Comic for Monday, Jan 14, 2013

- Sporkman by John Troutman
- That "Riff" guy (Rifftrax website)

I tried to cram more references to superhero origin stories into that first panel, but it was already a mouthful and I wasn't sure how to quickly convey the concept of being bitten by a radioactive spork.

There are a few reasons why I haven't shown any visuals of the gritty Sporkman movie. One is the same reason every panel in the last two comics has basically been from the angle: Sticking to the impression that this is a recording in progress, not a final edit. Another is a simple lack of space given the dialogue, and the final reason is that nothing I can draw could possibly match whatever you visualized based on Elliot's description in panel two.

That said, I'm glad their conversation has progressed to them looking at each other. I'm not particularly fond of having them looking towards "the camera", even if there is a literal camera for them to look at in these comics.
