Strip by: qvaak

Meridien: Aaaargh!
Oliver: What's the matter?
Meridien: I feel a great darkness coming.
Oliver: uh oh.
{An ink bottle is spilled over the page on which the comic is drawn, blotting out the panel}
Meridien: It has passed.
Oliver: Oh good.

Remember when Panpear made a series of seven strips each drawn in about 15 minutes (or less)? Always looking for artificial challenges, I thought this could be taken as one. I'm a slow thinker and suck at drawing, so this was an idea doomed from the start, but hey, that's half of the fun!

My plan was I'd draw seven comics in two hours. Post-production would not be on clock, but would me minimal - colour correcting, pasting panels together, and such would be okay. And I'd work with old style ink and pen, because this was a fun additional detail with the original series.

I managed to finish about five strips (the number can be adjusted depending on how much one is willing to bend them term "finish"), some of them so horrible I doubt I'll ever try to get them published.

The current strip is by far the best I managed.
