I know you must hear this all the time, but really, this is stunning. It made me sad, I started grumbling, and then gave me such a laugh as to make my morning complete.
This, this is why I save 800 deviations in my inbox for so long, so that I don't miss a single moment like your fine work as I peruse my way to the present day. It's like getting a little treat before I head to work at a totally random time.
You really caught my attention here - the plethora of photos on Mitzi's wall - making the point of how long she's been at it, how long it has been since the glory days... Poor girl. And then the indignity and the shock of betrayal yet again! Oh it made me mad to hear the golden boy (do I see prodigy?) really blow her off. The way she looks at our gay duo just ... well, I know how she was feeling. One does not Piss off the Kitty.
And then, Rocky and Freckle! I love Rocky's begging, his "Oh my god please tell me you can do this and that I will still be breathing when Freckle goes back home..." Well, the whole cap to the pages was his smile, fangs on the desk top! I love your work and pages like this are the reason why.
Hahahahah I absolutely LOVE the last couple of panels. Very nice job. I love the 20s/30s slang you slip in all of these.. it's so neat to stumble upon one of those words while you read! Very awesome. I loved Mordecai's expression in response to "you should come along"; that was priceless!
Oh god, I bought your first book and I am sooo waiting for the second one already. ;3; I love how Mitzi says "How would you boys like some lunch?" aaaaaaaaaaaaaa I can totally see what's going to happen next.
lol i can relate the very nearly competent line. me & my boyfriend are in teh same boat & between teh 2 of us we almost make a decent person lol. in the last 6 months he & i have had 3 very sudden deaths of close family. this has been a big help in keeping me sane & that in turn keeps him a lil saner as well lol. i hope 2 get the book soon. i know it gets said alot but ur work is wonderfull. i love that u know what ur talking about. & i love cats & that eara. but ur work has helped keep me from looking like that pic of rocky laughing evily in frount of the barn he sent up in flames lol so thanks alot
