Lackadaisy Bee-glue by tracyjb Lackadaisy Bee-glue by tracyjb
I said I wasn't going to be posting any more of these for a while, but I LIED.
Actually, this one wasn't part of the plan initially, but I had a spot where I could explain Freckle's acrobatic prowess (his gunslinging is often something of a gymnastic feat) or just leave it unexplained...the idea of drawing them as children was irresistable, though, so I threw it in. I figured it kinda sorta worked as a stand-alone comic better than most of the others I've been working on.
The story takes place in 1927...the '1914' thing in the corner is my lame version of a flashback marker.

So yeah...it's kind of huge because of that extra panel -- apologies to those with low screen resolutions. ;P

For anyone interested, there's also a preliminary front page for the web site here: [link]
Nothing's clickable yet, though.

First no matter how crappy the resolution anything that you do is going to be incredible!
Second, I just had an epifany. the reason that Freckle is so into guns and does his acrobats at the same time is because when he learned how to use a gun he was thinking about how useful it would be in those situations, then in a moment of revenge filled daydreams he thought, with that creepy smile of his, how much fun it would be to use it on Rusty in revenge. but he loves Rusty too much so instead he transfers his desire for revenge to alll the unlucky mooks who get in his way, whilst imagineing Rusty's face superimposed on their's.

Poor Freckle! I want to cuddle with him. XD

He's adorable! I love the concentration with he's climbing. XD

Are Rocky's "experiments" the cause of Freckle's current dazedness (I can't think of a better word)?

*Laughs uncontrollably* Rocky really deserved that. I love how his tail looks so fluffy when it bristles. It's a wonder that Freckle wasn't in a circus but Rocky was. Freckle was the better acrobat of the two.
