The Significance of the Frontier in American History

First | Previous | 2012-09-26 | Next | Latest

Strip by: Billy Hamilton

{Meridien is walking outdoors, surrounded by beautiful scenery. Beside her flies Steve, a fairy.}
Meridien: Ahhhhhh! This is so much nicer than school!
Steve: Aren't you at all worried about what your parents will say?
Meridien: Oh Steve, don't be silly. I'll just never go home!
{Meridien starts to run towards the distant mountains. Steve follows her.}
{Meridien and Steve disappear into the scenery.}
The End.

The author writes:

This comic is completely different than all my previous Lightning Made of Owls comics in several ways. For one thing, it's drawn as a raster image using a tablet rather than as vector art with a mouse. For another, I drew it with no plan in mind aside from "I'd like to draw some scenery," whereas usually I think of a joke and then plan out how I'll illustrate it. And, of course, rather than a dangling plot thread, this comic has an ending. Well, sort of.
