Getting Back to Hellford High

Miss Vanessa preaches class.
Dexter Comics Episode 210
Towards the end of the summer, I began writing what would become Dexter Comics Episodes 200-220.

The latest batch of cartoons was inspired after seeing a couple movies with story lines that take place during the span of a day...

Rude and crude, the gang here is more believable than the shit they used to feed us on Saved by the Bell.

Social Programming...

"...You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged.
And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system,
that they will fight to protect it."

-Morpheus, The Matrix


Few movies are funny enough to warrant repeated viewings...
I've seen Clerks II several times now, and it still cracks me up...

"...all that shit they feed us in the movies and greeting cards is just propaganda to get us to marry, have kids and keep the economy going."
-Becky, Clerks II

Holy Watterson...

Was lucky enough to find an old Calvin & Hobbes book at a secondhand store. These two strips are from Something Under The Bed is Drooling...

Takes me back to a simpler time of pushing random buttons,
and football games where the rules were made up on the fly..

Unconditional Love...

Pirate movies are great for summer... Or any time there's an abundance of rum.
My favorite line from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Mmm... Coffee and Cigarettes.

Don't know how I'd missed this Garfield cartoon. It's from 1980, when cartoon characters were still allowed to smoke.

An even older strip from '78 shows Garfield smoking a pipe... Which somehow isn't nearly as awesome as a kitten smoking cigarettes.

Also stumbled upon this image of Sylvester the Cat. A long-forgotten moment from childhood. Funny, it didn't really seem to warp my fragile little mind...
(from The Last Hungry Cat, a Tweety and Sylvester cartoon from 1961)

Billy Madison

One of my favorite lines from Billy Madison starring Adam Sandler.

"Big day tomorrow. A day filled with daiquiris and Nintendos and jack-off magazines"
