True when it was written back in 2006, probably even truer now.
They’ve really captured his eyes, but the nose is maybe a little off.
Its an effective cure-all.
And so at last we have our full team! I’m sure their first meeting is going to go just swimmingly.
My notes for the original creation of this strip back in 2006 reveal the following:
“Some strips pretty much write themselves, while others emerge as a result of focused Brain Fist writing sessions. This week’s strip is an example of the latter and – I think – a pretty successful example. Sometimes when I have to actually sit down and make myself write an episode of BF, I worry about the outcome feeling a bit too forced. But in this week’s strip I’m particularly pleased with how well everything came together after the initial push.”
There’s a leader who really knows how to inspire confidence in his team.
There’s nothing in my notes about the strip’s creation to support this, but I can’t help feeling there’s a bit of an “Ah Pook Is Here” influence on this one.
Chaise lunge? No…. Chaste lounge? No…
My notes reveal this strip to have been inspired by listening to a bit of Nick Cave, which is something I was probably doing quite a lot of around the time of Brain Fist’s creation.
He was probably hoping for a bit longer than one panel.
