The Script For Today's Comic!

SCENE: I have to walk through this.

PANEL 1:
The first panel is all caption:

CAPTION: We now present:

CAPTION (graphic): Home on the Strange, a new series from FOX!

PANEL 2:

It's the first panel of Home on the strange. Hopefully, you still have the art. The dialogue, which will have to be done by you, will be:

KARLA: Well, I still have to go to work today, but you get to stay home today.

TOM: I know. It's so -

PANEL 3:
Darkness.

CAPTION: Due to declining ratings, this strip has been cancelled by FOX.

PANEL 4:
A black panel. Nothing. Nada. Zip.

Ferrett Says

What inspired this? Oh, I don't know - maybe the fact that "Drive" was cancelled before I even had a chance to watch it on my TiVo, is all. Or maybe Firefly, Space: Above and Beyond, Wonderfalls, or Futurama would like to have a chat with them.

And speaking of beginning strips, this week's advertising magnate here at HotS is repeat customer Fish Tank, a strip about as old as we are, but it's about fish. Any cartoon that makes references, however veiled, to "Beneath the Planet of the Apes" is all right in my book, so go check it out.

"Mr. Taylor, Mr. Brent, we are a peaceful people. We don't kill our enemies. We get our enemies to kill each other."
