Welcome to Chapter 4: The Case of the Hunters. Our guest artist is Beau Wright. We are still working out a few things but this is gonna be good. (And yes there is an irony about Joe Hunter not drawing this chapter).
Note: gotta fix a few things
Friendternet Eric the Rhythm Bastard (because there is no father to his rhythm) ended up writing and recording this song.
As we work on getting the guest arc done, please accept this as the update for the day and if notI’ll see you Tuesday.
To explain the song:
Every since I saw Jeff in The Misfits T-Shirt, I kinda wanted to do a song based on Changeling in their style. But for the longest time, I didn’t have a central concept to wrap it around, until your post on the most recent comic. So here’s the lyrics so far, I wrote it from the perspective of a longtime roommate/friend of Jeff, who doesn’t believe any of the crazy crap that goes on.
To all Tall Comics readers coming over here because I’ve linked you here, most of whom, I assume, have no idea what you’re reading:
The basic premise of this comic, Changeling, is that this guy Jeff encounters paranormal stuff, and then dies. We see him in multiple universes, with different characters, encountering weird stuff and then getting killed. I am told that it all ties together in some way, but really, all you need to know in order to understand this particular strip is that this character dies in every installment.
To all Changeling readers: Go read my comic.
I was planning on doing just a three-panel thing here, since I had briefly glanced at Changeling before, and seen a lot of three-panel strips. I thought that it was going to be easy. Then I actually, uh, read the archive, and discovered that there was really no way to do a three-panel Changeling comic that would be at all entertaining for anyone. So, drawing from my extensive familiarity with the “Gypsy Curse” TV Tropes article, I came up with a concept that seemed like the kind of thing that Luke Herr would be into. Then I somehow wrestled it into 21 panels.
It was a lot of fun. I haven’t done anything plot-driven or not-exclusively-comedy in a very long time, and I feel pretty cool for pulling it off to the extent that I did.
Anyway, thanks, or you’re welcome, or whatever, Luke. Whatever you say when you make a guest comic for someone, I would like to say that right now.
(Luke: Thank you for doing this Eli! You did a fantastic job!
Also Unwinder’s Tall Comics is a fantastic series and you guys should read that stuff!)
WHAT??! WHAAAAAAT?! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT??!?!?!
Next week I am not entirely sure about what is going on but it should at least be a guest comic and then we might also be starting the guest art chapter! We shall see.
