a win. ^_^
This may help the uninitiated
Know what the funny thing about nightmares are? No matter how bad the source material is, our perceptions make them so much worse, since we tie them to underlying fears and phobias. As bad as Van Pelt was in reality, Cal’s experiences with her were at an age where she was much more frightening and dangerous, when he was actually VULNERABLE, so she’s going to be ten times WORSE than she really was.
And that means that Cal is about to be ROYALLY ass-invaded…by his own psychosis.
It’s enough to make a reader cry with joy.
OH JY, I love it when you come up with something to turn all our speculation on its head! CAL can’t control it, everything in his brain is coming out, including Lucy! This is going to get REAL interesting.
I predict that Cal may come into contact with a creature with as big an imagination as himself, who is also in the shmoo…
Snoopy in a biplane FTW!
JY, your storytelling skills continue to amaze. Did NOT see Van Pelt coming. Can’t wait for the next frame.
Apparently “William tOffens” agrees with me.
mrgod2u- I was hoping for something similar to that too… battle of the imaginations!
FUCK yes! Van Pelt. Been counting the strips til we got an official appearance.
Even if she turns out to be just “Smoo Pelt”(as it appears), or a figment of his imagination, I’m on board with it.
My comments never got posted?
Third panel. Great job, JY. First the revenge of the baby-sat, now this. You really are a connoisseur. CAL’s about to lose whatever control he has left.
Just incredibly beautiful! Weapon Brown is going to go down as the “Watchmen” of web-comics. The pinnacle of greatness, of what they can and should aspire towards. My guess is that Cal’s own imagination is going to devour him. Can’t wait for the next page!
This is gonna be cool ! I got the back story and Dr. Van Pelt makes this a real wild card. Will she be carryin’ a football or a stuffed tiger? Aw well, I didn’t want to sleep tonite anyways. guess I’ll just read some comics.
Oh shit, I caught up! Now I have to wait for updates like everyone else!
Susie always carried “Mr. Bun.”
maybe I proud tomorrow
That’s one helluva Anxiety Closet!
As much as I love the whole saga, the classic ink stylings and hoot of a script, these next several pages have been my all time favorites. Good Times.
You know, I think I just noticed something: I don’t think Cal has EVER said the word “girl” or “girls” throughout his time in the comic. It’s always been “cunt”, “slit” or some gender-based slur. Was he intentionally avoiding the word because he knew what it would do to him?
Tiny technical question- do you hand job the shading sheets (duo-tone might be even too old school for you) or digitally add them (I still need to learn that)
JY: Yes, a tiny technical question shouldn’t be any problem for me to answer… how could it come back to bite me on my ass? It’s not like you are… AN ALLIED SPY!!!
(Sorry, sorry… I’ve been watching “Nazi Mega-Weapons” on Netflix. No, I use Photoshop tricks for my shading. I will tell you more about it… AT THE CONCENTRATION CAMP!!)
